Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Our neighbour passed away recently, a good friend of ours who suffered through his third bout of cancer and did not make it.  His family had a rough time with his illness, and dealing with the funeral.  He was cremated, and they asked DH and his friend to build them something to hold his ashes in.  So they built a small casket for him, out of cedar with a relief of Mary and baby Jesus on it with other woods.  I think he would have liked it - he loved the smell of cedar, and his faith gave him a lot of comfort over the years.



I have no idea why this one is turning out sideways like this, it's not oriented like this on my site!

That is absolutely beautiful and touching. I love that the image of the Blessed Virgin and Christ Child is simple, yet so intricate at the same time.

I think they are called urns even if they aren't vase looking.

That's so beautiful and well done. I'm sure it will bring a lot of comfort to the family knowing that someone who loved him made something so personal for him to rest in. Beautiful.

How beautiful!  So meaningful for them, a touching tribute from your DH!  Truly a neighborly act of love!

Please give your DH a hug from me, and tell him thanks for doing such a wonderful thing.   Cry Cheesy
