Loss of Child
October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day
The loss of a child is one of life's most difficult experiences. It is not what we expect when we have children. Friends and relatives give their support and sympathies, but there is a part of your heart this is missing.
Remembering the joys, the challenges, the dreams, the plans remind you of that child. Ever a part of you, the child may no longer be with you, but you can still have a part that was unique to the child - the fingerprint. You may have cleaned off many of those little prints from windows or walls. Capture a print and place it on a special keepsake you select. Perhaps, if there is a special name in the child's own hand, include that in creating this keepsake of your precious child.
Resources for helping with the loss of your child:
Creating a memorial jewelry keepsake can be an important part of the grieving process. Our custom designed fingerprint keepsakes include cremation ash pendants, lockets, footprint jewelry, thumbprint jewelry and much more. Each piece is custom made with the fingerprint, thumbprint, child handprint or baby footprint as the focal point of the keepsake. Engraving is included and the handwriting of the child can be added to make it even more memorable. All our custom fine fingerprint jewelry keepsakes are made from solid cast sterling silver, 14k and 18k yellow, white, rose and green gold. Platinum is available upon request.
Capture the fingerprint with an ink pad and white paper. Most funeral homes and mortuaries can take the fingerprints for you. Please contact us if you are in need of assistance to capture the fingerprints of your child.
Please send your high resolution scan of the prints or handwriting here. PDF or 1200x1200dpi JPG works best. HIGHTAIL You can also send your prints by mail to: Imprint On My Heart, Richards & West, 501 West Commercial Street, East Rochester, NY 14445.
