  Nick's Urn


My dear friend from college lost her son Nick on January 4, 2012.  She decided to use a piece of pottery I gave her many years ago as the urn for his ashes.  This unfortunate situation in her life has given me the opportunity to re-connect and catch up with my dear friend Nancy.  I had the privilege of attending his memorial service on February 25th.  This service was a fantastic transformational celebration of his life.  He was a truly gifted and well loved young man.  I deeply regret that I never had the chance to meet him.

I am very touched and honored that she chose my piece as the vessel for his ashes.
