My mother passed away last fall at the age of 94.
This is her urn and a few mementos for family.
The photo was taken when she was a stage actress and singer in the thirties.
Forever young.

It’s so hard to lose a parent. My mother died three years ago. From time to time, I have to stop myself from picking up the phone to ask how she’s doing. Your mother was a beautiful lady. The urn is a masterpiece. I love how you slide the top over and then lock it, rather than using screws. Very classy and a nice touch.
Take care…...

Simply wonderful Paul, and obviously a work of love. None of the beautiful and elegant details have escaped me. This is a perfect way to honor your Mother’s memory and to include other family members in your tribute..

Very very nice! This is a project that certainly much more of a special meaning than any other.
94 is a good age and I would gladly sign that contract if I would remain healthy.
