The Power of Personalization: Twin Pedal Steels


pedal steel guitar cremation urns

For sisters, a pair of matching pedal steel guitar urns for a Florida dad and musician.  They are engraved, "LGH Our Humble Hero" with dates on the sides.

His daughters chose to incorporate several sentimental elements...hunter green, for the green steel guitar their dad built himself...checkerboard pattern, for his love of chess...and the Emmons logo because he was friends with Buddy Emmons.

They shared with us a sweet story about the value he held in serving others through acts of kindness, and his encouragement for others to do the same.

His daughter shared:

"Our father left a beautiful legacy, which I would love to share with you, to give you an idea of what our Daddy was like. He was very political, and very much a smart aleck, but a big, soft, lovable teddy bear, too. A couple of local news stations did stories about his legacy. Please take a moment to view...and pass this information along to others, to continue spreading the love."

An appreciation for uniqueness...Mom's Handwriting





"I finally found the perfect placement for my mom’s ashes. It’s unique and beautiful just like her. If you know me well then you know I love creativity, personalization and have an appreciation for uniqueness... if you knew my mom then you know where I got it! 🖤 @awesome.urns was so amazing to work with and made this process not only a little easier but also very special and individual. #momshandwriting #beautiful #unique #perfectlyimperfect"  - April W.

Inspiration Found: "Sing Me Back Home"





It's important to us to keep mindful of the gravity of bereavement art...to find empathy for each family we are serving. In order to feel more connected, we like to search for obituaries of those who are remembered with our art. We want to know the stories of their lives, for which, we sometimes cry and are often humbled.

With this guitar YURN, the family wanted the quote "Sing Me Back Home" engraved on his memorial.  We found this gentleman's obituary which mentioned his YouTube channel. We enjoyed listening to his music as we worked on his memorial. It was a great find to hear his cover of Merle Haggard's "Sing Me Back Home"....what special memories and music that he left for his family.
