Flowers

Megan's flowers were beautiful. They included soft pastels to match her white and pink trimmed casket. We made sure that we ordered the yellow color she loved and even mixed in her beloved "Tweetie Bird."

Even though it is tecnically the fall season, the flowers gave me the feeling of a spring beginning.

They were soft and young, yet vibrant at the same time.

I was worried that because of the nature of the event the flowers would coincide with the life of someone who was old was mature and had lived a long life.

I was pleasantly surprised to see how many of the bouquets had so much pink and yellow. I love pink and yellow together.

The flowers combined together as one huge hug over Megan's grave site.

I just noticed the purples as I type this too.

Soft, fresh, so spring like.

The fact that it rained on Thursday and Friday has probably helped keep them looking fresh for as long as possible.

Megan's temporary marker made a perfect tie-out for the balloon bouquet we got her on Thursday for her 10th Birthday.

She was one of our pink princesses and our sunshine who loved tink along with us.

We sang Happy Birthday to Megan. We know her birthday was happier than we could ever imagine.

One of our duties of being parents is helping our children live as full of a life as they can even if it creates our greatest sadness here on earth. We truly are happy for her.

I remember thinking how the flowers were very spring-like in spite of the current season. Very pretty and good colors for Megan.
