A grave marker for Sadie

Cliff's sister, Rena, bought this last Saturday; now Sadie's grave has a marker.  Iris and I stop by there each morning to say hello to her.  You can see the iris plants behind my new dog... those are the plants that gave her a name:  When I was digging Sadie's grave, I looked up and saw the iris plants, and knew my next dog would be named Iris.  As I told my friend Joanna, perhaps Sadie is the one who suggested this.  


I know, that's silly.  Just humor me.  


Rena suggested that we take it next time we go to Versailles and have their cousin engrave Sadie's name on the stone.  He's put the names on many of the headstones at the local cemetery down there.

I think Sadie would be very happy that you have Iris and that you saved another life -- just like you did hers. :)

Very nice!! Iris seems to understand.

I agree with Astaryth. Maybe if you have her name put on it you could also put the date. Cute stone. Helen

How wonderful that marker is and so very thoughtful too. Your Iris will be a constant reminder of Sadie but the stone is nice too.

I think thats wonderful. I will more than likely do something to this fashion when my dog T-bone passes. He's 10 1/2 years old and has been the best dog i've ever had. I'll miss him sorely when he goes..
