A Sweet Lady....

 This is Nettie. I just met her at the church bazaar. She was selling used books. She was so friendly and sweet. We were talking , and she told me a story of her necklace. This little gold  circular shape , is her husband's thumbprint. When he passed away, she got his print from the armed service department, that was on file...somewhere. I am still in awe of that. She had it made into a necklace. On the back it says" My Love"
Nettie said her husband was the love of her life and she misses him so much.  I just had to take her picture. I did ask if I could post it and tell this story.  xo

  10. Susie,
    That is a beautiful story. What a creative idea to make a necklace like that. It must keep him close to her. Nettie is a sweet lady, you are right.
