  1. Thank you Sis for sharing your journey! This is so impactful and helpful to learn how to give yourself Grace during uncertain times.

  2. My son was murdered in 2020 and unfortunately, he never met his daughter in the physical.
    A dear friend of mine purchased a holographic image of him and I have it on a table in my living room. From birth, I would take place her up close to see the 3 dimensional image of her dad. Soon after, she would crawl, walk, and finally speak to the image as if he was alive. This her connection. In conversations, she would ask where her daddy was and would always say your daddy is an angel and he is watching over you. We then made up a song that she now plays on her piano while singing and holding her mic.
    In addition, I started the Azal Benne Lockett Foundation that provides tools, resources, education and financial support for the grieving community.

  3. Wow! Thank you for this! I have keepsake boxes for both my Mom and Baby Sister. Each contains photos, a loc of hair, jewel keepsakes they loved and flower petals. I didn’t realize how important these beautiful shadow boxes were until I moved. They reminded me of all the good things. They will never be forgotten!
