My Serenity Garden

Photo Description
After my 30 year old son and his 29 year old wife died a week apart, I felt like I was shrouded in death. The next spring, I decided to surround myself with life. It took two years to convert my barren back yard into this garden; complete with waterfall, koi pond, pergola, patio, and deck. This garden became my serenity and helped heal my broken heart. The child is my son's daughter, who I raised. She too, found solace in our garden.

What a beautiful way to memorialize your son and daughter-in-law and for you and your granddaughter to find peace until you're all together again.

What a beautiful garden I don't know what else to say, but I am very sorry for both of your losses,I hope that you and your grandchild will find comfort and happiness there! I Lost my nephew when he was young also and was looking for ideas for his parents to memoralize him with the time they had together rather than what could been.I truly believe that we are all going to be together anyway.
