Care Package—looking for help!

AnnieChance

So following up on my friend who just lost her sister. She lives very far away from me, so I came up with the idea of sending my friend a care package to comfort her until she comes back around for the holidays. I decided to put in a few things for her, like a rosary I picked up on a recent trip, a picture frame with a picture of her and her sister, some food (she emailed me recently and said she literally can't even eat) and maybe some candles.

I wanted to see if anyone out there had any other ideas of things to include in the care package. I'm taking suggestions.

Thanks!

The touchstone idea is a good one. When I lost my only child, I had one sent to me that simply said "hope". I carry it with me everyday......even after 5 years.

This is a wonderful gesture! Sorry I'm late to the game here, but my suggestion would be to include some hot chocolate with a nice mug and a journal where she can record her thoughts. There's nothing like being able to curl with with a mug of hot chocolate and pour your thoughts into a journal. It's very soothing and cleansing! I hope your friend is doing well and has made it through the holidays!

Maybe a poem that you can copy onto a nice sheet of paper?
