When we lose someone close to us, it can help to have mementos of the times we spent together. Do you have a cherished keepsake of your loved one? What is it, and what does it mean to you?

My dad died this Easter Eve. I was the only family that his wife'd let in the (HER) house 2 see him. I'll never 4get those precious last few hrs I spent w/ him, doing anything in my power 2 make him just a little more comfortable, 2 lessen his pain @ that point. I was sang 2 him, raised/ lowered his bed, put cold compresses on his head. He had prostate & bone cancer for almost 3yrs, yet the ONLY effective pain med (Morphine) stayed in the fridge til that last hour, when he KNEW I'd make sure he got it no matter what his insane wife (& her 'religious beliefs') said 2 the contrary! the most sCRITICAL, MEANINGFUL, PAINFUL time in my Dad's life- & she isolated him from ALL OF US (2 be continued...)

I have a beautiful heart pendant that was given to me by my mom that hangs from my rearview mirror.  I live so far away from the rest of my family and when my grandmother passed I was able to go home and say goodbye but because we didn't know how long she had wasn't able to stay until she passed away and then for the services.  I was exceptionally close to her and to this day miss her dearly.  The heart pendant holds some of her and my grandfathers ashes and its just nice to know they are always with me.  For certain moments, occasions my kids have borrowed and brought with them to feel them close and it's personal.  Love it and highly recommend!  Will attach the link.  heart cremation pendants
