A Journey in Comfort
It started with a leaf, discovered on the sidewalk. Admiring tiny pin oak leaves scattered across the ground, this one stood out. It looked like a hug.
We've turned it into a lapel pin that is lovely for a woman and handsome for a gentleman.
The family will enjoy wearing the pin as a reminder of their loved one. Many will choose to wear it daily, while others will save it for those special occasions. The pin represents that loved one’s companionship.
Have pins on hand and be prepared to honor and console.
It is our hope, these pins will become well-known emblems, like the pink ribbon. When we see someone wearing one, we will know they have someone special on their heart. By simply asking, "Who does your pin represent?", we open a door for that person to say their loved one's name.

The truth is, the mere mention of the name brings healing, knowing they are still alive in your thoughts, too.We invite you to become a part of our national campaign on grief. Physical injury is often evidenced by a cast, crutches or a wheelchair. However, there are no exterior markers for a broken heart. Help your community understand #loveliveson, that they might #saytheirname.
