When someone’s husband dies, it’s like losing our beloved ones forever. Imagine that you don’t get to see someone you love anymore, then it would not be great. Therefore, we recommend this remembrance journal for the widows to write memories and pour out their hearts, maybe 20 grief affirmation cards and wooden bank to give some comfort, also memory necklace and memorial tile as thoughtful gifts for grieving widows to add some harmonious environment to the house and so they who are gone will always be remembered, not forgotten.
