My Fiance have had in pretty rough over the course of our relationship. My cousins husband and * month old baby died in a house fire in feb. of 09′ – I was the godmother to the baby and good friends with her husband before they met. Then in the same month I lost my grandfather who had practically raised me and it happened very quickly. Later that summer I lost my great grandfather who had mild alziehmers. My fi’s mother was a godsend to me. She loved me instantly as I did her. We found out we were having our first child pretty early in our relationship. We found out on his mothers Bday. She said it was the best bday present she could have asked for. His mother had cancer before i met her. But when we met it had been in remission for a little over a year. We found out about a week after her bday that the cancer was back and it was wrapped around her spine at the base of her brain and it was in her brain. We were horrified. The doctors gave her 3 months to live. $ months later we found out we were having a little girl. His mother told his cousin after we got off the phone that ” thats all i wanted to know”. The next morning she pasted away. We had been staying with her for a few months and it was the first time I went to class in four days. I rushed home from college but was too late. I miss my mother in law very much. We had a rare relationship not many women do. I want to incorperate her memory as well as our other lost ones in the wedding as much as possible. Anyone have ideas. we will have their pictures on a grand piano with a candle we’ll light in their memory. And i will have a white calla lily laid on the piano next to her picture since we named our daughter lilly and all our flowers are calla lilies, Anyone have any other ideas?
