    We give several items to families but two in particular seem to be appreciated: 

    1. Handprint molds in a frame 
    2. Ceramic heart buried with patient but smaller hearts which fit inside the other heart for loved ones to carry in their pocket.

    Dear Colleagues in EOL care,

    We are looking to improve the quality of the memory items we give to families upon the impending or actual death of their child.  Would some of you be willing to share what items you give to families either as mementos or grief support resources?  (Memory boxes, photo albums, frames, etc.)  The more specific you can be the better (such as product descriptions or where you order them from), but I would welcome any suggestions.  Thank you!
