I recently met a customer that had a very touching story about loss, healing, and helping others. She told me a story about how several years ago she lost her 22 year old son. I immediately thought of my mother, and just how devastated I know she would be if something ever happened to me or either of my sisters. I felt great empathy for this strong woman who told me that each day was difficult for her still. She further explained that the reason that she was calling was because she wanted to order memorial stones for a friend of hers who's husband had recently passed away. What I found really amazing was what she told me next. One year to the date, on the anniversary of her sons passing she woke up to a simple engraved memorial stone with her sons name on it. She was so very touched, and to this day she doesn't know who did that for her. I think it is amazing that in her own healing process, she is finding some comfort in being able to help others through theirs. Memorial stones can be simple or elaborate, but the comfort they bring from a touching gesture like this is always the same. Timeless.
