Matthew and Marley

Made a custom necklace and tags for two young people killed during gang violence in Charleston SC: Matthew and Marley. The dates of their death is on the back of tag. I added a garnet gemstone and a moonstone gemstone to the end of the chain for blood shed and tears shed. I cannot imagine losing my own children to such senselessness.

Whenever I talk to family and make tags like these I just thank God for my good fortune and my healthy family. No news is good news. I remind myself to be thankful each day ~ for the day I had and hopefully the day to follow. We are always making busy plans taking for granted that tomorrow will be there.
