Power of Personalization: The love story of "Chip" Stickers Guitar

 



"I met Jon in the summer of 2003.  The first day I met him he had Chip with him.  In fact every time I hung out with him in the beginning of our relationship Chip was with him.  Jon went to another place every single time he played.  Music was his Heaven on earth.  As like turned into love I began to leave my mark on Chip in the form of stickers.  When I truly knew I loved Jon I started placing stickers on Chip while Jon played.  The first was the tie-dyed heart.  I can still remember the look on Jon's face.  It was breathtaking.  I knew he was in love too.  Days turned to months.  About 5 years into our relationship it was time to retire Chip.  He had gotten old and the sound was just not the same anymore.  Jon got a new guitar.  Every time we looked at Chip we referred to him as "our love story".  We could clearly remember the nights we spent together getting to know each other and falling deeper and deeper in love.  8 years later we were married.  We always thought of Chip and had intended on having him framed and displayed on the wall as a testimony of our love for each other.  When Jon tragically passed away at the age of 35, I wanted him to go off with music.  He had 4 guitars in our home.  2 were guitars he played, 1 was our guestbook at our wedding and the other was "our love story".  Our son did not want to part with the guitars that daddy played so...I sent Jon with Chip.  I took lots of pictures of Chip.  I was devastated.  I then found Awesome Urns.  They recreated Chip as an urn for my husband's remains.  I truly can think of no better resting place for Jon than inside our love story.  The urn is perfect.  It is exquisite and precisely what I was looking for.  I can never thank you enough for the sense of solace you have given me during this time of grief."

    "Rusty Hubcap" Michael crafted Cigar Box Guitars.  His wife sent us a photo of one of his favorite pieces.  Based off the photo, we recreated this piece in his memory.  The unique soundplate was a challenging and cool element that made his memorial urn truly one-of-a-kind.

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: 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.

Power of Personalization: Stock Car for The Margarita Lady


We were honored again to create a custom piece for the Flickinger Family.  This piece makes the third urn they've asked us to make.  We were touched that they entrusted us to help them memorialize Mom this time.

Wanda loved dirt track, stock car racing. A long time fan, she was known as "The Margarita Lady" to her racing friends, and had expressed that wanting a stock car urn when it came her time. We based the design from pictures sent of a Modified race car of her favorite driver, Wendell Wallace's #88 of Batesville, AR.


We hand delivered this piece to her family, who were happy with how the piece turned out and how perfect it was for Wanda.

Artists' Thoughts: Butterfly for Baby Vienna


We're sometimes overcome by significance of this memorial art and what it means for others. We take it so seriously, that it has it's moments of overwhelm with our desire to always do our best and meet any expectations the customer has...

 ...then we stop and take a deep breath.

We reflect on our purpose and give thanks for opportunities... to be a positive force, bringing comfort to others through our work... it's powerful, it's humbling, it's heartbreaking, it's beautifully human... it's love.


From our first communication with the Theriaque Family, we were so touched by their open hearts and kind words....







We worked with them to create a unique butterfly urn to remember their little girl.  They chose design elements that they wanted represented.....the size, positioning, colors and engraving inscription.

The result, a sweet, precious cremation urn for Baby Vienna....


Upon receiving her urn...


















...And our hearts are full.

In gratitude ~ MorzArt

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."

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.

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
