Maxie's Daddy designed a lovely memorial for your beautiful boy. It is soul crushing that this is something that you ever had to do. I am so, so sorry. Maxie's smile WILL shine always. That smile lit up a 10 mile radius (at minimum) and the memory of it never fails to bring a smile to my face. He will always be in my heart, always. I love you all very much. xo

It shatters my heart that Maxie has a gravestone instead of lighting up this world. I am sorry with all of my soul. Ted designed a beautiful memorial for his beautiful boy and you both honor his memory everyday with your love and truthfulness and devotion. I love Maxie and you guys and always will.

Thanks for sharing this Abby. It's completely and totally unfair and incomprehensible that Ted had to design this but he did an amazing job and the words are so true. Max will always be in my heart. Love to you all!

I thought about you all day...the headstone is beautiful. I love the dancing monkeys. I'm sickened everyday that we even have to deal with death and headstones and the suffocating grief. I love you Abs!!

Sobering - it makes it real some how - not that it isn't real anyway, but ... you probably know what I mean. Some day, when you're up to, I would like to know if it makes you feel better. People keep telling me that having a headstone will. I don't believe them. X x

I am sure it won't surprise you to hear that it is complex. It made things even more real for me (is that even possible?) and therefore it was really, really hard. BUT - for Maxie - I am glad we did it. He deserved to have a marker that was made uniquely for him with love.

I am so, so sad and sorry that the words Max and headstone exist in the same sentence. I can only imagine how agonizing it was for Ted to design a memorial for his baby. He did a beautiful job.

It's just beautiful. Such a love-filled memorial for your sweet baby boy.
