To move beyond the pain of losing someone you love can be a difficult thing. Be it family, friend or simply your pet. While we try to comfort them, most of the time we end up saying wrong or obvious words like- “be strong”, “don’t worry”- because no one really knows what will comfort or soothe them.
Like humans, pets are also one such perfect companion that we all love to have. And yes, they do communicate only if we have the ability to listen. For people who take care of their loving creatures like their own child, and have also experienced loss of their pets, it fills them with an infinite void that is hard to deal with.
But, here is one company that is helping people who have lost their loved ones, by bringing back memories in a physical form.
All they ask you is to only bring a handful of ashes of your family members or pet and they turn it into a masterpiece so that you can treasure them and remember the precious and the quality time you have spent together. The best part is- one can also customize it by giving them a shape of a flower, heart, pendant or paws so that you can keep them always close to heart.

This is exactly what this US-based company in Coeur d’Alene is showing people through their work. Davenport Memorial Glass is making this happen by working with human and pet ashes and transforming them into beautiful pieces of art.
Easy to carry, these small and stunning glass works are created so that you can carry a part of them wherever you go.
If you browse through the website, it says, “Our goal is to physically capture a moment, to create a keepsake that brings back a memory. Nothing will compare to the time spent with your loved one, but we hope to aid in treasuring them and remembering the precious time you had together.”
Even though there is no consolation for losing a loved one, but surely these glass-made flowers, hearts, and paws will surely serve as their memorial.
