    Smile Jo Jo back home in time for christmas!

    YAY! Jo Jo's ashes came back today! I was so worried about her not being home in time for christmas, as I was so determined she would make christmas alive. At least she is home now where she belongs.

    She is in a lovely well made wooden casket, with a gold name plaque.



    I have made a space for her on a shelf next to where her cage used to be, and placed her photo beside the casket. I am thinking about a better way to present this little Jo Jo memorial, so any suggestions are welcome. Here is how it is at the moment (excuse the dusty shelf!).

    Oh, that's so beautiful!

    Maybe you could put her favourite toy there with it? When my dog died, I made a paper rose, and put it through her collar, which sits at the bottom of her urn. SUch a good picture of her too...

    Oh WHAH! That's a beautiful display. I agree.. maybe her little toy or a sprig of millet with a ribbon tied around it (white or blue) to match Jo Jo's coloring.

    What a sweet tribute to Jo Jo.

    That's beautiful and very touching to see her displayed like that. Maybe you could have someone make you a frame that is matched in detail to the urn/box/casket that holds her ashes with her name engraved in the frame as well at the top. At the bottom of the frame you could have engraved in it the character traits she was so well known for that you just absolutely adored about her. And maybe do a "double" frame kind of like a plaque so that one side is her picture with the engravings and the other side displays a tribute to her of your spoken thoughts about her a poem from the forum here that you feel would be most fitting or appropriate about her.

    Those are great ideas about putting up her favourite toys, and about the double frame with a photo and words. I am going to get a more suitable frame. I was also planning on lighting the area somehow.

    I think a small candle will be lighting that area tonight.

    That is so lovely I'm so happy you got the ashes in time. It's a lovely box. I think it is so sweet that you did that it's very touching!

    That is a really beautiful photo of JoJo. And they really did a nice job with the box. I think that whatever else you do to display those two beautiful items will be fine. You can't go wrong.
