A friend recently passed of Breast Cancer
She was only in her early 50’s and had 3 children. She had been sick for a few years, but still managed to soldier on and cope with life, between hospital visits. Anyway unfortunately after Christmas she passed. At this time her family requested having her photo engraved in jewellery to create a memorial jewellery piece.
It had been particularly hard for all her children, but her youngest daughter was completing VCE. She was really struggling to get through with her mum being so unwell and the huge pressure of SACS and VCE exams.
We did photo engraved necklaces for her family to help them with their grief. Initially we did one for her husband and he showed other family members and they all wanted one. It was a photo engraved into jewellery to create a memorial jewellery piece that they could wear all the time. It provided them with comfort and love which is particularly needed at the time of the loss.
I recently spoke to the youngest daughter who said to me she totally adored her piece. She said she wore it daily in December as that was a particularly hard month for her, with her mum being so unwell, and the final loss of her mother. She explained to me that it provided her with the comfort and love she needed. She was also involved in Grief groups and had given many of my cards out, as many people had commented and admired her piece. Her Memorial jewellery piece was worn with love.
We were truly happy to hear her story of how our photo engraved necklace helps her regularly, but in particular times of need. The loss of a loved one is difficult for most people and just knowing the comfort it provides her and her family with was truly inspiring.
