So a simple meal and cake with my children's grand-parents is what I settled on. But some family members decided that they didn't want to have anything to do with it and refused to come. I was very hurt by their attitude and reaction. My children also didn't understand. I had to fight with anger and bitterness so that this day could remain what it was, a celebration. I realized that I couldn't force anyone to see things as I did, even if to me it is obvious to me that every life has value and there is nothing wrong in remembering and honoring a short life that never got the chance to be celebrated.
