Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
I know you're under a lot of stress right now and I'm sorry about your mother!. Just think about her for a few days!. Look at some old photo albums, listen to some of her favorite music!. What do you think of when you see her in a picture or think about her!?
Or, think of a sweet saying she always said!. That may be helpful too!.

"name here"
mother, (etc- all the things she was to you)!.
You will remain in our hearts for as long as we live!.

I hope this helps!.

I wouldn't put too much!. The lettering is very expensive (it cost me over £200 to have my Dad's name added to Mum's stone 11 years ago) and quite honestly it is more tasteful to just have basic facts, name, date of death, age, maybe name of residence or "of this parish", and Mum to you if that brings comfort!.
We never stop missing our Mums!. Mine died when I was 27!. It doesn't matter how old you are, the loss is so painful, and I am sure you miss her guidance through your teenage years!. It leaves a void that nothing can fill!. You don't need fancy words on a gravestone to be able to remember her with love!. Your memories will always be with you, and I am sure your Mum would be pleased that you thought so highly of her!.
But, you know, she wouldn't want you to stay so unhappy!. Mums are like that!. Have you had any bereavement counselling!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Go in person to pick out and order the stone!. The people there will help you and there are many samples of what you can put on there!. Good luck

A question tho, why would anyone put this on a 12 year old!? At 16 you are still too young to have to deal with matters like this!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
