  •  i still can't believe they just took it off her (13+ / 0-)

    and didn't even think to give it to me or ask me if I wanted it.

    i do have another rosary now, but it never occurred to me to intentionally bless it with my mother's memory.  I think I will find a way to do that.  thanks Quilldriver.

    •  My mother had on a necklace that (10+ / 0-)

      I gave her that she never ever took off.   She requested for me to remove it at the viewing and keep it.  I remember the tears that rolled down my face as I took the golden necklace that said #1Mom  from around her lifeless, cold body and yet the necklace brought warmth to my hard.  It was almost as if she knew the taking of the necklace that now was mine to wear would be our last communication between Mother and Daughter.     It was not hooked but just laid around her neck.  I held it and now I keep it and wear it .  A token that went from a Jewlery store to a Christmas box to a Mother back to the daughter.   It is still hard sometimes to wear, then I think of how much it connects us.  I understand about the rosary.
