When a loved one has passed, be it a family member, friend, or pet, keepsakes that mark a life well lived can offer comfort. In fact, that’s the reason we provide a Sympathy Store on our website. We also stock catalogs for mourners who prefer meeting in our Glendora showroom. Memorial gifts are perfect for people who want a token to symbolize their loved ones, and they also provide a tangible way for friends and relatives to share their care and concern when words are not enough.

Ash-filled urns or potted plants used to be the only mementos available to mortuary clients. But times have changed. You can creatively honor someone who died or recently suffered loss:


When it comes to grief, many people appreciate thoughts of the afterlife and angelic beings watching over their family and friends. You can reinforce this with a reflective statue given in memory of the one who has passed.   


You can place framed art in a prominent place in the home, paying silent tribute to the one remembered.

Children’s Gifts

When a child experiences loss, he or she will take comfort in a soft plush toy which can accompany a note of encouragement.

For the Garden

Whether you would like to plant a garden in someone’s honor with special memorial seeds or provide a contemplative spot to rest outdoors, garden memorial items such as benches, personalized seed packets and wind chimes feature inspirational messages. Other garden variety gifts include seedlings, small trees and even a special “Gable Gift Box.”

Frame it

Photos are part of life. But in the 21st Century, most of those pics are digital. So, the gift of a frame with a printed image will mean so much.

Pet Products 

They wrap themselves around our hearts. So, when we lose a pet, we can’t help but feel empty. Encourage someone you love with a gift to mark their dog or cat’s life. Paw print necklaces, memorial markers, personalized pet urns and tree tags are a few creative ways to mark the life of man’s best friend.

Tribute Blankets

Personalized with a loved one’s favorite Bible verse, quote or even their likeness, tribute blankets allow mourners to symbolically wrap themselves with love.

Veteran’s Memorials

When someone who has served their country dies, mark their passing with a memorial honor blanket, framed artwork, a teardrop pendant, or a memorial flag.
