I am thinking of having a memorial/remembrance service/ceremony for my baby Angela who died 32 years ago. At the time a funeral was never mentioned and I never thought of it till much later. I don't know where Angela's remains are or how they were disposed of. My psychiatrist and the counsellor at the local pregnancy loss group have both suggested a memorial service. I am planning the service for her due date - Nov 14th. But - how can I have a memorial for a baby I never saw, held or knew? What would I be remembering? I don't want this to be a "feel sorry for me" service. I would like to honour Angela and say she was and is important, even though she died early and had a severe deformity. I would like some suggestions about what to do in the service. I am a Christian. My pastor has offered to help. I find symbols and rituals meaningful. I like music. Can you please help with any ideas?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
