Everlasting Memories – Photo Engraved Necklace & Handmade Wooden Cremation Box Review

I was invited to try on a few things from Everlasting Memories, an online store that provides cremation urns and jewelry to remember loved ones and pets. With my beloved lion king, Bastian recently passed away, these gifts seemed fitting and timely. I’d been wondering since the day we got his ashes what in the world I would do with them.

Oh yeah, and my favorite cat in the world, Bastian, died while we were traveling. My heart was broken into a thousand pieces, everyday a stretch for sanity, living and working remotely out of a ’95 Fleetwood Flair RV… so I thought I would have time to write and the truth is, I probably had the time but the...
