Special Thanks to Lynchburg Coupon Mamafor this giveaway!

In May 2009, my family experienced a devastating loss. My younger brother, Silas, passed away after a terrible car crash on the 24th at only age 20 – just 2 months shy of his 21st birthday. You never seem to think about losing a sibling – at my age, I always expected my parents to be the first ones to pass on. As a parent, we also never think about losing children. I know I thank the Lord every day for another wonderful day to enjoy life with my two boys. 

My beautiful brother 🙂

3D Crystal New York recently provided me with the opportunity to review one of their beautiful crystal pieces and I thought about several different options that I had to choose from as far as what picture I would use and who it would be for. Since the 3 year anniversary of my brother passing was just around the corner, I decided it would be the perfect way to honor my brother and give something precious to my mother in his memory. 

A little background info…

After my parents divorced, my mom took on a 60-hour work week so I had to step up to the plate and help take care of my brother. We still had our fights like normal brothers and sisters do but just a few short weeks before he passed, Silas and I had an ‘adult’ conversation where he thanked me for being such an important part of his life. I helped guide him and shape him into the wonderful man he had become. That made my heart melt! Silas had started spending a lot of time at my house and was becoming such an influential part of my boys’ (his nephews’) lives. I was proud of the amazing man he had set his eyes on becoming. Sadly, his plan, my plan and God’s plan were all different. God had a plan for my brother and I know that he is in a better place now.

 After looking over the website, starting the process was really simple. I chose the heart shape and size of the crystal and then sent my favorite picture of Silas. The image was transformed into a beautiful 3D piece of art! The engraving technique, manufactured by Vitro Laser AG, is considered
the best in class high-resolution subsurface crystal laser engraving
system – so you are receiving a top-of-the-line piece! The outside of the crystal remains smooth so it’s easy to clean unlike other laser-cut crystal pieces that cut on the outside layer!

2012 marks the 3-year anniversary of my brothers’ passing and when I presented the crystal to my mom, she broke down into tears. It’s such a beautiful and breath-taking piece – hard to put into words how amazing it is! The 3D effect of the picture makes the piece captivating – almost like Silas was captured in the crystal 🙂
Each crystal also comes with a lighted stand which enhances the beauty. I love that the engraving is done inside of the crystal rather than the outside. This technique provides a streamlined and professional appearance.

In addition to the heart, 3D Crystal of New York offers pieces in Square, Tower, Diamond, Prestiges, Keychains and Flat 2D. You can customize a piece with your own photo or choose from Christmas scenes to Zodiac signs! Trophies and awards are available for Corporations, Clubs, Organizations, Associations, etc. 
3D Crystal of New York has been so wonderful – in fact, so wonderful that they are providing one of my readers with their very own 3D Personalized Engraved Medium Heart ($139.00 value!). Father’s Day is just around the corner and this would be a perfect gift for dad or even as a memorial gift to remember your father! These are also great for Graduates, Birthdays, Anniversaries and other special events!

  1. First time i caught a fish with my father. We use to go fishing all the time always have good memories of our times fishing.

  2. Tammie Justice says

    When my Dad would take my sister and I to the park…Or when we would go fishing. He was comical, I was 19 and if I would get a bite on my pole, he would run to my pole to reel it in…I really miss him, he passed away almost two years ago of cancer.

  5. Pauline Milner says

    I remember when my Dad used to take me fishing on Sunday mornings. It was just the two of us and I will always treasure the great memories we made. We would sit beside one another with our lines in the water and just talk. We talked about everything and I learned so much from him. I am glad I have those memories to remember him by.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway opportunity and for introducing me to this company. ~Pauline

    my favorite memory with my father hmm? well there are so many and we make new ones every day im a daddys girl we work together we live across the street from 1 another its hard to narrow it down. I love my daddy:)

  7. When my daughter was born, she was born in another city. Dad wasn’t in great health and knew he wasn’t supposed to drive.

    I woke up in recovery to someone calling my name, my dad. Still feeling the effects of the epidural, “I asked what are you doing here?” He says, “do you think anyone is going to keep my away from my granddaughter?”

    I remember shaking my head in amazement. That was dad. Loving and caring even when he didn’t feel well!!

    He finally got to hold her and cried like a little boy.

    There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t miss my daddy!

  8. Tanya Serrao says

    My favorite memory of my daddy was when he “married” my husband and me!

  9. Krystal Anderson says

    There are so many that i have of my dad. He and i have always been closer then my mom and I. The one that stands out right now happened 5 years ago. I lost my fiance in a drunk driving accident. After not believing it and trying to find out what happened my mom picked me up from my fiance’s grandmother’s house to take me back to my car. When i followed my mom home to change and get a few things. When i walked in the door my dad came up to me and opened his arms and wrapped me in a big hug and said “i am so sorry” My dad is a tall man at 6’4 and even though i am 5’9 at that moment i felt like a little kid in my daddies arms, feeling that feeling of everything is ok and i am safe and he will be there to take care of me. It was such a simple thing but at that moment in time is was the best thing in the world.
