This is beautiful and exactly what we were looking for as a keepsake for my mother-n-law for my father-n-law’s ashes. It is just perfect! Thank you!!
I have rarely been separated from my Grateful Glass keepsake necklace since I received it. My heart was completely shattered when I found out that my loving cat, Callie, of 11 years, was not going to recover when she developed an abrupt and severe illness. After she had gone through numerous evaluations, procedures, and medications that did not improve her condition, my last hope was to have her undergo exploratory surgery to get more answers. Unfortunately the answers I received from the veterinarian were grim, and I was faced with the reality of having to make the most difficult decision I would ever have to make about her care. My heart wanted to ask the veterinarian to wake her up from surgery and let me take her home with me where she belonged, but the reasonable side of me (I am in the medical field), knew that this road would be the selfish one, now equipped with the new information just provided to me. I couldn’t let her suffer, and I couldn’t watch her suffer any longer. And just like that, she was gone from my world forever.
In the few days following that dark day, I began searching the internet for a way to memorialize my companion, who was so loyal to me all those years. I knew I wanted to keep a part of her with me always. When I began looking at jewelry, most of what i found in my searching was either tacky or morbid in appearance. But the moment I happened upon Grateful Glass, I knew immediately I had found my forever keepsake. After reading other reviews and testimonials, I was assured that my loved one’s ashes would be treated with dignity and respect through the entire process of having my keepsake made. I was drawn to the story about how Matthew Olian first began making these special pieces, providing a ray of hope to those who have lost pets or loved ones. The ordering process was smooth and easy. I also received my finished product even sooner than it was promised, and it was even more beautiful in person. Thank you for what you do, Gratefu...
I want to express my great appreciation for Matt and his business. He really makes a difficult time feel more at peace with his great creations. I have dealt with many businesses over the years and this was one of the best experiences that I ever had. His order process and shipping is world class as well as his follow ups and availability for answering questions. I highly recommend his services and will tell everyone I know about this awesome product line he offers to help ease the pain of a loss of a loved one.
I'm so happy with the pendant Matt made for me. It's even more gorgeous in person. I chose the petite pendant in royal orange.
Scruffy was more than just a cat. He was my constant during the most major changes in my life. He was with me for 10 years. He comforted me through the stress of college, the excitement of marriage and children, the worry and anxiety of a military deployment, and everything in between. When he passed away, I couldn’t bear to think what my life would be like without him. Grateful Glass was my answer. I received my amber purple cuff bracelet two weeks ago, and I finally feel closure. I’m comforted knowing Scruffy is always with me, again, just as he had been. Thank you so much, to Matt especially, for promptly answering all my questions when I was worried about the process. Picking a company to handle such sensitive and emotionally delicate work was stressful, but once I looked into Grateful Glass, I was so impressed with their entire process. I can’t say enough positive things about them. Thank you again for reuniting me with my boy.
