    • I found a french 5 franc coin in my mom’s handbag after she passed away.  It is a souvenir from the trip she took to France with my dad.  I am keeping it in the handbag for good luck and to feel closer to my mom.

    • Absolutely.  I’ve inherited lots of treasures.  Got cupboards and closets full of them.  I am a collector of many things, so I’ve picked out lots of things from my grandmothers’ things to add to collections.

      I’m always buying little treasures at estate sales.  These I usually end up selling later on.  I’ve been in the second hand business off and on in a small way for a very long time.

    • After my mom died, my stepdad gave me a large oval photograph of a young girl.

      When I asked him who it was, he told me it was my mom’s mother.  It was appaprently taken about 1904.  I had never seen it.

      It is now matted, framed and hanging above my fireplace.

    • Funny you should ask this I was speaking with several women yesterday. I truly believe that we are all given a last gift from someone who passed away. You just have to find what that is. When my Father passed away it was on a weekend that my husband was away every year. Now his gift was that I can take that weekend and enjoy thinking of the time spend with my Dad without feeling guilty. My friend pass away and here last gift was that 7 women get together once a year for a Girls weekend with out her we would have never done this and none of us knew each other before. We now have a wonderful weekend once a year for the passed 10 years, 7 were with her,  Thanks to my friend Janet.
