Chesterfield Twp, Michigan (PressExposure) June 16, 2009 -- âSending a gift to a funeral will never be the sameâ, Says CEO and Founder, Lorraine Sawicki who has teamed up with two neighbors to create Remember Me Stone Co. Remember Me Stones are the first of its kind where the message from the deceased becomes the gift and a keepsake that will remain long after the service is over.
âIn lieu of flowersââ¦ Believe it or not, 74% of people do not comply with âin lieu of flowersâ, simply because they are directed by tradition or obligation. We tend to send flowers to funerals no matter what the obituary reads. âItâs time for changeâ, says Andrea Hilgendorf Director of marketing and founder, now you can send a meaningful gift not just for one, but one for everyone. While creating Remember me Stoneâs, it was important for a gift to do three things: pay respect to the family, provide a keepsake for the survivors and pay tribute to the deceased.
Remember me Stone Co. offers hand crafted stones, varying from 2 to 3 inches. The name of the deceased is beautifully hand written on each individual stone with a phrase that best portrays his/her love for family, friends, occupation, sports, hobbies, etc. âThe best part about creating this type of company,â says Angela Gearin Executive Director of operations and founder, âwas creating over 150 phrases that can be applied to the stones.â The phrases are available for our customers to choose from in categories such as patriotic, humorous, and inspirational or you can simply create your own phrase. One family ordered stones with âPlease donât sell the Harleyâ and another family chose âSave the earth, itâs the only planet with beerâ. Badge numbers and military rankings are quite popular.
Not only are Remember Me Stones affordable, they are available in several languages and can be shipped immediately.
âRemember your loved one when they are gone, but cherish their memory as you live onâ.
