Commemorative Rosaries Has a Solution for Those Who Have Been Ripped Off By Keepsake Rosaries

Last week posted an article about Keepsake Rosaries that appeared on The article talked about the 60+ families who have been ripped off by Keepsake Rosaries and even sited the BBB who published a reporting on the company and warned families to beware. We were contacted this week by Commemorative Rosaries, who provide similar services and products as Keepsake Rosaries, and we want to share with you what they said.

We were contacted by the owner Sandra Antablian. She wrote the following email to us, and after reading it we asked it we could share it with our readers:

Dear Ryan,

My name is Sandra Antablian, I am the owner and president of Commemorative Rosaries. Although, this is not the first time hearing this, I was saddened to read the negative article on the company Keepsake Rosaries. Over the past two years, we have received a few clients who had not been serviced properly by them.

As a legitimate rosary business, news to this caliber tends to disgrace and tarnish all businesses dealing in this field. Commemorative Rosaries has been in business for over 13 years and works with over 600 funeral homes throughout the United States and overseas. We also have a 100% customer satisfaction rate, we are active members with NFDA, FDSA and many state organizations. We make numerous donations and multiple scholarships to funeral service education.

We would appreciate the opportunity to assist the families who have been wronged by this establishment. Although we could never replace their roses, we would be happy to make a keepsake rosary or jewelry item for each family at no cost to them. It is very important to keep our reputation in good standing with people who know the importance of these keepsakes.

Should you need to contact me or my CEO Victoria, we can be reached at 847-299-4899 Mon-Fri 10am-5pm. You may also visit our website at

We we very surprised at the offer from Sandra and applaud her generosity. Please let us know if you contact Commemorative Rosaries and share with us your experience.
