My mother died recently and my sister and I have been distributing a few “bits” to friends and family.
Months ago my sister said mum wanted a pearl choker to go to her sister in law. She particularly wanted this as it had been the borrowed element when she married her brother. Mum felt she should have it as it was part of her wedding outfit. They are very nice and one of the few pieces of “real” jewellery she had.
Well, my aunt has said no thanks. She doesn’t really like pearls and only borrowed it as it went with her outfit.
We’re a bit shocked to be honest. Not that she doesn’t like pearls, that’s her choice, but to turn down a gift!
I’ve sent jewellery to my children from their gran. I don’t expect they will ever wear it, it’s a keepsake.
It just seems so callous. What do you all think.

Those were the Days! I copied this from a recent Probus mag. ( author unknown) So very true.
