I hope you all won't think me too morbid with this, and I promise to post again later today.
My brother in law stunned us all with his choice of caskets for my sister... instead of an over-priced metal shell... he ordered a casket from here, the monks of New Melleray Abbey, in Peosta, Iowa. The great thing about this choice is that it is a sustainable product, and the monks plant a tree for each person remembered this way, so that in time, that new tree can supply another person who passes on. They are very beautiful, and here is my sister's (I hope not too morbid). It was truly beautiful.
By the way... I teased my sister a lot, and she told me she was going to come back and haunt me. Trying to write this post, I literally had to log in THREE times.... before I could get the post to complete and the picture to show.
Way to go, Little Sis!
