SG, Westbury, NY: We were very happy with your Unveiling Package which you expedited to us last year during the second week of April. So many people remarked about the stones and were touched that they could write their own messages on them.
ECS, Evanston, IL: I am not Jewish but I was invited to attend a close friend's unveiling for her mother. I wanted to bring a gift and found your Jewish unveiling stones. My friend had never seen Remembrance Stones before and was overjoyed with my gift. She placed them on the new stone and the other Jewish memorial stones from her family. I feel like I did the right thing. Thank you.
EK, Miami FL: My dear friend recently lost her mother. As a Greek Irish Italian, I had no idea what would be the best way to send comfort to my friend and her family. They were already overloaded with food and flowers were not appropriate. So I sat down at the computer and began searching for an acceptable gift to send that would express our condolences in a personal way. I stumbled on to your website and ordered a set of Remembrance Stones.
They came almost immediately and when my friend returned to work after her loss, I had placed them in a circle on her desk. It was the first time I'd seen her smile in weeks, this was the perfect item! I'm not Jewish, yet I'd order these again for any friend who suffers a loss, no matter what their religion. Such a kind, personal commemoration of a life lived...thank you so very much.
SFB, Clinton, NJ: SFB has been working tirelessly since 2006 to restore the old Jewish cemetery in Dubiecko, Poland where her family members were buried after being murdered by the Nazis. In June, she returned to Poland to commemorate the cemetery and mark the mass grave where 160 people died. Remembrance Stones and local stones were placed on the only partial “matzveh” (monument) in the cemetery after the name of each person was read by a local student.
Remembrance Stones Comment: Congratulations on your successful mission! Your leadership provides an inspiration to American Jews.
Rabbi LS, Doral FL: This afternoon we had a family come to purchase property, at Lakeside Memorial Park and Funeral Home, for their daughter who died unexpectedly. They requested 50 Remembrance Stones to be given to friends to place on her grave on Sunday at her interment.
MB, Segal Funeral Home - Beth David Chapel, Tampa FL: The Remembrance Stones came yesterday, and we already sold ten this morning. Thanks!
LB, Tallahassee FL: I have not seen your stones, but I had seen stones left on the gravestone in the cemetery where my father is buried on Long Island. I did research as to why these stones were left, and find it a lovely and heartwarming tradition.
RM, Livingston NJ: I love the idea of personalizing the stones, friends and family know when I visited last and vice versa.
SK, Boca Raton FL: The stones are terrific. It felt wonderful.
JK, Marlboro NJ: Placing the Remembrance Stone at my parents grave, made my cemetery visit special. I had no idea that I would feel such emotion. When I returned the next year, it was heartwarming to find the stones still there.
ES, Waltham, MA: I felt very special placing the stone.
