“I recently had two friends lose their beloved pets. I was so grateful that I was able to give them the “Parting Tails” boxes in their time of grief. It was such a beautiful and unique way for them to process their loss. Both were very touched.”

“I read the book and loved it. I believe it will be helpful and healing to someone who has just lost or is in the process of losing a pet. The book described how I felt after losing my fur baby. It’s a great way to help others get through their difficult loss!”

"My Parting Tails gift box was a sight for sore eyes, literally. Nothing could take away the pain I felt from losing my best friend, my dog Lyla, but this gift box was quite helpful, I have to admit. It allowed me to continue to focus on my grief, but in what turned out to be a very positive way for me. I think there’s something in that box for everyone, and I highly recommend it to anyone experiencing the profound pain of losing a pet. Generic Messages and condolences don’t really help — this does. Most importantly, I think Lyla would be happy about it. "

"I just gave a dear friend a gift box for the loss of her dog. It contains a booklet to guide the person in processing the loss through journaling, seeds to plant in honor of the pet, and other items. I wanted to share this in case you know someone who needs support and comfort after the loss of a pet. Thank you, Andrea, for this creation. It's lovely."
