I have a friend whom I haven’t seen in 45 – 50 years, but through social media, communicate occasionally.. Very recently he lost his little pup, long time friend and companion, Gizmo. Having Gizmo cremated, I thought I would surprise Bruce with a gift he could cherish along with his memories. The urn was received today. Bruce was overwhelmed to say the least and was crying like a baby when he called to express his gratitude

Being able to use my meager skills to make the world a better place, if only for the two of us, is something I will always treasure. My day is complete.

What a sad thing to be making. I reckon it must be something so sentimental for you to create a module to hold your loved ones ashes. I wouldn’t really know what to think if it came down to storage of such precious cargo. Hope that the poor baby rests in peace.

You did a beautiful job on the urn and it was so thoughtful and caring of you to build it for him. I just joined Lumberjocks.com a couple months ago and am finally starting to get familiar with the site and ran across your project and posting. Our pets are family and thanks for sharing your skills and thoughtfulness. We lost our 14 year old Shealtie last year and after his loss we eased the pain by getting another little girl Shealtie.
