A father’s love— #griefheart number 273

A father’s love

Randy, my husband, spotted this one. It’s a heart made of stainless steel so it looked more like a “guy” heart if there is such a thing. He wanted a picture of it, so it’s only fitting that he own this one. The heart says, “Through thick and thin, we remain one.”

We saw it in Los Angeles while visiting Richard over the holidays. We toasted Charles. Missed him. Told stories about him.

What is the #griefheart project?

I explain my #griefheart project here. Contact me if you want to honor and remember your loved one who died by suicide or from addiction.

See all #griefhearts so far on pinterest or on this blog by #griefheart category.

  1. Definitely meant for your husband. Sometimes things appear when we least expect them and we know they are meant for us.
