" The end of friendships, the loss of family members. It would be
wonderful to think that death allow for the best of this world to carry
onto the next. We certainly hope this is the case for our departed loved
ones. It seems only fitting that we surround those departed with the best
and finest this world has to offer. A final token of friendship, love
The end of one journey. The beginning of the next. A path of unknown length
and incalculable hardships between."
Matched Pair of Walking Sticks

First, I’ll offer up a pair of fine strong walking sticks,
in the hopes of diminishing the burdens of that unknown path. Two
walking sticks so that you may invite a friend or stranger to accompany
you along the way to lessen the loneliness and renew your spirit.

Secondly, I’ll offer up finely crafted vessels of wood and

on that path to the new journey.

What else will accompany you? What will comfort you to and on your
next journey? I think we all suspect there is little we can take
with us. Maybe we could take knowledge or understanding or compassion.
Perhaps, but most of all I think we would want to take memories.
Good luck, good fortune and fare weather.
