LivinginaPerfectWorld.com: Lark Lennox Talks about the Importance of Personal Mementos and Dying.

Living in a Perfect World blog had a recent post from Lark Lennox that I think is appropos to share with you today– for those of us (and there are many of you out there) both friends and acquaintances who have lost loved ones this year– some as recently as a few days ago.
What’s really meaningful about this post is that Lark talks about the relationship between her parents and while they were no means wealthy people, there was some meaningful jewelry- a locket– that was traded back and forth between mother and daughter after the father had died and as the mom was becoming more gravely ill.

The import of flowers or jewelry isn’t so much in the “things” as the meaning behind them. While flowers die (and while I love flowers, my lust for them has diminished greatly), the thoughtfulness often remains if someone takes a photo or a note accompanying the flowers is kept.

More meaningful is jewelry– particularly those from a loved one. This post just brings me to tears– as I deal with the passing of my father and arrange to go through his personal artifacts to find some meaningful things besides 8 mm film to transfer to DVD.
So for all of you who have lost someone near and dear, my sympathies and prayers. For those of you enduring the process of losing someone– the same again.
For those of you who haven’t thought about this, think about it. It’s important because no matter how much you prepare for it and think you are ready to deal with it, you never are.
