“I Remember” Bracelet

The “I Remember” Bracelet sends a significant statement.  It provides the person who is grieving the ability to honor their loved ones who have died or were killed.

When another person sees their bracelet, their instinct is to ask what they might be remembering, giving the bereaved an opportunity to speak about their loved one.

“I Remember” bracelets are available for yourself or as gifts to family and friends who have experienced the death of a loved one, through any manner. Each bracelet is manufactured within the United States of America…a designation we proudly proclaim.

For your donation of $5.00 or more per bracelet, we will send along this beautiful deep purple silicone band as our gift to you with our deepest thanks for helping us in our mission.

The F4GC / Foundation for Grieving Children, Inc. is the first national public charity which raises funds for the benefit of grieving children, teens, young adults and their family members who have experienced a loved one’s death.  Your contribution helps us fund grief support services for them around our country, locates the services families need in their respective communities, creates awareness of the challenges of grieving children, and educates parents, other family members and professionals to their needs.

With over 2.5 million families experiencing a loved one’s death annually in the United States alone, if you conservatively consider at least 5 children affected by each death, whether parent, sibling, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, coach, neighbor, classmate, teammate, etc., there are approximately 12,500,000 children dealing with their own personal bereavement each year.

    The first person’s death to make a major impact on my life was Jimmy Bolin, a classmate to me, and lifelong friend to JOC. When he was killed by a drunk-driver at the age of 14, it devastated his parents, his brother Terry, and especially JOC. Before my eyes, I witnessed the utter sorrow a family and friends go through after losing a child, brother and friend. No one was ever the same again.

    At 17, I was shaken when my childhood crush was also killed by a drunk-driver. Paul was young and vibrant and I will never forget seeing him in the casket and not being able to comprehend how this was happening. I sat on the funeral home sofa, totally numb, and stared at him for hours.

    At 19, Susan O’Connor’s beloved fiance, Maurice, was suddenly diagnosed and shortly thereafter died of inoperable cancer in his mid-twenties. They had been planning their wedding. How could this be happening…again. JOC and I were grieving our second significant death before we left our teens.

    At 23, a beloved Resident Assistant at the University of Scranton, my friend Eileen Potts, died from inoperable cancer. She had volunteered with the Sisters of Charity in town. On her mass card was a picture of Mother Teresa leaning over her in her hospital bed. I remember driving to Philadelphia for her funeral and in the procession were hundreds of cars.

    During grad school exams one semester, my grandfather took a turn for the worst and died. He had suffered with diabetic complications for years.

    But just a few months before my first marriage, I mailed out my wedding invitations on a Saturday and on Tuesday my husband’s 11 year old daughter was found murdered. Angela’s death made me step back and see that my life’s work was about to change.

    Other meaningful people include my beloved grandmothers who shared their love and gave me my determination and perseverance ‘gene’ and Mrs. Bridie O’Connor, an amazing woman with an Irish brogue I adored, who served as my other “Mom” and whose frequent invitations to sit and have tea always seemed to make my world so much better. I miss them all.

    I dedicate my “I Remember” bracelet and will wear it proudly in memory of all those who have died or were killed whose lives profoundly affected mine.

    Until we meet again…
