Illinois Mother Searching For Lost Necklace Containing Son's Ashes

I was scrolling Facebook when I saw a woman, Brooke Holden, post about her mother's missing necklace at Meijer on 173 in Machesney Park, Illinois.  The necklace contains the ashes of Brooke's brother, so it's a really special piece of jewelry!

Here's what the necklace looks like:

Brooke shared this message to Facebook to alert her Illinois friends:

"My mom lost her necklace with my brothers ashes in it at the Meijer on 173. This was a few weeks ago but I’m just learning she still hasn’t found it. She said she felt something hit her foot while she was walking in the store but didn’t see anything when she looked down and later realized her necklace was gone. She has contacted Meijer and they said they don’t have it. I’m wondering if someone maybe picked it up and thought it was a pretty necklace and kept it. If you can share this around maybe it can reach someone that has it and hopefully we can get it back! This is the best picture we have of it. Please help get my mom get this special piece of jewelry back!"

Even though Brooke's mom lost the necklace a few weeks ago, they still haven't recovered it.  If you happen to be at Meijer on 173 or you know someone who works at that location, please don't hesitate to take a look around for the beautiful necklace!
