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
I wanted something different to flowers, that are beautiful, but only for a short time. These gifts are forever and I love the thought of that.
Wow, these items are beautiful. My family loved them all. I would recommend these products as a comfort box. Well done. Awesome customer service and Kathy was brilliant with keeping me updated on my order and ensured the product was sent to a different shipping address. As I was flying out to NZ I was rapped when my items arrived unexpectedly earlier for me to take and this was a weight off my shoulders. Thank you for making this easier in a time of sadness.
Perfect option instead of flowers. This is one of the best customer service experiences I have had. I have used this website twice now and both times the level of service exceeded my expectations. I had missed something off my first order and it was fixed immediately. The delivery timeframe was extremely fast. I highly recommend.
