One of my favorite quotes about love is by Nicholas Spark’s “A Walk to Remember.”
They are the words that comfort me every time I think of my mom whom I lost 8 years ago and my dad whom I lost 2 years ago…
Acceptance did not come easily to me. There is no single day that I don’t think about them, and wish that I could say these three words that I long to say to them personally – I love you.
There is no single day that I cherish the fact that they have lived their lives well and have touched other people’s lives in special ways I only came to know from friends who attended their funerals.
That is why I have always felt that I am still connected to them in a way, and that remembering them is a special way of recognizing their lives well lived.
And although those special moments will never happen again, they stay forever in my memory, connecting me to them.
What is the perfect way to remember your departed loved ones?
Remembering how my parents loved – loved each other, loved us, loved their family, loved their friends, loved their home, their daily walks and daily talks make me remember them by vowing to love and show love to everyone every single day.
Remembering how they were with friends and family – anecdotes and stories that make me smile, laugh, cry – eases my grief. Sharing and listening to the stories of my dad and mom’s friends, laughing and crying with them, made me realize that people loved them and they shared my grief. I am not alone.
Having an item that reminds me of my dad and mom also helped in remembering them. I have always kept one of my dad’s shirt and turned it into a pillow case and I still use my mom’s favorite earrings.
I am also planning to get these from PerfectMemorials.com’s Premium Jewelry Series.
This jewelry series is designed to hold a small portion of your loved ones’ ashes or dried ceremonial flowers.
I have kept some of the dried ceremonial flowers and I intend to put them on one of the beautiful teardrop or heart cremation jewelry.
That way I would have part of my parents close to my heart.
