    Denise made a bear for me to give my grandson when he lost his dad (my son). My grandson was 6 at the time and 2 yrs later he still holds on to that bear when he spends the night. The bear is made from one of my sons shirts and it really gives comfort to my grandson. Denise has a true talent. I highly recommend her memory bears!

    So excited to see these as my mom‘s best friend of 30 years recently passed away. I’m hoping to have a bear made and it only for my mom but for her husband. I see you make pillows out of neckties but could you make a necktie out of an old piece of her clothing as her husband is a professor and where is a necktie every day. Hoping to get this order to you soon. It’s a very recent death and I have to be sensitive about asking for the clothing.

    I have used Memory Lane Boutique on many occasions, starting with my dad’s death in 2015. I remember being so afraid to part with his shirts. What if they got lost? Instead, Denise made sure to let me know when they arrived safely. She also notified me right before she returned the finished bears to me. Every grandchild now has a “Moby Bear” to love. I have one as well and every time I see it, it brings a smile to my face.

    I have since bought memory bears over the years for family and friends who have lost loved ones, and the bears never cease to provide comfort and happiness. The quality of the bears is top notch and Denise makes them so adorable. I highly recommend Memory Lane Boutique and I will continue to use Denise as long as she is in business.

    I had a teddy bear and a heart pillow made for my 2 kids from their Grandfather’s flannel shirts. The pictures on the website accurately showed what we received. They are both extremely well-made. They bring great comfort to my kids.

    When my son died I wanted something to hold onto. I found the bears then I studied all the sites and found Memory Lane Boutiques were the ones I liked best. I had a very difficult time mailing out my sons sweatshirts but Denise emailed when they arrived and also prior to making the bears to get my acceptance first. Very thoughtful of her. I had 4 bears made, one for each of my immediate family. They all totally loved them❤️Could not have asked for anything more. I then had bears made from my mom to her great granddaughters and a pillow for myself. Thank you Denise for honoring my loved ones with such care and love!

    We lost my dad to Alzheimer’s Christmas Day 2016. To say that it was hard is an understatement. I visited Mom a few months later, and “stole” one of Dad’s shirts to send to you to make a bear. I gave it to her later that year.
    She cried and cried… which made us all cry. She LOVED it. It was one of Dad’s favorite shirts — he was a cowboy at heart and always wore the snap front, plaid style shirts. He had literally dozens of them.
    Mom sleeps with the bear and it stays on their bed during the day. She cherishes it because of the memories that it brings. And for a minute, she can almost believe she’s hugging Dad.
    Thank you so much!

    I am so thankful for this company, we sent down my mother’s clothing they sent back 8 large bears that were done beautifully, I shared them with my siblings and my children.
    It used to make me sad when I would see my mother’s clothing in the closet, now I see beautiful bears that truly bring a smile to my face.

    Thank you so much for your care and fine detail. I even explained that I would be seeing my siblings soon and you rushed the order so I could have them in time.

    Thank you so much and God bless you and your business.

    I can’t say enough about the memory bears that I had made. The detail was perfect and was very touching to receive something to give my grandkids to hold onto from their Uncle. I highly recommend Memory Lane!
