About Forever In My Heart
My family and I have experienced grief ourselves, and know how painful it can be. We lost our beautiful boy, James, on the 16th of January 2011. James was only 10 years old when he left us, his courageous battle with cancer spanning 8 years. He was an inspiration to all who knew him.
James will be forever in our hearts.
Losing James was the beginning of another journey for me. I have cried, laughed at wonderful memories and cried many times more. It was after James’s passing that I was wanting to find special mementos, items that would be appropriate to his memory and my already treasured keepsakes. This search proved difficult and became the inspiration for me to begin to create Forever In My Heart.
I have since collected and made many special keepsakes and I continue to do so even now. I wear my special heart keepsake memorial pendant with his ashes around my neck, so my precious James is close to me. I am making a memory album, which will sit on our coffee table, for our family, friends and visitors to look through, to cherish our wonderful memories. I have candles, just for James, to light when we reach an anniversary or to light when I feel a little down. Everyone experiences and copes with this pain differently. The grieving process is so personal. We all need to find our own way of coping, finding comfort and treasuring the memories for the special someone we have lost.
My hope, through this website, is to give a selection of keepsakes to treasure, to comfort through grief, not just initially, but for all of the first experiences without a loved one in the weeks, months, and years that follow.
The Tree of Life
Rich in meaning, it is a cherished reminder symbolising life itself,
“Our roots are forever intertwined.
With their last
do not say good-bye for love is timeless.
Instead, they leave us with a solemn promise
when they are finally at rest,
they will continue to be present to us
whenever they are called upon.
Let us not grieve, beyond letting go
for in the Tree of Life their roots and ours
are forever intertwined.”
What Customers Are Saying
Wonderful and easy to see what each product included. The comfort box arrived so quickly, that I couldn’t believe it. It was wrapped beautifully and left my sister feeling really good. Thank you for the care and effort you put in – it truly does make a difference to people during difficult times.
Just the right touch in a difficult time. The family was so grateful to receiving something so sentimental and everlasting. A great alternative to flowers. My experience was great! Efficient and very friendly service even when I made an error. The recipient was very happy.
Thank you Kathy. Beautiful site and such thoughtful packages you have. Really love the alternatives you provide to sending flowers. Especially at this time when funerals are hard to get to and I think people appreciate something a little more personal, special and perpetual than cut flowers. Will be sure to use your business again if required in future, thank you.
