I lost my brother John on 4th July 2015.
I decided to bring a momento to leave at one of the cairns of stones left by peregrinos on their walk.
I asked John’s wife Karen for a piece of jewellery which John had which I could incorporate in this momento. She gave me a necklace which John wore always, not worth a lot, but worth millions to me.
I decided to split this into two pieces, I wear one part as a bracelet and the other would be put inside a stone which I would split in two and carve out a chamber, big enough to hold the other half of the necklace.
I searched the beach outside our house for the right stone to use and found the perfect one.
I also have a video which you can view which might explain better.
Although I am not walking the Camino for any specific charity I have included a link at top of this page (hover over “For John” on menu) for Marie Curie. In Belfast they looked after John with great sympathy and dignity until he left us.
