Are you wondering how you can cherish your memories and honour your loved one?
A friend of mine shared the following story last week on Facebook.
When my father passed away quite a few years ago my mother asked us if we would like to have something of his to remember him by.
I chose his dress shoes as they remind me of when he would take each of my siblings and I out to dinner separately. Wonderful conversation while dining and having him all to myself for an evening.
I keep the shoes on a beam above my head in the studio where I paint . I have only taken them down once when our son Jack needed to wear them for a play he was in ( he has since out grown them).
I took them down again last weekend and polished them up for our daughters prom date to wear. Not only did my dad get to be at his granddaughters prom but he got to dance with her as well. ❤️
Just in case you wondered. I asked her if it would be OK to share her story with you.
This was her answer: My father was a lovely man who loved and supported his four daughters in every way. I am and know he would be honoured if you shared this story.
If you have a similar story that you would like to share get in touch.
