Thank you for your service.

My earliest childhood recollection of a "hero" is a firefighter. It is common for young boys and girls--as soon one is able to play with a toy fire truck--to love and appreciate the men and women in fire and rescue professions.

Love. Respect. Honor. Pride.

To those men and women who dedicate their lives to the safety of others, I thank you. Coming to our rescue when we need it most. I myself recall with great detail the comfort and safety I felt in the touch of the first fireman to help me, laying on a highway in Texas, in the dark, severely injured, the victim of a car accident.

Inspired by the hook and ladder fire engines of the 1930s, this casket displays a hard maple ladder along both sides in lieu of a handle. The interior is soft all-natural cotton muslin. Hand-painted by my Dad, Jim, with two coats bright red real milk paint, sealed with pure tung oil, and hand-buffed to a beautiful shine with clear carnauba wax.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” 
― Mahatma Gandhi
