Kimberly: I just had to write to tell you I received the memory quilts yesterday. They are exceptional. I started to cry how beautiful they are. I look at each square and can remember my daughter, Tracy, wearing each piece of clothing. How you did her first communion dress and prom dress was wonderful. You were truly great to work with and very patient with all my questions. One quilt is for us and the other for my son, I know he will be very touched to receive it. If ever you need a testimonial - please tell them to get in touch with me. I can't thank you enough for all you did for us. You are truly amazing.

I just had to write and tell you how very emotional it was for me when my quilts arrived today, you have so exceeded anything I could of ever imagined.. The loss of my father has been the hardest thing I have had to go through in my life and last night as I lay on the couch wrapped in my quilt, I had such a calming feeling of peace wash over me.  I can never thank you enough for everything you have done from taking the order, and keeping me updated every step of the way. If you ever need a testimonial please do not hesitate to give out my email address. Again thank you so much !  



 "Just wanted to let you all know that I received the most beautiful bed quilt I have ever seen.  You all are just so fantastic.  I got home from work yesterday, and picked up the package at the office.  It has been almost l year since my beloved mom passed away, and when I opened the box, immediately remembering seeing her in the actual clothes, I was smiling a lot and was very happy, and believe me I have not felt that great since she passed.  I want to thank you guys so much, and I still have some clothing of hers, so I noticed that you can make maybe another quilt, and some bears.  I really appreciated it so much.  It is just georgeous.  All the work is perfection.  Now I have her with me all the time, especially at night."
Thanks so much again,

I just wanted to let you know that the Throws arrived, and oh my gosh, I just don't know what to say!  They are absolutely the most amazing pieces of art and memories that I have ever seen! 
How can I ever say thank you for giving me a memory to wrap myself in at night while I am thinking about my father??
If anyone ever asks you about the Throw or Bears please feel free to give them my e-mail and I will let them know just how magnificent both are!
With much gratitude for all of your hard work and the care that went into making this for me and my family!
Have a very happy and healthy holiday!


I received my Memory Bear yesterday. IT'S BEAUTIFUL! and really captures who my dad was. He had a little pot-belly (not from beer, tho'). I have a couple of pictures of my dad wearing that shirt - it was one of his favorites.

I couldn't be more pleased and thank Memory Bears from the bottom of my heart.

This is going to my daughter as she was grandpa's girl. She will be thrilled to receive it. (I wish I had one)

Am attaching a picture of the bear and also one of my dad wearing the shirt.

If you ever need a testimonial, feel free to contact me. I can't say enough good about Memory Bears.

Thank you for your kindness to me,

R. Jean Trask


Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the wonderful bear that you produced from my late husband's shirt. This bear will go to his soon-to-be born grandson so that he can have a part of his grandpa with him always.

It is indeed, "Beautiful"!

Good morning,

I just had to email you this morning before dashing off to work. I received the BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL quilts yesterday, and was overwhelmed with joy. You did such an incredible job - - thanks so much. You have captured true memories of my wonderful Rickey, and have given me a treasure that I will truly cherish forever. One of the quilts will go to my niece, and the other two will go to Rickey's sisters. I know they will be truly touched as I have been. What a wonderful talent you have, and I believe God workes through your wonderful talent to bring true comfort to those you receive your comforters. I pray that God blesses you!!!

I just had to email and tell you how much the hearts of my 2 sisters-in-law and my niece were touched when I gave them the memory quilts you did from my wonderful husband (Rickey) T-Shirts. We all cried tears of joy and talked about seeing Rickey in different occasions wearing those funny "fishing" shirts and patches, and his blue jeans, work clothes....it was one of the most special day I have ever experienced. Your talent is definitely a gift straight from God, and I will cherish those 4 quilts

Thank you so much!!!



I got the quilt today and it is so very beautiful. I couldn't help but cry. I'm still crying now. The funny thing is that when I sent the clothes to you, I said to myself, I wish I would have had them make the back of it in red. That was Ryan's favorite color. When I saw the red backing I just broke down. This has really touched my heart and warmed my soul. I can't began to tell you how very much this means to me. I go to a support group and I've told them I was having a quilt made. I told them I couldn't wait to get it so I could rap it around me and feel Ryan giving me a hug. It's been over 2 and a half years now and it still feels like yesterday at times.

I'm so sorry that you lost your son too! It is a wonderful thing you are doing for people. I'm sure he is looking down on you and is so very proud of his mom. It's hard to turn something that hurts so bad into something positive but you did it!!!! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

hugs, Dona


Wow! What a wonderful job you all did. You all went above my expectations for my son’s memory quilt. I just love it! I know I’ll have years of comfort from this beautiful piece of art you created from my beloved son Colin’s clothing. Thank you very much.

I received my memory throw yesterday and I love it. I was very surprised by how well crafted it was and the colors all look so beautiful together. I ordered the quilt on a whim, having a bad day, missing my Mom. I am so pleased with the quilt, we snuggle up with it every night on the couch. Although my Mom is gone, every time I see the quilt, I smile thinking of all the good times that we had. Thank you for allowing me to have something that I can keep forever in her memory.

Lebeau Family and other staff,

I just wanted to thank you for setting up such a wonderful service at such a great cost for people. I never did get a chance to tell you how wonderful my family thought the quilts were. The crazy thing was that the quitls arrived the day that my family and I were going out to dinner to celebrate my mom's life after a year had passed since her death. They are truly all more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Who would have thought 7 quilts from such random mixtures of clothing could be all so similar, at the same time so unique and SO extremely beautiful. Every time we see them, it brings our mom back here with us. Just about everyone who has seen them has fallen in love and has sent in for a quilt of their own to remember their loved ones. Again, thank you so much. Between my family and friends here in Illinois, you guys have customers for life!

Thank you so much!

Hey there!

Just wanted to let you know that all four (4) of our bears have arrived safely to their new homes - and they were a big hit!

Everyone thought it was a great idea, but then we saw the actual bears - WOW!

I really appreciate that the fourth bear was not sent out until you were satisfied with the quality - that speaks volumes about your company and staff, as well as your standards and commitment to customer service!

These bears are a gift from heaven - I am telling everyone I know (and anyone who will listen) about your company and my experience with your staff!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I can only say...WOW,WOW,WOW!!! These are so beautiful. Each one could tell a story in itself...The mail lady brought them to us. As soon as she saw them in her truck this morning...you see... she has lost her husband this year and knew from the one box for Susan that this was more of the same stuff...She cried with us..What a morning this has been...and it is all thanks to you all and the great works of art you produce!!!

To receive such wonderous gifts,from people that you really never meet, face to face, is a true testament to the Lords Will and Work. I have always felt that our provider, Lord Jesus Christ,will always walk with us, even in our darkest of days, and will Bless us with all that we need, when we need it. Your work is a blessing that all people need to help in the healing process of the loss of a loved one. They will now be able to hold and wrap themselves up in the actual cloth that had once held Penny so close. It will comfort us all greatly!! One of the throws is for a new baby, due in April, that will be named "NEVAEH"...heaven backwards...which is so special to me. She will be Penny and My granddaughter. I almost can't wait for that day to come.

Again ,Thanks to everyone,



Susan and Kimberly,

I received my quilt today and I am speechless!!!! I felt Manuel in the room when I opened the box and pulled the masterpiece out. It is him, through and through!!! I went square by square and have so many wonderful memories from
each one of them. Words can not express the joy I felt when I first saw it and held it the first time. I know that it will bring me years of joy and comfort.   Thank you for your love and caring, you are both true artists. The good Lord
has bestowed a gift on you which is making people happy through bad times. I   will spread the word to everyone I know that may need your expertise.

Thank you again and God Bless.

Sally Ochoa
