Ryan & Robin Elephant Fund

Ryan & Robin Elephant Fund

Years ago, an expectant mother picked out the names for her unborn child - Ryan for a boy and Robin for a girl. Sadly, this mom experienced the loss of her baby. The grieving mother wanted to make sure families who suffer the loss of an infant at any stage of pregnancy would leave Lima Memorial with something special to remember their child. A stuffed elephant was symbolically chosen because an elephant never forgets.

This mother partnered with the Lima Memorial Foundation to establish The Ryan and Robin Elephant Fund. Gifts designated to support this fund ensure every life, no matter how short, is recognized and acknowledged. Each family who experiences a loss will receive a gift basket with a stuffed elephant and a blanket, as well as a Recognition of Life certificate. Information on ways to cope with the loss of a child is also included. A donation to support the Ryan and Robin Elephant Fund will help parents never forget.
