Our John (Dad, Papa) was a special person who was always giving. Whether it was volunteering his time at the local homeless shelter, being “Santa’s helper” at a nearby mall, or shoveling snow from elderly neighbors walkways during storms, he was always there to lend a helping hand.
It’s the idea of giving back that he instilled in me and his four other children (and eight grandchildren) that led us to all agree that the perfect memorial for our Dad would be a living tree memorial. We held a planting ceremony and everybody participated – this brought a feeling of joy at a very difficult time. Now he’s a beautiful evergreen and will keep on giving back – something we know he would of wanted.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making such a beautiful product that gives families like ours a beautiful memorial.
I wanted to write a brief note of thanks. My son passed tragically over Easter weekend and it was unexpected. We miss him dearly. The bio urn that grows a tree was what he wanted and that is what we did. I called customer service a week after he passed and your staff couldn’t have been more helpful. We now have a tree growing in his honour just steps from our backfence. We miss him dearly but this provides a great place we can visit with him and cherish our time together. Thank you for this.
Bill was a friend for 40+ years. He would spend every holiday with our family ever since his wife passed about 10 years ago and since he had didn’t have any other family to speak of. He was a great person but unfortunatley had a long battle with bone cancer and passed earlier this year. He wanted to be cremated and wanted to be one with nature in the form of a tree, but struggled because he didn’t know where to plant it. Before he passed, my wife and I visited him at the hospital and let him know that we would be happy to plant his tree memorial in our yard. Bill passed shortly after that visit, and now we’re able to visit with him and enjoy his great red maple tree memorial.
I wanted to write you and thank you for providing our family with happiness and the perfect memorial for our Mom. She loved red roses and when I heard that they could be planted with a living urn, I knew it was perfect for Mom. Now there’s a red rose bush growing from the urn containing her ashes. It’s lovely. Thank you thank you.
