    Evermore glass

    There is a very kind and talented lady in St Ives who makes glass beads with cremation ashes.

    I saw a similar thing when a friend's dad died. There were four children, each spoke about a different facet of their dad's life and as they returned to their seat, each stood at the foot of the coffin and said a few words of farewell. Very moving.


    Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.

    It is such a poignant thing to do for someone...the eulogy I mean. On the subject of the ashes...I had a locket with a photo of my husband and a lock of hair...and it was attached to my watch strap...short story, I lost it. Horrible. I like the idea of the engraved ring, if you want to wear something, that would be much more secure. I'm seriously considering a tattoo, for a very precious granddaughter...but I am SO not a typical person for that, so I'm still thinking.
