Did you look on ebay? Also google Antique or Vintage Hillmark rosaries, There are those who collect rosaries and others who sell old ones. Good luck.
Personally, because you are the only practicing Catholic in your family, I would not hesitate to ask Grandma for the rosary. I think it is lovely because it is something you would be using daily and when you use it, you'll be thinking of her. Tell her that. I would want my grandaughter to pray for me and remember me. She may be waiting for you to say something. :thumbsup:
No, just searched on Google. I will look specifically on ebay though. Well, my grandma isn't practicing either. My family is very weird and complicated, haha. But when I converted, she gave me my dad's old Missal and our family Bible. She knows and appreciates that I am really the only one in the family who values these types of things even though she hasn't practiced in a long time.
My mom said that she doesn't think I should say anything because she doesn't want my grandma to think we were nosing through her things. But I don't think my grandma would care because she even said that everything in there (she has some very expensive, nice jewelry as well) is to be divvied between me, my mom, and my aunt. Recently though, my grandma said something about wanting to sell the jewelry in there, and my aunt doesn't want her to sell these valuable and sentimental things, so she said that we had already split everything up. My mom said best just not to mention anything, lest she remember that box and get the idea into her head again that she wants to sell the stuff.
It's just a complicated and long story! My mom said just to go ahead and keep it for now, I'm the only one who would really care about it, and if and when anyone mentions it, I will just say that I borrowed it and would be happy to give it to someone else.
