Hi everyone, my name is Peter Holly. I am interested in teach others about the various urn and casket options on the market today. I would also like to explore the history of the creation and display of urns and caskets. When my father died, I took a long time to select the best urn for display on my mantle. I wanted to hold the ashes in a creation that encapsulated the personality of my father. I eventually selected a small wooden box with a cherry finish and bronze accents. If my father had wanted a burial instead, it probably would have taken even longer to select the best casket. There are just so many interior finishes available in addition to all of the exterior designs. Please come by often for assistance in finding your best urn or casket options.
