WG, I think that's a good possibility. It's not uncommon for dying people to mention that a dead mom or husband was there, etc. A mother wrote on a forum for grieving pet owners that her little girl was dying of leukemia and suddenly sat up in bed, her face brightened and she cried out, "Fluffy!" (the name of her cat who had died) and then fell back and passed away with a smile on her face. Science might tell us that these are hallucinations, but I believe that spirits live on and may indeed escort dying loved ones to "the other side."
WG, is that a type of container?
Okay so I am thinking my mummy was right, I am a deranged little girl! I have some of my mummy in a mini urn that I wear on a chain, my friends at work even say Hi to me and my mummy..... lol. I talk to her and sometimes get mad at her but we all need that someplace to put our grief and visit loved ones that have passed on, according to people that specialize in grief. My mummies ashes went home back to england and I wanted some of her here.
WG, thanks for the description of the locket.
There is also a place called Life Gem (lifegem.com). They take a small amopunt of the vremains and use a carbon process to form it into a gemstone that can be set in a pendant or ring.
I'm glad to see that worriedgirl is still posting here and will be here to help others through the process.
Blessings to all
