In honor of a longtime husband

I met with a lovely family that lost their father and husband.  They were from England and listening to Rita talk about her beloved husband was a delight.  It was important to complete her Sacred Embers in time to take with her to a big family event this coming weekend.  Her Sacred Embers "glows from within".  I hope that Rita's pendant brings peace to her in time because the pain she feels is still very evident.   
Rita asked that I hold back some George's ashes so that if anyone else in the family would like a Sacred Embers created I would be able to do so immediately.

I read an incredible book "Visions, Trips, and Crowded Rooms" by David Kessler. It's about deathbed visions.  Below is the book review that I wrote:
"Visions, Trips & Crowded Rooms was so wonderful! And, truly, it makes so much sense that people would come to help you along that journey to the "next place." Such a peaceful thought. The body is merely a vessel for the spirit. The spirit never dies and this book further confirmed for me that "they" are still around after that vessel wears out.

It demonstrates that it's not the medication or pain or hallucinations; it's those souls from before coming to visit and to escort. How lovely for the caregivers and family that are able to recognize that! What an incredible experience! I feel that anyone that works in the end-of-life field, as well as doctors and family that are having to deal with this should read this book. What an insight and probably filled with answers and comfort!

In reading this I cried as if each story were about my family!"

"He was my best friend"

A woman came to me with the ashes of her husband that had passed away just one year ago from cancer.  She said, "He was my best friend".  A friend of hers that is a hospice worker saw my card and brought it to her.  The moment she saw it she realized she had known me years ago and she viewed that as a sign that this is what she was looking for.  Today I presented her beautiful Sacred Embers to her.  She was thrilled and moved and I could tell it was a difficult moment for her.  I pray that her Sacred Embers brings her peace.
