Brawn's marker arrived in the mail today. It is a dog angel and the plaque reads "Our buddy Brawn Jan. 09, 2009".

I do not think I'm going to tell hubby for a few days. He is in so much physical pain right now he doesn't need extra emotional pain. I'm sure Brawn wouldn't mind. If he were here right now he'd be sitting next to the bed with his head resting on hubby's arm.

That's a good idea Ravenlost...wait til he feels better. With the painkillers he is on you probably don't want to mess with his head too much. He needs rest.

It wouldn't surprise me if Brawn's spirit is there with your hubby right now.

It IS hard to deal with. It took me a long time to be able to look at Toby's marker that my Dad made for the grave. I can't see any harm in waiting until your DH is feeling better and stronger, before you put it in place. Maybe just tuck it away somewhere, for now.

Hubby and I were watching the moon come up the other night and I told him that every time I see a full moon I will think it's Brawn's big goofy white face looking down on us.

There was a full moon the day Brawn was killed. It was quite a lunar event for 2009...the moon looked huge and it helped us get Brawn home that night.
