Life isn’t fair. How can I help my family cope with our loss?
I decided to do some research into having something made from our flowers, ribbons and even his favorite shirt.
As I was researching I found a company that can use the Funeral Flowers and make keepsakes such as rosaries,necklaces, key chains, etc. And they could use the ribbons for angels and his shirt for a memory pillow.
But I thought that maybe I could make some of the items myself.
So I found the recipe for making rosaries on the internet. But I read that if you follow the internet recipe, or if the person crafting your keepsakes uses it, your “beads” will look black and have no aroma. I have actually talked to a lady who received such a rosary. Though it, she couldn’t believe how dark the red roses turned and now (after 6 years) the beads were crumbling to pieces.
After this “downer” I continued my search for another option.
I came across a company named Heart Keepsakes. And as I checked them out, I found out that they have been in business since 1982. I emailed them and asked they about their guarantee.
They stated that since 1982 they have only had one item returned damaged. And that was because a woman ran over her rosary with her CAR! So they don’t guarantee Car Damage…but they were able to make a finger rosary from the “slightly damaged”beads.
They stated that they DO NOT use the recipe on the internet….those won’t last. Heart Keepsakes has a patented pending formula that allows their keepsakes to last (so for over 36years). And also allows them to retain most of their original color and aroma.

I am totally pleased as are my friends who received their memorable keepsakes.
