Tracy, Marty, Don Schmidt, 1970
Me, my mom and dad, 1970

I dedicate this website to my dad, whose death inspired me to create a business that offers services to memorialize the lives of loved ones.

I have a BFA from the University of Kansas, and by trade, I’ve been a graphic designer and marketing specialist for over 20 years and a web developer since 1997. My passions include endeavoring in creative arts of all kinds, and I’m consistently building my visual reference database, researching and resolving solutions to visual communication needs of clients, friends, family and my own hobbies.

The internet has the ability to bring us closer, quickly solve our problems and also make us seem so far apart. I sincerely mean that though, like you, I work full time, have a family and friends, a home and interests that need tending to–that I’m available for you to reach out to–if you need ideas or feedback on how to create mementos and memorabilia for your lost loved ones.

As borderline ingenious as I thought I was when I first realized my passion to create this website and provide these services–I’ve come to find that there’s cultures and traditions that go back hundreds and thousands of years–to preserve humans, their remains, by-products and even organs. As I have time, I shall expect to offer additional services, and I am always open to your suggestions and custom requests. For example, I got really excited when I recently realized that I could cast into resin my children’s belly button clippings that fell off shortly after their births. Now, I realize this may gross out some/a lot of people–but, anyone who knows me, knows that I firmly believe in being open to these types of things. I’ll add belly button preservation to the website, soon 🙂 I’ve heard that back in the “early” days of battle (I’ll narrow down which battle–I’m ignorant to the history of war/s) that when a wife was notified of her husband’s death during battle, that she’d cry her tears into a vial that she’d then wear around her neck during her days of mourning. I currently sell vials that would suffice for this practice–I’ll add it as it’s own memento soon, too.

So, please know that I’m so very sorry to hear of your loss, and I take such pride and consideration when fulfilling orders! Your satisfaction and timely receipt of your mementos are very important also, so please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at any time. I’ll keep you regularly informed of each stage of your order and customizations, as well as shipping time. Thank you for taking time to read this–It’s important to me to know that you have learned why I became so passionate about this business.

Kindest Regards,
