Strength in Love and Loss

This key was given to me when I needed it the most. It was a gift I received from the strongest woman I know. That month had been a roller coaster of emotions we were all feeling. Most of us felt lost, angry and like there was a huge piece missing.

On September 7th 2013, we lost a beautiful minded old soul named Jared. He was such a big part of our lives. His beautiful mother gave me this necklace at a perfect time. Within this key is the word "strength." She lost a son and I lost my best friend and boyfriend. I wear this everywhere I go. Anytime I feel empty I look down and know he wouldn't want me to be upset that he would want me to smile. This necklace gives me strength in any time of need. And I cannot thank her enough for passing this along to me.

  • I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s a very difficult time in life when things happen like this. Strength is the hardest thing to find in tragity. I would like to talk with you more! Hopefully I can help you through your difficult time. I find it comforting to talk about it sometimes with people who know loss. You can also add me on Facebook it’s under Jessica Webb

  • Jessica, i’d read about the giving keys a few weeks ago and thought the idea behind it was beautiful. my father passed away a few days ago and i am absolutely devastated and fearful of the future. I needed words of encouragement in a time of despair when suddenly these keys came to mind and then I came across your story. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope that time has made life a bit better for you. i also need strenght during this difficult time and am considering getting a key to wear as a reminder. people tell me i need to be strong but that hasnt been helping very much. maybe having the word physically near me will make a difference. again, i am sorry for your loss.

    Em on
