 in response to maureenmo...   Maureen I don't knowof any place that will give free markers.I want you to know my story.I lost 2 baby boys from premature delivery.I lived in Nashville TN at the time.Woodlawn cemetary had a program to bury them for free but the markers had to be bought.Both my boys are buried in the same grave.We never had the money to pay for the marker.My marker was $2,300.Years later my husband had an afair and let me for another woman.After the divorce I knew that I would be leaveing the state and move to my home state of South Carolina.I could not leave Nashville until I had my babies grave marked.I loved them and they deserved to be marked.I made a deal with Woodlawn.I paid $23.00/month until the markers were paid for then they laid the marker down.I moved to SC a few months later.I being a single mother paid for that marker myself.My ex-husband did not want anything to do with it.He said let the dead bury the dead.Besides raising my liveing 2 children to adulthood being a single mother my greatest accomplisment was paying for the marker for my 2 dead sons.I sacrificed for them.Yes,It took a total of 25 years to get them marked but I did it.In the mean time I marked their grave with flowers.When I went to Woodlawn and paid that last payment the mortorary personell clapped their hands stood up and gave me praise for doing what I did.They said that most people who lost babies and buried there never paid off a marker.Good luck in your search but in the mean time see if your mortorary will let you set up a payment plan like I did.

If he is in hospice, they would  be the first place to ask. Other places to consider are social services, catholic charities, red cross, st vincent de paul, local churches,etc..

I did find one organization @ 150 miles from you Missouri end of life community alliance

they may be more helpful than I.

Does anyone know of any places that can help us get a marker for our baby? Our baby passed away in December from SIDS and we need help with a marker. I live in Missouri. They want 1700 for a marker.
