    Can Photos of Loved Ones Help Ease Pain?

    We all know there’s no better pain relief than physical contact with someone you love. Whether it be just holding their hand or being enveloped in a hug, it always helps us feel better. When we are hurting it’s just our instinct to search for that physical contact with a loved one to soothe us. Unfortunately, the people we love can’t always be by our sides.

    Love.

    As we get into the Valentine’s Day spirit, I’m struck by all the love around me. I am very fortunate to have a husband and daughter that love me and fills my heart with joy. Right now, I’m looking at one of my dogs, who looks up at me with nothing BUT love 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I think that deep down, the people who work with and for me, love me in their own way. And, I have some of the very best friends in...

    O Me! O Life!

    June means graduations. Pomp and circumstance. It means wrist corsages, and lockets containing photos - a moment captured. As that glorious month creeps up - tempting us to remember the joy of high summer when evening light hangs streaked and long in the sky - we know that ends signal new beginnings. Graduations are a case in point. My son is graduating and I have been thinking of Walt Whitman. Oh Me! Oh Life! … hat you are here – that life exists and identity, that the powerful play goes...

  6. Who To Put In Your Locket

    Who To Put In Your Locket

    People always ask me who I carry in my locket. Obviously, since the idea for the company originated after the death of my dad, they naturally assume that I am always carrying him. And a lot of the time, they are right. But the reasons I carry him have changed over the years and I find that at different times, I need different people with me. Sometimes I carry him and a lot of the time, I carry my family. I’ve even carried my favorite cat who I lost a...

    Mother's Day Spotlight: Dustin Bateman

    This is the story of the love of a young man for this mother and his grandmother. And of his wish to pay tribute to his mother with a keepsake locket. And of how With You fulfilled this wish in a memorable way. Recently, With You founder Troy Haley was addressing a high school student group about starting and growing a business.

    Celebrate or Mourn?

    If you’ve lost someone you held near to your heart, you will inevitably be faced with the decision of how to mark the anniversary of their death. Do you celebrate their life or mourn their absence? It’s a deeply personal decision and one of those times when you truly need to follow your gut.

  10. Grateful for Past, Present and Future

    Grateful for Past, Present and Future

    Last month, I had the good fortune to attend my high school reunion. It had been many years since I had seen my classmates. Truth be told, I felt so far-removed from my high school self that it’s almost as if those years were not my own. But, with the hope of seeing people I have recently reconnected with (thank you Facebook!), I made the decision to attend. And while I wasn’t nervous about going, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Which is great because the night was wonderful...
