Infant headstone?

ok, my son passed away almost a year ago and I was not able to afford to buy a headstone at the time, but now I can. Does anyone know of a good website where they seel infant headstones. I also do not know what I want it to be, if anyone has any suggestions it would be great I have never had to do this before I am a little lost.

  • I think most funeral homes would do it. My sister had one done. My deepest sympathy for ur loss. An angel is a lovely symbol to have near a childs grave to remind u of ur angel who will always be with u :)

  • first of all let me say I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my baby boy he was 20.mos. old when he passed away, I went thru the funeral home we used, they went thru Porsmouth Monument. Not sure where you are. I had his pic put on there and on the back I put his last name in between two baseball bats and on the front I had them to put his info (name, date of birth, date of death)on a scroll. And at the bottom I had them to put "Always in our hearts".

  • I had a butterfly put on my daughter's stone. Our babies are like butterflies that "fluttered" through our lives for a short time, bringing beauty, but sadness that they didn't get to stay long. I got the idea from a book called "For Hearts That Had Hopes And Dreams." It is like a baby book for the angels we didn't get to keep for long. It has places for keepsakes, journaling, and some really pretty artwork and prose. If you are interested, you can check it out at www.butterfly-crossing.com. I have one for my precious Kenzee-Kay, who was stillborn January 11, 1999, and I cherish mine!

  • Watch going through the funeral homes, they charge an arm and a leg. Go straight to a monument company out of your area so you don't have to pay a ton in shipping. Plus you want to see what they sketched out before it is written in stone. I don't have any advice on what to put on it, I think you will know that as soon as you see it. So sorry for your loss. Hope you find the perfect stone for your angel.

  • My son' headstone includes two photos one of the two of us kissing when he was two and the other his last school photo when he was fifteen.


    Below that is something personal that I wrote. You can view it on the internet in many sites. Just type in Nicholas Markowtiz or In Memory of Nicholas.

  • Saysha- I can't say that I can give you any help on this subject. God bless you and yours and good luck in your search for the perfect memorial stone. Whatever you decide, I'm sure it will be a beautiful lasting tribute to your beautiful baby.

    Nick's mom - I just watched several things on you tube about Nick and the case. As a mother, my heart just aches for you and what your family has gone through. You are all in my family's prayers. God bless you.
