Kim and Richard are no strangers to grief. Both were widowed very young and have experienced many losses over the years. Their professional lives have also included grief and loss. Richard spent many years providing comfort to families as a Funeral Attendant. As a School Social Worker and a member of the Onslow County Schools' Crisis Team, Kim often worked with families and individuals who were grieving after tragic events. Both Kim and Richard retired from their "real" jobs in 2022 and are enjoying working together full time with both Memorial Treasures and its sister business, Your Island Treasure.
Your Island Treasure began as a side venture for Kim in 2012 and offers hand-crafted jewelry created with sand, shells, shark teeth and other beach treasures. They specialize in transforming memories into wearable art, allowing you to have part of your favorite beach with you forever.
