 I received such beautiful birthday cards from so many people.  The one's from my daughter, son, grand daughter, and 2 forever friends were so special they made me cry.

Marc & Aric attended church with us, which was a special gift to me, and then Marc took us all out to eat.  During lunch he said, "Oh, Mom I've got a little something and a card for you at the house." 
 Here is my little something !!!!  This beautiful sterling silver heart with a tear drop, in a beautiful jewel box with the poem.

Presented to me by my youngest son, Marc, for my 74th Birthday, December 25, 2011, 7months and 6 days after Suzette going to Heaven on May 19th at 11:30 pm.

The Reunion Heart
Since Heaven has become your home
I sometimes feel I’m so alone;
And though we now are far apart
You hold a big piece of my heart.

I never knew how much I’d grieve
When it was time for you to leave,
Or just how much my heart would ache
From that one fragment you would take.

God let’s this tender hole remain
Reminding me we’ll meet again,
And one day all the pain will cease
When He restores this missing piece.
He’ll turn to joy my every tear,
And when I wear this necklace near
It will become my simple way
To treasure our Reunion Day.

 As if that wasn't enough!!!!  You open the locket and inside, where the tear is on the outside is a little piece of "missing" heart.
Some things are beyond priceless----
My Suzette
This necklace
My thoughtful, loving son, Marc who gave it to me
My Jesus who paid the price
Heaven, with our Triune God, where she waits for us.

I am a mother most blessed!!!!!!!

Mark is obviously like you in his care and thoughtfulness. What a beautiful necklace, even without that poem.

Could it be any more beautiful? I don't think so. What a sweet heart of a son you have.
