A Loss Remembered
After the death of my daughter Zoe I realized the need for acknowledging the anniversary of a child's death. These cards are a loving way to let a grieving family know that they are still in your thoughts. Also available in the Sympathy section are general sympathy cards designed to provide a subtle and gentle acknowledgment to anyone who is grieving. All cards are printed on high quality linen finish card stock and are hand embossed. Cards come with a matching linen finish envelope.
A Place to Remember
Uplifting support resources for those who have been touched by a crisis in pregnancy or the death of a baby.
Baby Angel Pictures
Photographs of stillborns and newborns who don't make it home from the hospital are usually very difficult to look at, and are usually the only image that the parents have of their child. Through this free service, our skilled digital artists work with a digital copy of your original, eliminating medical equipment, removing unsightly marks and even replacing the background if desired. Mothers can scan their photos and upload them to us or have a participating retail partner scan them and upload them to us.
Beyond Words Designs
From the artist: I paint relationships and strive to capture the love and emotion that motherhood is all about.

The mission of The Comfort Company is to simplify the difficult process of expressing sympathy by offering a meaningful selection of non-traditional gifts designed to acknowledge loss rather than to minimize it.
From the Comfort Cub website: Experiencing a loss in your life-a child, a spouse, a parent, grandparent, family member, friend, or any type of great loss is devastating. I know, I have had great loss in my life too. There really is not a whole lot we can do when someone we love is experiencing this kind of grief. The most important thing we can do is to let them know we care. My hope is that by sending them a Comfort Cub that their burden is lifted a little and their healing can begin.

From the website: Welcome to our very special line of Miscarriage Jewelry for those who have experienced the loss of a baby by miscarriage or stillbirth during pregnancy, or during infancy. So often when a mother loses her pregnancy to miscarriage or stillbirth there is no place to go to feel connected to their baby, no place to grieve her loss. We created our Miscarriage Jewelry and Infant Loss jewelry to help mothers feel connected to their babies, to have a tangible something to touch and to lend them strength when they need it most. Our miscarriage jewelry allows mothers to carry their babies next to their heart, and to celebrate the lives that they carried. When the rest of the world goes on like nothing has ever happened, sometimes the grieving mother needs that extra something special to hold onto that carries her baby's memory with her, where ever she goes. Our miscarriage jewelry makes the perfect gift to show a grieving family that you acknowledge their loss, that you care, and want to lend your support.

SHINE isn’t just a store loaded with sweetness and sparkles, surrounded by chunky babies, cake and chocolate… and the occasional butt naked baby streaking by in nothing but their rain boots and a superwoman cape. It’s a community where life is lived, tears are shared, and hearts can heal. Where I give – but more often get – laughs, love and inspiration. SHINE allows us to live our faith out loud. To find joy in all things and glorify God in everything we do – through the struggles and tragedy and love and grace. We don’t just love what we do, we love WHO we do it for. We can only hope that this is clear on our site and in our pieces. Every time we are offered the opportunity to help one person smile in a storm, dance in the rain, or simply feel beautiful and loved, the trials we’ve faced that inspired those pieces prove worthwhile – those pieces become the very pieces that encourage YOU, to shine on.

Sympathy Solutions was established in Denver, Colorado in 2002 with a mission to change the way individuals are supported and sent condolences in grief and loss and to offer a meaningful way to provide healing support. Although we believe there is a place for flowers in a funeral or memorial service, too often, these flowers can actually be burdensome to the family, if in excess, and can be another representation of loss as the blooms wither. Or the sender may not given to the family or their information lost in the service. Our goal is to provide gifts that can help in their healing process. These gifts become their connection and a physical representation of their loved one. Many items provide a means for “ritual”, the hanging of an ornament each year, the planting of a tree, etc. which has been proven as one of the best ways to process loss and support emotional healing.
There is an old proverb which states that after a heart has been broken, it is truly wise, compassionate and whole. This is the foundation behind the concept of the unbrokenheart. Healing a broken heart may be difficult, uncomfortable and seem an insurmountable task... but when you embrace the process, you will see the beauty of your unbrokenheart.
