How often do we encounter someone, with no idea of their story?
Christina is a beautiful woman, who's appearance belies what has been going on in her heart.
But a leaf she wears, shows someone is in her every thought.
Should anyone notice her memorial pin and comment, she has the gift of sharing how much
she loves her parents, who each passed within a year of each other.
There are those who believe you get over grief. They are wrong.
Grief changes us and forever companions us.
Talking about who lives in our heart
acknowledges death, but brings back the joy.
Christina says her MemoriaLeaf brings comfort, and is a beautiful reminder that
just as there are many colors and veins that run through each individual leaf,
my loved ones veins will always run through my heart
in a way that was uniquely their own.
