Capturing Treasured Legacies Through Our Memory Bears and Pillows

At Gilchrist, we understand that memories are precious, especially when a loved one is no longer with us. Creating memory bears and memory pillows provides comfort to grieving families by transforming cherished clothing items into tangible keepsakes through memory bears and pillows. These keepsakes serve as a physical reminder of the love and connection shared with their departed family member.

“Sometimes a hug is worth a thousand words and that is clear in these adorable picture of Elaine Pilkerton receiving a memory bear in honor of her daughter Sandy.

Elaine cried happy tears when she received the bear and said she feels like she now has a piece of her daughter back with her. She loved the bear so much she took it around to three of her neighbor’s apartments the same day so everyone could see how beautiful the bear was. Elaine was able to place a voicemail recording of her daughter in the bear and now when she hugs the bear, she can hear her daughter’s voice.”

Significance of Memory Bears and Pillows

Memory bears and pillows hold deep significance for families coping with loss. Crafted from clothing items that carry memories and emotions, these keepsakes become a source of comfort, offering a tangible connection to the past. They provide solace during difficult times and serve as a tangible representation of the love and memories shared with the departed loved ones.

For families navigating the grieving process, memory bears offer a unique form of healing and remembrance. Holding the bear provides a sense of closeness to the departed loved one, bringing comfort and warmth during moments of sadness. These bears become cherished heirlooms, preserving memories for generations to come and providing a source of solace during times of grief.
