Renee and her husband, Rich, lost their son, Richie, in February when he was stillborn at almost 35 weeks. Through Renee, I have become familiar with a wonderful organization called Mamie’s Poppy Plates.

Mamie's Poppy Plates is a donation supported non-profit, whose mission is to provide tangible mementos to families who suffer stillbirth or infant death. The keepsake plates are given to affected families at no charge. They are customized with the baby's footprints, name, and birth information. Mamie’s Poppy Plates exists not to fill the impossible void of loss, but to serve as a timeless reminder of a baby's brief yet profound life.

This is Richie’s plate that was given to Rich and Renee from Mamie’s Poppy Plates.
