I received the Willow Tree Forget-Me-Not on March 23rd, 2017 at a gala that I attended. A very dear friend of mine gave me the beautiful figurine, and one week later, on March 30th, I had her blessed by another dear friend. I really love my Forget-Me-Not figurine that I received, and I have her on my night table so she is always very close to me. This figurine is so very precious to me, and equally so very special to me; because of the meaning, and significance behind the thoughtfulness of my very dear friend who gave her to me. I love this figurine, and my very dear friend, so very much. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
My Crew Leader Gabriella from my work place sent this to me along with a vase full of beautiful fresh flowers, my beautiful loving sister has passed away, and has gone on to Heaven to be with MOM and DAD, and the LORD JESUS CHRIST. And now she is in peace, where she will always be taken care of.
When I was 15 I lost my only brother. As you can imagine suddenly growing up as an only child was hard. Now I'm a grown woman and mother to 5 beautiful children. As a family we have always spoken of Alan, with lots of love. Last year my very thoughtful children got me this piece for my birthday in memory of Alan. They chose this as I have a tattoo with a forget me not flower and brother around it. Needless to say I was in tears when I opened my gift; it means so very much to me, I don't know what inspired the person to make this piece but I would like to thank them so very much, as every time I look at it I feel a little bit of Alan is with me. Thank you Jo x
I received my figurine as a 50th birthday present from my nephew. I hadn't heard of Willow Tree before, but the piece is absolutely beautiful and a very poignant gift as my mum is in the late stages of Alzheimer's Disease. The Forget-me-not is the emblem of the Alzheimer's Society and holds a very special place in the hearts of our family. As I look at the figurine now I feel overwhelmed with the thoughts and feelings it provokes.
I bought this piece today for several reasons - thinking of my mother-in-law who has memory problems, remembering my late parents and because I work for Alzheimer Scotland, where the forget-me-not flower is used for pin badges to remind people that we should never forget. I have displayed the piece on my window sill at work.
I bought this for my 11 year old daughter to give to her best friend (also 11) as a sympathy gift for the loss of her mother. I had a hard time finding the right thing, and I think this covers it. She just wanted her best friend to know she was thinking of her.
I have had a very dear friend called Joanne. Joanne and I met when I started work 32 years ago and we struck up a great friendship. She had a very bubbly fun personality, had a lot of friends, and would cycle everywhere. Just before this Easter (27 March) she was knocked off her bike and killed. Today I bought one of the Willow figurines "Forget-Me-Not" in memory of Jo.
It's inpiring for Susan to hear how you feel about your Willow Tree piece. Your personal interpretation is so meaningful... thank you for taking the time to share it.
