The Love Key
August 2015 •
I bought a love Giving Key after my husband Craig Oliver passed away May 23, 2014. Shortly after his death a beautiful young couple Jennifer Hill and Josh Hiscock asked me to read during their wedding. The reading was called the Keys to Love. I was so honored. The words were beautiful and I felt my husband looking over my shoulder. I saw the Giving Key necklace in the Treasure Chest Jewelry Store in Berlin, Maryland where Craig had purchased my wedding band. I thought this key was meant to be for me. In August, Michele Parrish suddenly lost her Mom, Carolyn Smith. Michelle and I have shared many more happy occasions than sad. I was honored to watch her grow into a loving devoted wife to David and a great Mom. We decided to support each other during a lunch. As we talked I felt her pain and anguish in not being able to speak final words to her mom. You know those words of gratitude and love from a daughter. Suddenly, I felt the Giving Key I was wearing burning my neck. On the key was the word Love. I took the necklace off and gave it t her.
