Premier Trimmed Coffins

In some varieties of orthodox Judaism, the coffin must be plain, made of wood, and contain no metal parts nor adornments. These coffins use wooden pegs instead of nails. In China and Japan, coffins made from the scented, decay-resistant wood of cypress, sugi, thuja and incense-cedar are in high demand.

I just wanted to tell you that we laid my brother to rest on Sunday afternoon, and everyone thought the casket was beautiful. (Even the grounds people, as they lowered the casket into the ground, commented on it.)

It was *exactly* what was needed. Thanks again to you and your husband for helping to make what was a very sad occasion a bit easier on us all.
