My experience with the Living Urn and Mike has been so positive and rewarding that we now have a tree planted with my husbands cremains on the golf course right outside our fence line on the 17th fairway. I can see the tree from every window at the back of the house. Because we were planting on a golf course, we needed to plant a sustainable tree, one that would stand up to the rigors of golfers, carts, and balls coming from various directions. My husband, George, was not an avid golfer but he was an avid gardener and spent many happy hours in our yard overlooking the 17th fairway. The golf course GM knew which house was ours because he recalled how well maintained our yard always was and how my husband was always out there puttering. The golf course could not have been more cooperative and supportive once I explained about The Living Urn and what I planned for my husband's cremains. On September 8, 2016, we planted an October Red Maple with George's cremains. The funeral director came to the house and prepared the urn which was not a difficult thing to do. The directions were very clear and the biodegradable urn was large enough to contain the cremains, the mixture, and the topsoil. I have attached pictures from the planting. The golf course invited us to participate in the planting so our children and I were able to actually place the urn with the tree root ball. It was a very moving experience and was attended by the immediate family, some close friends and a few neighbors. On September 18, 2016, we had a celebration of life at the golf club and shared the experience with the individuals who attended via a slide show presentation, still pictures, and comments explaining what The Living Urn is and the alternatives for cremains it offers. I can't tell you how comforting it is to look out each day and see the tree, knowing George is part of a new life. I will watch the tree as it grows straight, and tall, and strong, just like my husband, George! Thank you!
