After my Dad passed away and I started thinking and I thought about ways to be able to keep just a little bit of Dad’s ashes. He wants his ashes spread in the Florida Keys and I hope to be able to go down there soon. I wanted to be able to go down there before the end of this year, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to swing it. Oh, I digress….
Anyway, I found that you could order necklaces. I asked my brothers if they wanted one and if so to pick one out and let me know. So they did. I went back and forth about which one to get and finally decided on one.
I also had my mom pick one out. I mean my parents were divorced for over 30 years, but she stepped up in the last month of Dad’s life. She brought him a Thanksgiving meal as well as several other meals. She also ran other errands for him since he quit driving after the diagnosis. She totally deserved to be able to have a ‘little bottle of memories’ to keep close to her heart and have something to hold on to when she’s missing him most.
