I was inspired to start Ultimo Gifts shortly after my dad's battle with leukemia came to an end. As my mom, sister, and I were sorting through his things, we came across some letters he had written for each of us before he died. In his letter to me, he wrote, among other things, of his love for me, how proud he was of me, and his continued hopes and dreams for my future. Being able to read his words after his passing had and continues to have a profound impact on me. With Ultimo, I hope to provide people an avenue to impact their loved ones even after they themselves have passed on.
