I truly recommend the Parting Stones. I can hold them anytime. They are a deep com fort to me. Holding one helps me through my grieving process.
I like that i can always have a part of my husband with me everywhere i go
It was truly so perfect for our mother! She was bigger than life and always had jars of stones everywhere and even in her pockets at all times!
We have been able to take her and leave her in her favorite places… Paris - Vegas- the ocean - near her parents in Arkansas- her birth place KC… People love the comfortable free feeling the stones give them! You are AWSOME Parting Stone…
My husband and I had so many great plans for travel. Once we retired, but those plans didn’t work out the way we hoped. But I’m still seeing through on all those plans and bringing him with me. As I experiences new countries, cultures, or just enjoy a beautiful afternoon by a lake, I can reach in my pocket and know that my husband is with me.
My plan was to take the stones to my husband place of birth and also where he grew up overseas. I did not realized that I would be getting such a large amount of stones but I must admit that it is nice to have a tangible object to touch when grieving one’s loss.
I keep my husband’s stones in a large bowl. I always smile when I see them and it is comforting to pick up one of the stones and just run my fingers over its smooth surface. It has been a healing experience to be able to offer family and friends stones for them to keep. I’m pleased that I made the choice to have the stones rather than simply his ashes.
I have appreciated having the parting stones and can leave them in places much the same as ashes if I wanted to. I also carry the smallest one with me and like having it close. I envision ashes being a bit messy, but do not know for sure.
Sad is an understatement regarding my son’s sudden death, but I was glad that the option provided by Parting Stone was available. It helped all of his immediate family to have that option.
It is the best idea- we love the stones. My only comment was I thought they would be differentt soft colours - all the stones we got were all off white instead of soft grey or light blue.
After the recent loss of my son who was only 20 years old, choosing the resting place of his remains as it is for all of us, was very difficult. The urn my older son chose was beautiful and was a reflection of my son’s personality, but it didn’t feel like the whole answer. Our loved ones are complex, and when the funeral director noticed my hesitation to commit entirely to the urn he mentioned the Parting Stones. Such a wash of relief came over me, it felt right! The stones reminded me of the hours and hours walking the shores of the Great Lakes picking up stones with my beautiful boy! With the option of using part of the remains for the stones, I was able to contain his remains in two forms which represented well his diverse personality. And my older son had closure with the urn and I had closure with the smooth stones. Beautiful and complete. (Please feel free to make edits)
I've had my mother’s ashes for over a decade. I kept them in my clothing closet. They didn't make me feel warm or sentimental. Getting these has been transformative.
It’s more sentimental to have an object than it is to have ashes. In the stone form, it’s an easier way to carry somebody with you without so much weight and stigma.
