mmm i still feel strongly that you should give to the family... the thoughts/ideas behind it will mean so so much to them all... and when they feel strong enough ALL whanau members can sit down and fill in all bits and pieces as a mini memorial!!


I agree. I would give it too the family. It is really a huge comfort when someone does something so beautiful....makes them really know how much their partner, Mum and friend was loved. It was from your heart and they will know that. Just a wonderful thought and such a beautiful album Trina.


Yep - nothing will make them forget how quick she passed and the fact that you were so thoughfull and spent time on the album made especially for their mum will be a comfort.
They may not be able to fill it in for a while yet but it will be there for them when they can find the strength and feel they are ready.
Georgous album you did a stunning job!


What a fabulous album. I agree with the others - do give it to the family as a token of your respect for your dear friend.
And then you can make one for yourself!!

I agree with the girls above Trina I lost a close friend in the UK some years back and had a lot of photo's of Sue that her husband daughters and siblings had never seen .I copied them and sent them to then especially for her girls so they could see how much fun Sue was and her friends.They loved them and your friends family will too it shows them how much you cared for her and that speaks volumes .


That album is stunning and I think that you should give it to the family - maybe the extended family and then they could add all the photos etc and then give it to her husband and children. Maybe their dad could write the notes to his children of his memories of their mom. It is just so sad when something like this happens and my heart goes out to them...


I don't think I could put it into words better than any other of the girls have - but I too believe it would be received well by the family.


Agree with the others. The notes for the children could easily be written by close relatives.


yes you have to give it to the family Trina it was made with a lot of love + care for her + her family........they will really love it + treasure it......maybe not now but later when the feelings aren't so raw.

Your album will be treasured by the family for ever Trina ... it's a must have token of remembrance that I am sure will be proudly displayed ... it should be given to the family with love and they will know that it has been made with love.

It's gorgeous.
