The day I gave my Wendt & Kuhn Angel away
The day I gave my Wendt & Kuhn Angel away was a day I will never forget. I was to my best friend who was in need of the support and faith because of what had just happened to her. It reminded me of how I received the first of my Wendt & Kuhn Angels. That occurred just a few years ago when my grandmother passed away.
When my grandmother passed away I had such a sense of loss and despair it was hard for anyone to comfort me. For you see my mother and father had to work all the time and it was my grandmother who I spent my days with. She was the one that I felt closes to in my young life.
When I had a problem, she always knew the right thing to say to make me feel better no matter what it was. She is the one that helped me thru the separation anxiety from my parents when they were forced to both work. She was also there when the neighborhood girls would pick on me because I was new.
We were often visited by my aunt. She would come over to talk with her mother and help with me on some days. You see my grandmother was getting on in age and my aunt had explained to me why I needed to behave while under her care. It would be easier on her while she was taking care of me.
When she passed away, I was devastated, but I remember the stories my grandmother use to tell me about her Wendt & Kuhn Angels that were on the shelves. For each one of them she had acquired thru a purchase or gift from past relatives that have moved to heaven. When they left, she believed they would still be with her in spirit and the Wendt & Kuhn Angels was the physical representations that help remind her of this.
When my grandmother passed away, I received a number of her Wendt & Kuhn Angels. It was what she wanted so I would never forget the times we spent together and I would always remember her. At that same time, my aunt gave me a brand new one. She explained this was a family tradition that should be used in the future when I know of someone who also experiences a great lose. I could pass it on to help comfort someone else in spirit, to always be with them when we would be physically apart.
This was a good thing because the little girl that had befriended me when the others in the neighborhood picked on me also lost her grandmother. I was lucky my aunt had lived near my grandmother and is now the person looking after me. This way I was there when my friend needed me most. I gave her the Wendt & Kuhn Angel my aunt had given me to pass on to a friend in need. This way she could always find comfort in knowing she was never alone.
