This is a coin purse my mom used all the time. She had if for many many years. She used to put money in it for my son and tell him it was from my dad in heaven. When she passed away in November of 2006 she left in in her room on her dresser (she lived with me) and I would put money in it and tell my son it was from her. My 8 year old son recently passed away (january 6th this year) and now I keep it in my purse to remind me of them both. I just wanted to share.
