Words and Actions


Actions speak louder than words.

When you say it, let your actions show it.



A Sense of Presence


After the loss of a loved one, there is a sense of their presence with a familiar possession, place or article of clothing. You smile, recalling the memories of a time, a place; a moment when life was full of their presence.

Memories are important to preserve. Having a sense of presence of a departed loved one is essential to those memories.

A Memory Bear, made from your loved one’s favorite clothing, is a personal reminder that you can have “to hold and hug.”
May your memories linger always.

A New Year

2019, a new year to reflect on yesterday and look forward to tomorrow, while making the best of each today. May your new year be blessed .

An Old Saying

Life is a good place to be with our husbands or wives and children around us. We go day to day enjoying their presence. When our eyes open each morning, we know they will be there. Our life is good and complete with them in it.

There is an old saying, “You don’t miss the water ‘til the well runs dry.” I have heard this saying since I was a little girl. It is as a wife and mother that I truly understand what it means when the well runs dry.

For some of us, a husband, wife, or child is missing from our presence. Our days are less without them. The water is gone…the well has run dry.

No matter how much attention you pay to a loved one, when they are no longer here you think of how you could have given them more of your time. Maybe you could have, maybe you couldn’t. All you can do is the best you can. Appreciate your water while you have it…then let the memories fill your well.

The Empty Chair


They gather together for meals, especially during the holidays. They do this year after year…then came that gathering…that holiday meal with the empty chair at the table. Someone had died or sadder yet, someone had chosen not to be there.

Appreciate life and each other as if there will not be another time to do so.
