We Stand with the Orlando Victims
All of us at ReMinkie are shocked and appalled by the Orlando Shooting on June 12, 2016. In this horrific mass shooting, 49 innocent people were killed and 53 more were injured. The Orlando victims were struck down while enjoying a night out at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Florida. Our hearts go out to the Orlando victims as well as their friends and families during this painful and difficult time.
At ReMinkie, our expertise is often called upon during times of tragedy, grief and loss. We frequently make memory bears in honor and memory of loved ones who have passed away. For those who are left behind; those who are grieving deeply, a memory bear is a soft, beautiful and huggable keepsake.
Our memory bears are made from the clothes and/or belongings of the loved one who has died. We have designed bears out of shirts, jeans, pants, blouses, neckties, uniforms, tees, fur coats, and much more. We have adorned memory bears with jewelry that belonged to the deceased. Memory bears often become a treasured keepsake. Each is a one-of-a-kind remembrance of the loved one.
We are grateful that our memory bears offer solace and comfort during difficult times. We are rewarded whenever we hear that our bears have helped with the healing process. We know there’s no simple formula to cope with unbearable loss, but we also know that very few people can resist hugging a memory bear.
Again, we extend our sympathies for all the Orlando victims as well as all who knew and loved them. You have our support. We only wish there were magical words that could ease away the pain.
