Memory lamps are a creative and expressive sympathy gift to show your love and to send your thoughts to friends and family. Electric memory lamps are a modern-day alternative to lighting a candle in honor of a loved one that has passed, with the light of the lamp offering the same warmth, sentiment and prayer as a traditional candle. Memory lamps often include stained glass or a small inscription with a memory or epitaph.
What is a Memory Lamp?
Traditionally, to "light a candle for someone" indicates one's intention to say a prayer for another person with the candle symbolizing that prayer. A memory lamp carries these same sentiments, but uses a more modern delivery method. Using a light bulb instead of a candle, they are a light-filled remembrance and tribute to a cherished existence and are often given as bereavement gifts or purchased to commemorate a loved one who has passed.
Historically, candles and flames have honored those lost in a meaningful and important way. From the eternal flame remembering President Kennedy at Arlington National Cemetery to the small, delicate flames in many places of worship, light has great significance and is both healing and a great comfort during times of loss. With a memory lamp, you can bring healing light into your own home, on your own terms. The electric lamps are affordable, safe to use and easy to operate. Choose a lamp that's meaningful to you or give one as a gift to a friend that is grieving.
