Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.....

I don't know about anyone else but I had never heard of this before,
cremation diamonds.  Companies can take some of your loved ones ashes and turn it in to a diamond.
Now how cool is that?  And.....in case your loved one doesn't want a fire lit under them you can also use a lock of hair.  They extract the carbon from either the ashes or hair to make the stone.
If they use hair it is a blue diamond.  I don't know why the color is blue but that's what they said.

I told my daughters that I wanted to be turned into a diamond for each of them and I asked them if they would wear me.  They affirmed yes and Julie said she wanted to make me into a nose stud.

Hey, it beats sitting around in an urn!  Well, why not....a gem in life and a precious gem for eternity.  This little light of mine.......

Never heard of the idea. Intriguing, though.

I love it! Another way to make my kids feel guilty. Did you have Mama made into a diamond yet? No, I thought you said you'd do it. Did not. Did too.

I wonder if they can do this with animals? I would love to be able to keep my beloved Golden close to me.
