Justin commented on We are filled with oceans filled with light and reminded us of his beautiful cat, Sophie :)

This is a lovely idea, Dianne, and so thoughtful!

I remember when our ginger and white cat, Sophie, died a number of years ago, I didn’t want our family to forget her, so we created a memory jar. We bought a pretty big one, about her size, and each member of the family wrote their favourite memories on coloured cards and placed them inside the jar. I put a photo of her in there too, one of her soaking up the sunshine in the garden near a Bottlebrush and a Crepe Myrtle, so peaceful and content, a red collar around her neck with a gold nameplate bearing the sweet, simple name Sophie. The vet’s secretary had sent us a beautifully written card about our love for Sophie and that went in too. The jar now sits on our bookshelf with other family mementos and so in a way, she’s always with us wherever we go. Memories intact.
