In the book "The Lovely Bones" Susie Salmon is murdered by a serial killer.  She is caught in a plane or her own private heaven.  While there she watches over her family as she tries to come to terms with her murder.

If I were to make a collage of different things in her life, I would put a knitted hat on it.  She hated the hat, but it is the last thing her mother had given her.  I would use a coke bottle since it was a particular item that was the last human thing she had.

Suzie had a brother and a sister.  I would put something to represent them.  I would, of course, add a boat in a bottle, as you said, to represent her relationship with her father.  Since one of the things that Suzie uses to get her father's attention was a dead geranium, I would find a picture of the flower.

Ray Singh was the boy that Suzi liked and she died before she had a chance to get to know him better.  He had written her a love note.  A love note signed by Ray would have been very important to Suzie.

Another item might be a picture of a gazebo since Suzie spent many years there waiting and watching her family and friends.  One of the last things that I would add would be an icicle to signify what had happened to Mr. Harvey, her killer in the end when Suzie had helped the icicle to fall from the tree.
