I wanted to share with you our story of our Mother’s funeral and how you helped us really personalize that experience.
First off, I would like to say how pleased we were with the casket we purchased from you. It was beautifully crafted and everyone commented how nice it was.
When I delivered it to the funeral home in Montevideo, the funeral director informed me he had not previously had anyone furnish their own casket and didn’t have materials on hand to line it, etc. He offered to get the materials and do it for us, but we kids decided we wanted to do it. We bought 4’x8’x2” Styrofoam sheets which we cut to fit in the bottom, my sister and Dad bought some quilt batting and we then lined the casket on top of all of this with one of Mom’s favorite bed spreads. The funeral director then partially covered Mom with a quilt that my sister had made for her. It turned out beautiful.
I believe that this personal involvement in the whole process was very good for our family in saying goodbye to Mom. I know it sure helped make it easier for me. My Dad thought the casket you made was beautiful and said that he wants one just like it when his time to leave this earth comes. I promised him he will have one, so I hope you keep making them.
Thanks again Roger, keep up the good work.
