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, it’s branches reaching for the heavens and the roots linking it to the earth. Just as heaven and earth are intertwined so is the life, love and memories we have shared with loved ones gone.

“Our roots are forever intertwined.
With their last breath those we have greatly loved
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

I truly believe things show up when you really need them. I came across your gifts just before my Pa’s passing and it was the perfect gift to give my Dad.
Great communication and fast responses in my time of need also…with perfect delivery timing. X

Losing a family member is tough no matter what the circumstances are, but during a pandemic it’s impossible to comprehend and understand. Not being able to say goodbye, not being able to attend the funeral, or to simply give your grieving love ones a hug, it almost seems cruel! But because of the wonderful work you do you have made it that little bit easier, I can’t thank you enough and will be forever grateful.

The website is very easy to navigate and the products are clearly explained. The ordering process is simple and customer service is exemplary. I omitted an aspect of my order, emailed them, and received an answer straight away that was above my expectations! I could not recommend this company more, for their unique and meaningful choice of products, ease of ordering, and exceptional customer service. I will never look anywhere else for my bereavement gifts. Thankyou Forever in my Heart.
