Why Name a brick when you can name a star?
It's a beautiful idea, and people love it.
I bought this star in memory of my son's girlfriend...little did I know her father and brother were into astronomy and were also thrilled by it!
Although I DO realize that I can't actually name a star, it helps those that I love to be able to look into the night sky and see their loved one shining down on them. It has been very comforting to several friends who have lost loved ones lately.
I think it is a wonderful service. My Mom was so touched by the star we bought for my late father and the one we bought for her in the same constellation.
This is a great way to remember someone by and to let others know the love you have so I would just like to say thank you.
This was in memory of my son that passed away just a few min. After being born.
They were a pleasure to work with. They helpmed me with 2 memorial stars, one for my husband who recently passed away and one for my baby daughter who passed 15 years ago. I explained that I wanted them to be close to another and they happily obliged. It was comforting to know that I had support during a very difficult time for me. I would definitely recommend them.
My Dad passed away a year ago and it has been extremely difficult, this was a way to remember him and honor him on the year anniversary. I purchased this and my and I did this together, it meant so much to her and everything that went along with this deal is awesome! We will be framing the certificate. It will be like my Dad is up there watching over us! Thank you! Anonymous
A wonderful way to create a memorial to a lost loved one.
It was a meaningful way to memorialize a loved one, and something concrete for kids. We spread the word on facebook and many others were intrigued. It also came very quickly and on the actual day we were commemorating! Very beautiful, official-sounding, and imaginative.
This was a unique gift for my brother who has been an astronomy photographer for many years but now has a brain tumor. The certificate is mostly 'honorary' since I am not sure any real body recognizes these names for any official purpose. It just seemed a fitting gift.
It was the most fantastic gift I have ever given. I got the charts, and all the info so quickly, and the family I gave it to said it was the best present they could ever hope for, A star for their dearly deceased son.
I purchased this for my parents and named the star in memory of my brother who passed away March 2007. My parents were touched by this gift for my parents.
LOVED this deal!!!!! I bought five of them. Two were for a dear friend who lost his brother and niece and to see the look on his face when he opened this was AMAZING!!!! Truly AWESOME gift idea!
a friends baby passed away and i purchased this for her as a memorial gift so she can always look up and see her baby's star shining for her. she absolutely loved it, and i am very grateful to be able to find such a deal and cheer her up all thanks to living social! thank you! cant wait for my next deal! =)

I named a star in memory of a loved one. It gives me a lot of comfort to look up to the heavens and be reminded of her. I also recently have one as a gift to my daughter's favorite teacher after his mom passed. I thought it would be a great way for him and his children to look up at the star and share memories of her. Such a unique and wonderful thing to own or give

It's a great tie in for people who are looking for something different
Even if ashes are scattered to the wind every life should be memorialized, and a star is a great memorial.
This is a great service. When my sister passed away I got a star named after her. I often try to look for it in the night sky. When my dad passed away last year my bfriend got me a star in honour of my dad. It is the one next to my sister. A great way to remember and honour the people you miss the most.

I dedicated a star for my husband on his first Birthday in Heaven. He was my soulmate, the love and light of my life. I lost him to Cancer after a very long two year battle. He died way too young and went through suffering that no human being should ever have to endure. He is my bright shining star up in the Heavens now, and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate his first Birthday without us.

I am buying a star for our sweet Shih-Tzu who passed away after almost 18 wonderful years. We love you Cupcake!
Last night our 10 year old grandson lost his other grand father. This man was a gentle, devoted grandfather who dearly loved his family. In trying to come up with a way of honoring him, for Coles sake, Cassie came across this star idea. Once a star is named, they never rename it and it goes into a registry. She named the star "Rollie's Love". Cole will have a framed star chart with the star circled in red and the coordinates to locate it. He will also have a framed certificate with the star name on it. Now, when he looks at that star he will forever be reminded of the light his "Unca" brought to his life.
