http://www.olivejuicedesigns.net is dedicated to the memory of my daughter Kelly, who died on August 31, 1997, at the age of 25 just four months after a diagnosis of Melanoma.
I struggled for 11 years to figure out what I was supposed to do with her death. I felt her death was meaningless unless I could figure out a way to honor her memory.
We all wanted to record her life and the memories we have about her but I couldn’t find a book or journal like that, so I wrote a journal to do just that. Once that was complete I wanted everyone to be able to record the life of someone they loved.
We opened olivejuice Designs so anyone could have that same opportunity. With this journal anyone can be a story teller. There are prompts on each page to help. Things like: where they were born, where they grew up, schools, likes, dislikes, religous beliefs, and words they lived by is just a small example. Once completed; this journal will become a treasured book that will be passed down from generation to generation.
Other sympathy gifts include a photo scrapbook journal, memory boxes, and book marks with your choice of Swarovski crystal birthstone, photo tag, hand stamped name disc, or guardian angel theme.
Visit our olivejuice designs message board and leave a memorial with or without a picture for your loved one.
You can find cancer information and inspiring stories of hope and survival.
We hope our newly added blog will give you a diversion (which we all need). Authored by four contributors with different personalities it will be an eclectic mix of reflections.
We hope that in some small we can help to heal your grief.
Since olivejuice Designs has opened I've been moved more then ever to do what I can to help educate people about the danger of sun exposure, tanning beds, and the importance of taking an active part in your health care. (Kelly was mis-diagnosed by a dermatologist).
I'm doing this through a series of "mini web-sites". http://www.squidoo.com/melanoma-information
I hope you’ll take the time to visit that site, read the information there and forward it to everyone in your address book. It could save your life or that of someone you love.
