A long time coming

I first saw Matt’s website at least a dozen years ago and probably more. I have family members all over the country and as people got older I saw how much it bothered them not to be able to travel and visit their loved ones. It was then that I decided I would be cremated and I want some of my remains to be combined in to an orb. I told my son, I then want him to put two google eyes on the orb and I’m to be kept near his computer or TV so we can continue to enjoy things together. At first he thought this was creepy, but now he appreciates it. Well, fast forward to January 2024 and my dad passed away at 89. He also desired to be cremated so I took some of his ashes and sent them to Matt. What I got back is so beautiful and gives me such comfort when I look at it or hold it. I keep it on my computer desk so it is always near me. I like knowing where my dad is, he is right next to me. Matt was wonderful at walking me through the process and keeping me informed. I couldn’t be happier with him or the product.

Perpetual Pendant in Pure White

I lost my dad just before Christmas. I miss him tremendously, but this beautiful piece brings me comfort. Matt was trustworthy, compassionate, and punctual. He provided an easy-to-use collection kit with clear instructions, and he let me know what to expect. When I received my pendant, I cried. It means a lot to me to be able to literally have my dad close to my heart and to still include him in my life in this way. I’m looking forward to being able to take my dad with me to some of the places he had wanted to see before he died. Reaching up to hold onto this pendant when I’m missing him is a reassuring and grounding sensory experience, too. I ordered the Perpetual Pendant in Pure White. It’s very pretty, and I appreciate that this piece is subtle and something I can easily wear on a regular basis. The similarity in color between my dad’s ashes and the white background allows for maintaining privacy and enables me to be intentional with disclosing the significance of this piece. Delivery was timely, and I felt like my dad’s ashes were treated with respect throughout the process. Thank you, Matt.

For Matt and the Thoughtful People at Grateful Glass

My name is Bridget Bogdanich, who along with my husband, John, began our journey to search for the perfect memorial keepsake to bring honor and some closure at the loss of our son two years ago. When I discovered the ethereal beauty of the Grateful Glass products, I knew we had found our answer. The pendants are impeccable and so thoughtfully designed. We chose one for each of our family members, in a lovely light blue that brought reminiscence of our son’s beautiful eyes and gave the comfort of being close with him again.
Matt was informative, sensitive and always available to help meet our needs. He is a true artist and a special human being. We are grateful for him and his team, and as we had hoped, we’re afforded with some peace and closure at this sad time. Thank you, Matt and your team.

Beautiful keepsake

I love my necklace to honor my brother! Matt did such an amazing job and was so caring. I really appreciate his attention and craftsmanship.

My Daddy and Mama

There are no words to express the care, quality and detail that goes into every step of the process with Grateful Glass. Matt is kind, respectful and communicative, and goes far beyond what you'd consider from a business owner. I purchased a pendant for myself after Daddy died 5 years ago, and I just purchased one with my dad's ashes to give to my Mama for her birthday. It is currently breaking my heart that mama is in the hospital with sepsis, and may not recover. I won't ever be able to give her the wonderful gift Matt made just for her.

Kudos to this company. Don't even shop around. They are the best of the best.

Special Keepsake Memorial

I recently purchased a piece of jewelry made from cremation remains, and I couldn't be happier with my choice. This exquisite creation not only serves as a beautiful and unique piece of jewelry but also holds deep sentimental value for me.

The craftsmanship and attention to detail in this piece are truly outstanding. The way the ashes have been incorporated into the design is not only elegant but also incredibly meaningful. It serves as a constant reminder of the loved one I've lost, and I can carry his memory with me wherever I go.

The quality of the materials and the care taken in crafting this jewelry is evident. It is a conversation starter, allowing me to share the story behind it, and it has been a source of comfort during difficult moments.

I am genuinely impressed with the service I received from the artist, who was both compassionate and understanding throughout the process.

Overall, I highly recommend this jewelry made from cremation remains to anyone looking for a meaningful and beautifully crafted keepsake. It's a wonderful way to keep the memory of a loved one alive and close to your heart. Thank you for creating something so special and precious.

Grateful for Grateful Glass

This is the second pendant that Grateful Glass has created for me, and it is as beautiful and special as the first one. I appreciate the thought, care, and compassion that goes into the entire process. I've worn my first pendant every day for the past 7 years, and it brings me great comfort to have a memento of my kitty with me always. I've received so many comments on its beauty. I will now be wearing this new pendant to honor my kitty who recently died. I'm grateful for the service Grateful Glass provides; for the quick and compassionate communication when questions arise; for the respectful details throughout the process; and for the beautiful work of art that brings me comfort and reminds me of my loved one. Thank you!

Beautiful Work

I love both pendant and charm that I ordered. They are beautiful and will be cherished forever.

My Gentle Giant now walks with me

I absolutely love my necklace. It turned out beautiful and I can't think of a better way to honor my beloved Gentle Giant canine. A part of Stomper now literally rests close to my heart when I wear my necklace. While he's always with me in spirit, it's so special to be visually reminded of his presence via my Grateful Glass necklace

Incredible Customer Service and Beautiful Product

I initially ordered a pendant from someone else and it didn’t come out the way I wanted so I tried again with Matt and I am so pleased. He gave me a customer color, answered all my questions and was so patient while I was struggling to decide what I wanted. And then when it showed up it was gorgeous and so professionally done. I cannot recommend Matt enough. Thank you so much for giving me a beautiful memorial.

My dad

I unexpectedly lost my father 7 months ago. He was cremated and I wanted to memorialize him in a way that I could carry him with me when I needed. Grateful Glass is exactly what I was looking for. I ordered The Forever Pendant in cobalt blue; I’m getting married next year and this will be the perfect “something blue” and my dad will still be with me as I walk down the aisle. Grateful Glass was wonderful to work with from start to finish. From the collection process to updates on the process of my order, they were helpful and transparent at every step. I was confident that my father was being handled and treated with the utmost respect. The creation by Grateful Glass is so beautiful and the service they provide during one of the worst times in a person’s life is a blessing.

It was beautiful!

My most treasured jewelry

A few years ago, I made a pendant of my mother’s ashes with the help of Grateful Glass. Recently, my father passed away and I had a pendant made of his ashes. I also chose to have a white pendant made with a mix of both of my parents’ ashes, which I will be including in my bouquet at my upcoming wedding. Grateful Glass handled my order with so much care and the process was so quick. I truly appreciate all that this company does and the way that they operate. I will treasure each of these pieces for the rest of my life!

Orbs and Pendants

I am so pleased with all of the items we purchased after losing our baby girl Tally. What a beautiful and thoughtful way to feel closer to her and to see the creations Matt had crafted. Can’t thank you enough, Matt, for the important and beautiful creations you make.

With Gratitude

Tally was the best baby in the world. I cannot express the gratitude I have for these keepsakes that are so incredibly beautiful. The ashes appear to be magical in these creations, and I could not be more pleased with these memorials to help me feel closer to Tally. Thank you, Matt and team, for offering such a professional and unique service to those of use who grieve the loss of our best friends.

Truly a Beautiful Keepsake

I have recently lost my 17.5 year old beloved Pomeranian, Bandit, and through my online search for a memorable keepsake I came across Grateful Glass. The ordering and collection of ashes process was seamless, and all communication with Matt was stellar! He answered all questions that I had in short periods of time and kept me in the loop every step of the process. That being said, once I received the actual finished piece, no words can describe the beauty of it in person, pictures don’t even do the justice that it deserves, and knowing that I have such a wonderful keepsake to wear for a lifetime means everything. Thank you Matt for the amazing work that you do!

Kuma

I want to thank Grateful Glass for not only the quality of their work but also for the sincereness of the care they take with our loved ones remains. My wife loves the fact that she can have Kuma next to her heart at all times.
Thank you Grateful Glass staff

Beautiful momento

The piece that Matt made as a memorial is breathtakingly beautiful. It catches the sun in unpredictable ways and almost changes colors in different lights. It's comforting and striking all at once. It's like it's showing just a little of the beauty of the souls it is representing. I really appreciate this gift.

Amazing

Ordered this necklace for my Mother so she could have my Dad close to her heart. She picked it out so I ordered it, no questions asked. At first I was iffy because I thought the price was too high and I assumed the necklace would be too bulky and heavy for her to wear daily (she’s a home health nurse). After receiving the necklace I was in awe! I was so very wrong. The quality was top notch, it was far from heavy & the color of the glass was beautiful! Definitely would recommend Grateful Glass to anyone who wants a very well made keep sake for their loved ones ashes. The communication between the customer & the company is pretty great too!

Tuk Brodeur

Matt,
I wanted to take a moment to send my complete gratitude for the absolutely gorgeous and priceless heart ♥️Pendant that you created. We lost our most special big chocolate lab “Tuk” in July and my husband ordered the pendant from you, Grateful Glass, after hearing about your company from a friend. We were just devastated that we had to say goodbye to Tuk but yet so grateful to now have this pendant which holds some of his remains FUREVER. Thank you for offering such a beautiful keepsake!
The process was easy and done with such care, love and compassion. The final product came very timely and both my husband and I were just in awe. It simply is a priceless gift. Total gratitude!
Warmly,
Susan & Neil Brodeur

Grate communication Very happy

Matt took time to call me to discuss my daughters request and sent pictures seeing if she liked the result. My daughter and Matt both agreed on an original example over her request. She is very happy. I’ll post pictures when the final settings are done with Matt’s creations for my daughters.

Gives me comfort

I love it, Mojo, my soul dog is with me always……

Grateful for Grateful Glass

My pendent is beautiful and I have received so many compliments. To have this and wear it daily is a great comfort to me.
The company is a dream to do business with. The directions and process are organized and simple to follow. The communication throughout the process is perfection personified.
Thank you for making this possible.
