I’ve got to order a headstone soon, for my husband. It’s a double plot for me to go in too, eventually, so a space will be left at the bottom for me.
This leaves me the dilemma of what to write. He was obviously a son, brother, husband, father, etc etc. However his family didn’t have much to do with him, so I’m not sure I want to include son and brother. It seems a bit mean but it’s taking up room. Also it feels false to put it in. He was however a loving husband and father and friend to all so that’s a start I guess.
What do you think? Or what have you had for your loved ones. I’ve seen some questionable ones, I don’t want grief to cloud my judgement and make me write something odd.
On a grave where my husband is buried it reads " handicapped in life, freed by death, mummy will be with you soon" ( not a child’s) I know people deal with grief differently but I’ve never seen such a statement on a headstone before.
