I wanted to do a project with the widows in a grief group I attend. I stated to look for ideas on Pinterest for a memory bracelet. Much to my surprise there were many ideas for pets but not people. I did find one image about a memory bracelet however it did not link back to the original. So, I set out to adapt my own version.

Please find attached PDF and print it off. I decided to call mine “My Loved One’s Memory Bracelet” with option for a Husband, Father, Wife or Mother.

Please fill free to share this idea with your family and friends.
