Remembering Special Days
Birthdays and death anniversaries can be very difficult days for anyone grieving the loss of a loved one. We created the Ellie’s Way “Remembering Special Days” program to provide comfort and encouragement on these important days. Remembering is EVERYTHING because memories are all we have.
Here’s what you you will receive as part of this program:
An online memorial of your loved one that you can share with friends and family. There are over (1,400) memorials in our Remembering Special Days directory.
We will send you an encouraging message on your special days (your loved one’s birthday and angelversary).
NOTE – If you would like to add multiple loved ones, please use an alternate e-mail for each. Our system currently only accommodates one loved one per associated e-mail address.
Please SHARE with anyone who has lost a loved one!

“How God works through sweet precious Ellie and her father who has been given a heart to serve. I know that Ellie would be smiling and love overflowing, knowing how others are being comforted, strengthened and encouraged through her huge heart and example to all of us. I pray that as you continue to wholeheartedly seek God and His will for Ellie’s Way, He will transform many more lives in unimaginable ways. With love and gratitude for your family.”

I cried even more when I saw the necklace and stone with my son’s picture in it. Its unbelievably PRECIOUS and means so very much to me. I don’t know how to thank you enough. I wore my necklace for Christmas day and everyone LOVED and asked where I got it. I told them all how special this organization is. Thank you thank you so very much from the bottom of my HEART.”
“We received our package today! I want to thank you so much, it touched our hearts forever. My daughter Ellie thought it was for her because it had her name on it. I explained why it had Ellie’s name on it, and she started to cry. I (We) will cherish this forever. God Bless you!”

“I do not know how to thank you. Today was a difficult day, full of emotions, sadness and the question of why. Upon arriving home from a crazy day of work and the endless emotional rollercoaster, I now call my norm, I was presented with Ellie’s Care Package. Inside I looked into the most beautiful eyes of a face of an angel, and beside her face I see many keepsakes of my son. Sometimes timing means a lot and today the package arrived in a time I needed it the most. After the insert about Ellie, I thought I was reading the life of my son. It brought tears, but at the same time an overwhelming comfort to see others walking this road and showing so much love kindness and support. Thank you so much, it made a difference!”
“This care package is awesome. When it comes and you open and see all the things inside, it makes you sad and happy at the same time! I am thankful that there are people like you around and even though you are going through a loss, you have the strength to help others. Bless you and your angel. Thank you again!”
“Look what I got today! This necklace is the BEST! Thank you guys so much for an absolutely incredible idea. What a great way to raise money for Ellie’s Way while helping others heal. It is beautiful!!! Thank you both for your continued ministry.”

“I received my care package today and I was speechless. What I found inside of the box when I opened it brought me to tears. What you do in memory of your sweet Ellie is amazing. She is looking down on you both with a big smile on her face. I cannot ‘thank you’ enough.”
“I love this. I lost my two kids in a fire in May of 2011. My baby girl was 4 and my baby boy was 2. It was so hard to let them go and it’s still hard now but I try to stay strong since God decided to bless us with another baby 3 months after they went to heaven. People like us that had to lose our babies need support. Thank you. God bless!”
“I was taken back by how phenomenal this package was! You guys are truly amazing! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
“Ellie’s Way has been built with love! After hearing of Ellie’s Way, I have gained so much knowledge and support that is crucial to my grieving process. I have also been able to share everyone’s experience, strength and hope with my children. They really care! Thank you Ellie’s Way!”
