Sympathy Scroll Box Reviews:

"Seriously precious item. I know that it will bring much comfort."

"I gave this as a gift to a friend who recently lost her husband to brain cancer. She loved it and I think it will bring her some comfort. Thank you!"

“A beautiful item; very touching and special...”

"I sent these to a very special friend who had just lost her husband; I found these and thought they were perfect. She wrote to me how thoughtful it was -- they are just perfect."

“Amazingly kind seller. Beautiful and unique product....highly recommend to anyone wanting to comfort a loved one during a time of great personal loss, but who may not have the words to do so themselves.”

“Beautifully made and handcrafted with love! Thank you for your kind words!”

“This item was sent as a gift directly from seller. So I didn't get to see it in person. The gift receiver relayed how much he really loved and enjoyed this gift! Seller has great communication and I felt she truly cares about the items leaving her shop.”

“It is so beautiful and special. It is for my mom for Mother's Day because my dad passed away. She will love it as I did!”

“When my girlfriend opened up the beautiful box and read a scroll, she cried. Meribah-Fantastic job from the wrapping to the scrolls. Bless you.”

“I didn't see the actual item as it was sent to a friend after her dad passed away. I had no idea what to send and didn't want to just do flowers that would die or a card or something silly. This was the PERFECT gift to offer a bit of condolence, a bit of love, and a bit of remembrance. My friend LOVED it so I am beyond thrilled. I think I found my new go-to gift for any occasion!”

"So grateful for the seller that makes these. She really has touched so many people in different ways. I have bought 2 of these for grieving a loss. I have to say the love is received through her work and her own loss. Thank you again for doing what you do. It helps and Makes a huge difference ♡♡♡♡"

♥ Grief is a subject near and dear to my heart. In June 2012, my identical twin girls - Gwendolyn and Gabrielle - were born early at 33 weeks. My precious Gwen was stillborn and our sweet Gabry survived. These message scrolls are prepared in memory of my Gwendolyn and others who will be remembered and loved forever in our hearts. ♥

(For Loss & Grief) - My friend or family member recently lost a baby and I'm not sure a Baby Loss Scroll Box will be the right gift for her?

After I lost one of my identical twin girls in June of 2012, I found that many people just didn't know what to say to me, so often times they said nothing at all or maybe something that was even a little hurtful, like, "You can always have another baby".

I started collecting comforting quotes to help me through my grief.

The Baby Loss Scroll Box is a collection of those quotes - many of the quotes come from prominent people who have lost babies.

With this gift, you will be saying, "I will always remember your baby. I might not have the right words, but I am thinking of you."

There is incredible comfort and healing that can come when our friends and loved ones remember our babies with us - they are always in our hearts!
