ERIC

Eric: The Inspiration Behind Our Best-Selling Memorial Tealight Holders

 

Eric's memory lives on through our best-selling memorial tealight holders. His passing in 2019, a victim of a hit-and-run accident, deeply impacted our family and continues to hold a special place in our hearts. We find solace in honoring him daily while offering comfort to others in their journey of grief.

 

 

Our tealight holders serve as a source of solace, meant to be lit during moments of remembrance and to cherish the beautiful memories shared. Whether on anniversaries or when seeking closeness to a beloved pet, they offer comfort and warmth.

 

 

In the wake of Eric's passing, we discovered "Cats Matter UK," an organisation dedicated to advocating for feline welfare on roads. Partnering with them, we created a range of merchandise in Eric's name, including t-shirts, jumpers, keyrings, and window stickers, with proceeds supporting Cats Matter UK's noble cause.
