Preserving the clothing memories of the deceased

Project Repat makes it easy to preserve t-shirts and clothing by turning it into a t-shirt quilt. Since 2012, Project Repat has sold more than 12,000 quilts, many to familiy members who have recently lost a loved one. One of the most difficult decisions for a family member is to decide what to do with the clothing that the deceased has left behind. Too often, that clothing remains in the closet because the loved one can't bear to get rid of the memories.

OFDA Convention A Success

Linda and I had a fantastic time at the Ohio Funeral Directors 130th Convention. The booth traffic was constant almost throughout the entire three days. After last year's exhibiting schedule and the concomitant inconveniences of business travel this year is going to be quieter on that front, but the OFDA Convention is truly an expo not to be missed.

Thanks to the staff and officers of OFDA for putting on such a successful event for the exhibitors.

ICCFA at Virginia Funeral Directors Association Convention

The most recent stop on ICCFA's tour of the states was right in our backyard at the Virginia Funeral Directors Association Convention in Roanoke. (Well not most recent, as I am actually writing this from Kentucky, but blog-time is close to catching up with real time).
