Honoring the life of a cowboy…

This past week we were honored to serve a cowboy and the family had special instructions for us to follow!  They were able to bring in his branding iron that he used on his ranch to brand the casket.  The casket they chose for him was made of Barn Wood and the branding was the way to personalize the casket.

We love to see personalization in funerals and there are many creative ways to achieve this.  My hopes through this post is that you will see that possibilities go as far as you can imagine and we are always proud to help in achieving this!
