Power of Personalization: Tulip Bouquet for Aunt Gennie

Gennie Stegall

Virginia "Gennie" Ruth Stegall

May 1, 1945September 14, 2019 

With heavy hearts, we created a tulip bouquet urn for our sweet Aunt Gennie. 

She was an Earth Angel who bravely fought Parkinson's for over 25 years... without complaint, without self pity, without a harsh word spoken. She grew beautiful gardens and amazing children. 

We'll miss her humble nature, her sweet giggle, her kind heart and beautiful soul. Virginia Ruth you truly are one of God's most precious.

Power of Personalization: Custom Columbarium Niche Box

 


A local woman near us was looking to have a custom box to fit a Columbarium Niche for her family.  Her brother had passed away years ago in 1980, and his ashes were at rest at a cemetery in California.  This past Christmas, their mother passed away. 

The remaining siblings decided to place mom's ashes with their bother.  They needed a special box to fit the 10" x 5" x 11" space, personalized with both their names, dates, and epitaphs.

We hand-built this ceramic box to fit the space....engraving it exactly as they wished with their family name large and set between their two individual names, and a small cross in the middle.

Power of Personalization: Captain Lived Life 'His Way'


For an Alabama Coast Shrimp Boat Capt’n…who lived and loved fully, unabashedly, his own way. These shrimp boat urns were handmade in his honor, for each of his three sisters.




Made for a local friend, Kathy, and her family...she would tell stories of her brother Doug's adventures and trials, big wins and pitfalls. Doug was known for his kind heart and unconventional style. The last boat he owned was fittingly named, "My Way".

May he rest in peace.

The Power of Personalization: Custom Orcas for Arval




 
For 7 years, Rob worked side-by-side with Sandra in the front lab at Dallas Nephrology Associates. Sandra was his direct supervisor, a mentor, a surrogate mom, and a good friend. During those years, she was a daily source of wisdom, encouragement and humor for him.

Recently, Sandra contacted us and asked for us to create an Orca Whale for her brother, Arval.  He always love Killer Whales and their symbology of family, longevity, harmony, community and protection.

We created a large wall-mounted piece for Arval's wife and family....and a smaller whale memorial for Sandra to keep.  We feel honored to make these pieces for him and their family.

Recently we drove up to Dallas to deliver them to her in person. It has been over 10 years since we moved from Dallas and Rob left his job at DNA.  It was so awesome to see Sandra and her family, have some laughs and catch up on life.

She and her family have started a small business selling handmade soaps, lotions, and other scented oil products.  She treated us to samples of their products and Rob became a big fan of the Whisky Woodshop Beard Oil!  Check out, A Handful of Bubbles....www.ahandfulofbubbles.com

She Was Pure Sunshine




Doris June Forsythe

January 4, 1931 - April 2, 2015


Over the last month, we had the profound experience of caring for Jamaica's grandmother, Doris June, as she made her transition from this Earth. Cancer went mis/undiagnosed and by the time she received an official diagnosis, it had spread into her lymphatic system and spine...hospice arrived that same day.
For 22 days we were able to care for her and tell her how much we love her- although short, we appreciate that time and opportunity. She was pure sunshine and joy to all who knew her and she will be deeply missed. 
Many thanks to our buddy, Stephen, at Star of Texas Casket Company for collaborating with us on her sentimental and personalized Cedar casket. It was beautiful and we know she would have loved the special touches carved into it for her. Rest in peace, sweet Doie, your legacy of love, faith and laughter lives on in your children, grand and great.
