Heart Print

This is the necklace I always wear. It was a gift from a dear friend. Almost 5 years ago, my husband, Tom, died after a long battle of Glioblastoma (brain cancer). My friend Heidi had lost her husband to cancer also. She made me ask the funeral home to get Tom's fingerprint. Then she ordered me this beautiful necklace, with his fingerprint etched on it. The back is engraved with his name. I use to reach up and touch it so often that the rough, raised engraved grooves are starting to feel smooth to the touch. I like that I can carry a part of him with me.

I think it's great that people can have and wear memorial jewelry like this.

Wow, that is lovely! what a fantastic idea. I've never heard of that before. Nice to carry him close to your heart. Brain cancer is a dreadful disease. I lost my father to it.
