I think Dad would have liked it

I lost my father very suddenly this past Monday,
my family asked if I would make the box to hold his ashes.
I told them I would be honored to do so,
and it also helped to have something productive to focus on.

Exterior box is Medium Cherrywood Ply.
Interior box is Medium Clear Green Acrylic.
Engraved on the outside of the Acrylic box are the words to my Dad’s favorite hymn.
The interior of the Cherrywood box has pictures engraved on all sides,
including the lid, of the kids and grandkids.
The bottom is lined with black felt.

The future for this ash keepsake box
is to live in a place of remembrance in his home
with his surviving spouse.

Unexpectedly lost my mom nearly 3 years ago now (time truly does fly by…) and I’ve still yet to make the tribute I planned on making. Sorry for your loss, and a beautiful resting place for your father.
