As of March 1, 2012 we have stopped this service. My sister is moving from Hawaii and no longer available to write names for us. Thank you to all of you who have let us do this for you. I wish you gentle and peaceful days. ALOHA!

In 2002 my son Gabriel was stillborn. At times it seems he was just a figment of my imagination. I am always looking to find ways to remember him and it is a comfort to see his name in print as another verification that he DID exist.

My sister wrote his name in the sand of a beach close to her home on the North Shore of Hawaii. It is a beach set aside as a ‘quiet place of reflection’. I love how the photo turned out- and it seems so suitable to me that it is not a permanent thing, but rather, just like Gabriel, it is here for just a minute and then gone. But for a brief moment, the world is a little different because of him.

  1. Thanks for posting this :) Baby Eugene's due date was 6-26-09...Missing you...

    Baby Eugene

    My tummy was growing I had all the signs
    Plans were being made for you to enter the world
    I was excited to be your mommy and to hold you
    Then suddenly my world stopped
    To grieve the loss of you

    I never got to hear your heartbeat
    I never got to see you grow
    I never got to hold your hand
    I never got to see your face

    My sweet baby,
    Let Grandpa hold you while you wait
    You will not be forgotten . . .
