locket is a family heirloom that has been passed down from generation
to generation on my dad's side of the family. All my dad's family is
Italian. My great-nonna (Italian for grandmother) gave it to my nonna,
my nonna gave it to my dad, and my dad gave it to me.
My locket is something very important to me. It is the only thing I
have that reminds me of my great-nonna. I never got to see my
great-nonna, because she died before I was born. So my locket is the
only thing I have of her.
I plan to keep the locket to pass it on to my kids when they are old
enough to handle it carefully. I will give it so my youngest child,
because I am the youngest child in my family.
I do not wear my locket because I am too scared that I will lose it.
If I lost it, in a way, I would lose my great-nonna. This locket is the
only thing I have of her. I would like to keep it as long as possible.
I want to take the locket into a jewelry shop so I can put some
pictures in it of my nonna and my nono (Italian for grandfather). I
cannot do it myself because it is very fragile, and I don?t want to
accidentally break it.
I do not have any pictures of my great-grandparents, so I will use
some of my grandparents. This way my children can see what their
great-grandparents looked like.
I keep my locket in a guardian angel box with cotton all around it
to keep it safe. I will keep it in the box until I either have some
reason to wear it or until I think my child can take proper care of it.
This is why my locket is important to me.
