Tender Tears web site will be temporaily unavailable beginning March 5, 2014. Back in a few weeks and sorry for the inconvience.
The idea for Tender Tears Comfort Gifts came out of my own frustration. When a loved one dies, I so want to comfort the grieving family and friends. I want to give them something that has meaning and may be useful long after the funeral. Flowers are the standard option, but they wilt and die. Plants can become a burden for the family to care for and usually when received the family is still in a state of shock and not aware of the gift. Not finding the right expression for my condolences, I started to put together comfort boxes with specially selected items that show compassion, support and love. Receivers of the comfort boxes were deeply touched. I was encouraged to make these boxes available for all.
Thus was Tender Tears born.
I hope you find these boxes meaningful and an extension of your own caring heart.
