Fabulous idea for remembering a loved one!
My boy's classmate passed away unexpectedly last month. To mark the first month of the loss, we ordered this box with a special message on top and engraved it as being from the school. The kids in the class signed the outside edges of the box in permanent marker and we placed this year's class picture in the 4X6 opening. Then the kids wrote notes to the classmate, to her mother, or just memories to go in the box. It was healing for them, and let her mother know that she was missed and loved. It was the perfect gift for a difficult commemoration.
