I learn a lot from my customers, I really enjoy hearing their stories and how the
Memory Lamps help them during a time of loss.  I have one particular customer that
told me a story that I often tell to others to help them understand just how much
these lamps mean to people.  This one special lady had lost her husband and
received one our Memory Lamps from a friend in honor of her husband.  She
explained to us how she turned on her lamp and has kept it on since the day she
received it as it brings piece and comfort to her.  She also used this lamp as a way to
give her a sign, as she explained to me she was looking for the right time to spread
her husband ashes in the ocean upon his request.  She decided to turn on the lamp
the day she received it and to keep it light until the light bulb got tired and burnt out
and that would be the sign she needed for the spreading of her loving husband
ashes.  Do you know that lamp shined in his memory for just about a year before the
bulb burnt out.  I was so touched that she wanted to share such a special story with
me.  What a lovely lady,  thank you for your beautiful story.

A lot of people have asked me what made me open up Calla Lily's and where did the
idea of Memory Lamps come from.  Well back about 6 years ago my mom and I lost a
dear family member and we talked about looking for a gift that would have timeless
memories instead of the traditional flowers that we felt was just too impersonal and
would die after a few days.  My mom has such a creative flair and with her design
background wrote a heart felt personalized poem about light and memories so then
we searched for a beautiful Tiffany Lamp to accompany the poem and found the
perfect way to gift wrap the lamp with a beautiful hand-tied bow that matched the
color of the lamp.  Both my mom and I were so touched with all the positive response
we received with the lamp that it inspired us to open a retail store and sell our
Memory Lamps to others that were looking for an alternative to sympathy gifts.  As for
our name Calla Lily's, those were the beautiful flowers that I carried on my wedding
day.

How much do you spend on a Memory Lamp.....Fortunately, we have Memory Lamps to fit almost
any budget with them starting at $35.95 for a beautiful angel tulip accent Memory Lamp to the
$335.00 Largest Tiffany Style Memory Lamp.   What is nice about our lamps is that we have over
100 styles to choose from and they range in various colors and sizes.  Our most popular
collections are the accent collection and the mini Tiffany styles.  The choice is up to you,
remember though when sending a Memory Lamp you are sending those grieving an everlasting
gift of light that they will cherish for years to come.

I often have people asking me what is the proper gift to give to someone who has just lost a loved
one. There are so many sympathy gifts out there but my favorite gift to give when one is grieving
is a Memory Lamp. Flowers are expensive and die quickly only leaving the griever another thing
to deal with throwing the flowers away. With a Memory Lamp they now have an everlasting gift
of light which they can light everyday day and think of their loved one and can even pass it down
in the family. These Memory Lamps just seem to have helped everyone I have given them to. All
my friends can't thank me enough for the beautiful gift of light in remembrance of their loved
one.

What do Butterfly's symbolize?   This a question that a lot of our customers have asked us.  
Butterfly's symbolize eternal life.  And many believe that the butterfly brings your soul to
heaven.  That is why the butterfly lamp is the most popular lamp in our Memory Lamp collection.

As I read the paper I find that my friends mom has passed away. She was a lovely lady that
always engaged in our activities. Its sad to hear that she passed at a young age. I want to do
something special for my friend to remember her mom by. Flowers just seem so average,
everybody sends them, they look the same at the funeral home no matter how much money your
spend on them. I want my friend to have a gift to remember her mom by that will last forever.
Thats when I decide to send a beautiful Memory Lamp.   The lamp I will pick will remind me of
my friends mom, always happy and cheerful, full of light and laughter, I think I will send a bright
flowery lamp. Each time my friend looks at this Memory Lamp may she have happy memories of
her loving mom.

Expressing your sympathy takes on a new light with Memory Lamps.   Many times we hear of a
friend or relative that lost a love one and we want to send a gift to help comfort them.  Why not
send an everlasting gift of light.  Memory lamps are the newest concept for those who want to
express their sympathy at a time of bereavement with an everlasting gift of light.   These
Memory Lamps offer an alternative to flowers and will be a remembrance of your loved one
every-time you light it.   These beautiful memory lamps come with a poem in a frame which can
be placed anywhere in your home in memory of your loved one.

My best friend passed away and left 2 beautiful daughters behind.  I just could not see spending
all the money of flowers that would not last long enough.  So I sent each girl a lamp to remind
them of the "light and laughter" their father had brought to my life.  I remember how much
Craig had loved the color blue, so much that he had to have blue lights on his Christmas tree
every year even though nobody else wanted the blue lights.  So when I picked out a lamp for each
of this daughters I made sure that both lamps were blue in memory of their dad Craig (my best
friend that I miss so much).
