The Bad News and The Good News

The BAD news –  – Jake and Sawyer’s nameplates/headstones are officially rusting (not sure if rusting is the right word but see the picture below).  We spoke to the cemetery people and apparently the manufacturers did not put the correct finish on (or, they completely forgot the finish).  So, this is what it looks like at the moment:


Do you see the border rusting (or peeling away)?  The letters are starting to go too.  It makes me crazy.  We spoke to the nice people at the cemetery today.  They are going to fix it. The nameplates/headstones and the granite will all be replaced AGAIN.

The GOOD news – –  As part of their Fall collection, Method brought back Rice Milk & Mallow (the scent that reminds us of Sawyer).  And instead of just letting us find it in the store, they sent us all of this!

  1. Ugh I’m sorry about your issues with the nameplates and headstones. You deserve so much better. And seems like Method realizes that. Miss you, xo

  2. I too, am so sorry to hear that you are still having to deal with the nameplates situation, but grateful that the cemetery crew is replacing them again at least. And I love that the Method scent is back in your home. I will keep an eye out for it and support them for being so good to you and your family. And maybe create a little stash for you for the future? Hugs to you.

  3. How frustrating! Yet good news on Method. Sometimes it’s the little things that help perk us up.

  4. It’s so crazy that you’re still having to deal with the nameplate — maybe the universe brought back the scent to make it up to you?

  5. Dahlin, I am so sorry about the nameplates, but glad it is being taken care of. It’s nice for me to see the nameplates, and read again the beautiful words you all chose. Very very touching. Also very touching that you have a beautiful scent to remind you of Sawyer. Nice job Method. Thinking of you my friend. Love, Amy

  6. I’m sorry this keeps happening. I can’t imagine. So glad though that the method Sawyer scent is with you again. Xoxox Julie

  7. Sounds like the cemetery keeps doing a cheap job of it if they need to be replaced so often. Surely if it were done properly the first time they wouldn’t rust/peel so fast? I don’t know how it works in the US (I’m in Europe) but is there no chance you could pay a bit more for a higher quality service/materials?
