Laura Beck gave birth to her first child Truman back in August… but he died just three days later. As hard as it was to cope with the loss, it didn’t help that so many of the people around her were using the phrase “angel baby,” or telling her he was in a “better place,” or that it was all part of “God’s plan.”
As all of us who have dealt with the death of a loved one know it’s hard for other people to talk about it without bringing religion or supernatural thinking into the conversation.
Laura hopes to turn these into remembrance cards or calendars very soon. She wants people to know “that there are non-religious people out here that know how to make funerals and memorials special without involving God.”
And, on a related note, if you’re dealing with someone’s death right now, there’s a fantastic non-religious page to talk to other people about your loss at Grief Beyond Belief.
