Dearest Jim,

I am honored and so moved that you took the time and thought to write to me about your beautiful Mother’s passing. I am so grateful to have heard about her wonderful Spirit through my friendship with you, and you have been blessed exponentially to have a Mother such as her. What a gorgeous Soul, and from all I can tell without knowing her personally, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree in character. You are such a blessed man in so many ways, and I’m sure so many of your gifts came from a direct relationship with a heart such as hers. What a truly beautiful family you have, and I look forward to viewing the video of her life (I’m just seeing this e-mail now, so I’ll take the time tonight to experience this). Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing her legacy with me…. I am privileged to be a part of this.

I am so excited for you…. and for this beautiful synchronicity with you and the funding for saving the earth with your seaweed project!! Truly amazing!!! I mean, so auspicious, and esoteric…. that your Mother didn’t go until this came to life for you, and for the rest of us. I am profoundly honored to have the privilege of having you in my life in such beautiful ways…. and I am so deeply excited for where you life’s work is going. You are a true hero…. to so many. I adore you immensely, and value your Sacred work, and your Sacred Presence.

I send you and your loving family the most immense love as your Mother makes her transition from Life to Life. The Great Beyond…. where she is one with her Truth, and so beloved by so many.

With a heart full of love, blessings, deepest peace, and overflowing gratitude,

Lori and Lucas

What a joy it has been to have known GiGi and share many good laughs and talks. It was so much fun reminiscing about Fond du Lac and Wisconsin. We will miss her a lot but we all know that she is in a much happier place. Mary & Steve Vogds

My earliest memories are of Christmas time in Glen Ellyn with all our extended family. Aunt Eleanor has been a constant presence through the years. She is well remembered and will be deeply missed.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
