We invite each family we work with to share their experience with solidified remains. Below, you can read some of the beautiful, sad, inspiring, tragic, funny, heartwarming, heavy, and touching letters that we have received.
Dear Jenny, Thank you for taking such care of my cat Phoebe. When I opened the box, I was brought to tears by the memory of him. Thank you for your reminder (in stones) of all the fun we had together. Parting Stone is such a great way to transform ashes- I am grateful. Always, Marty
I am absolutely amazed at the entire beauty of Boy’s stones. Learning each stone was hand formed by you for me made this so much more personal, proof to me you cared about what was in your hands. Now, feeling the incredible smoothness and finding the ever-so-slight indentations to allow for various arranging. Sophia, Dear, you have transformed my cat into a work of art I can experience and love anew! The fact he is now three single stones, after having only three legs in life, my little Boy remains “perfect” as he was, with sincere thanks to you! What you do has greatly touched my heart. Thank you! God bless you always - Sallye
My sweet Clover!
Dear Sophia, Thank you so much for creating the beautiful stones for my cat Redford. He was my first cat and my soul cat. We had a super special connection - that carried us through many events - ups and downs over 18 years. I miss his blue eyes and orange red coat - but these stones make me feel close to him still. I am so grateful, Lisa.
Dear Nigel - Thank you so much! I am really impressed, and the stones will be nice to have and a great remembrance of my cat. Appreciate everything you did. - Marie Katherine
Ileana, while I don’t know the role you played - from forming the ashes to shepherding him through the process, I honestly can’t thank you enough. To you, this was [another order] - to me this was my gone cat - Maverick. Thank you for caring for him and returning “him” to me. I’ve had a number of cats in my life, but none as special as Maverick. He was my shadow, my companion, my sweet boy. He went by a lot of nicknames - noodle boy, sneaky boy, love bug, and yes, little dude. He was a beautiful Siamese and I lost him too early… Thank you for your efforts, your care, your compassion, and role with my sweet Maverick. Love, Lisa
Hi Emily! Thanks for taking such great care of our dog Millie! She was with us for 16 years and this is a great way for us to preserve her memory. We live just north of San Francisco. She had so much fun at the beach and exploring!Keep up the great work! Brant & Amanda
Ileana, thank you so much for taking such great care of Harvey’s ashes. We have placed each stone in some of his favorite places and I carry one of the smaller stones with me so he’s always close. You made that possible and we are so grateful to you for it. We miss him tremendously but we feel so much comfort that some part of him is close and tangible. Thank you, JILL & RYAN
Hi Alexandra, Thank you for your work on my parting stones for my dog Bentley. Receiving them was as I imagined- a helpful & moving part of my healing journey. They feel so right and natural and are beautiful. I felt awkward with his ashes but more at peace with his stones. y'alls work is healing. Thank you again. Ellen
Nicholas, Thank you for your help and work with Zoes’ remains, from my family to you and yours. The stones are very comforting and I know via the emails that I received that they were tricky to make. I cried when I opened the box. They are so smooth, I was hoping they would not feel strange to hold, but far from it. I have a few of them at my desk at work and I love to hold them.I gave some each of my family, and my very stoic dad cried. Thank you, we all miss our good-good pup, but this has helped us all grieve and release. I sincerely am grateful for you and the service provided by Parting Stone. All my best, Nathan
Dear Ana, Thank you for taking such good care of Hacker for me.♡ His stones are lovely, I have them placed about the house and just a glance reminds me of the peaceful and loving bond we share. I am very grateful for you and what you have created for me.♡ All the best,Tara
Emily, the stones keep our love alive for the best pup we ever had - Your work was unknown to us until our daughter gave us these special Parting Stone remains. As hard as it is to lose a loved one, the work you do will help us remember her everyday. We will tell others about this special way to remember those we have lost. Thank you for all your hand work.
Pat, Thank you for taking such good care of my husband. When his stones arrived I felt a calm throughout my body that I haven't felt since I lost him. Knowing I can have him with me puts me at peace whenever I leave the house. Catherine
Thank you for taking care of my FIL's ashes. The stones will allow my MIL and their grandkids to spread them at all their favorite locations including on our family vacation to WDW. They all get to keep a piece of him with them. Kind regards
A PEACEFUL FEELING WARMED MY HEART as I looked at one and felt the beautifully polished stones. Thank you for taking such good care of my dearly departed wife. I will carry her in my pocket wherever I go and decorate my house and garden with her. All the best to you and your loved ones - Terry
Alexandra, Thank you is not sufficient for the work on the parting stones for my husband Warren. His passing was sudden and a great shock. It is of great comfort to have him back home with me. I keep one stone with me wherever I go. Our daughter does the same. There are not enough words to express our appreciation for your work and attention to my husband's stone. Sincerely, Anita
Dear Alexandra- I received my father's stores several weeks ago. The care taken to package and present his stones was so very touching. Thank you for your work and the detail of your packaging. My dad was quite the outdoorsman and naturalist. He was also an avid traveler and explorer. Part of my decision to pursue the creation of the stores is so I can”take” dad with me as I continue to travel and explore the US and world. Thank you for making that possible! Blessings - Becky
Thank you for making the stones. I like how smooth they are. It helps me remember my grandma. Love Lauren
I received my brother, Chad, back home today. It is so fitting in that tonight is the first night of HanuKkah and he loved the holidays. I wasn’t certain of what to do with my brothers ashes from his death four years ago and then my wife told me about Parting Stones. I have multiple sclerosis and I am blind. When I picked up the stones and felt it today, I sobbed and held the stone tight. It felt so beautiful and reminded me, that although my brother had his addictions, he was my angel. And, I miss him. Thank you for taking such good care of him and making his memory to me so powerful and beautiful. Never underestimate the impact you make in someones life. Your work is profound. From my heart Cheri
My family and I loved that we were offered the option of Parting Stones in place of ashes. We have all decided that our beloved husband, father, and “papaya” (as his granddaughters called him) will be placed in all his favorite places. Thank you so much for allowing us this option… and to keep a part of him close to us always.
Hi Nicholas, I wanted to thank you for your wonderful work in creating the beautiful stones that are my husband. He was born and raised in Sweden, so this summer I traveled to Sweden with many stones to be given to his brothers. Other stones went to family in California and Delaware; so you can see the impact of your work traveled far and wide. Most importantly, I carry a perfect stone with me, so I feel he is still a part of me. Thank you!! Diane
Nikki, thank you so much for all that you do. Without these Stones I don't know where I would be mentally. They give me so much peace. I have one around my neck everyday. He is with me. I can hold one in my hands and feel him. Thank you Again Ray
Jef, Thank you so much for the beautiful Stones.They are a Wonderful reminder of a life well lived and loved. My honey passed 11-30-21 and these are a very tangible piece of him I can hold or carry around with me. Everyone I know has been told of this gift. Thank you again for giving me peace and comfort. God Bless the WORK you do. Joni
