Susanne’s own words:
I was very engaged and involved in the arrangement of my dad’s funeral. When we were going to select an urn I thought that everything felt impersonal and it was as though time had stood still. It felt as if I was looking at the same urns that we buried my grandparents in approximately 30 years earlier. My dad loved life and his family and for me his funeral, including selecting the right urn, was about how to best honor his life.
TELLUS Urn was born in the instant when I said farewell to my beloved dad and my vision and hope for this unique concept is to create a universal and personal urn ceremony and internment concept. The farewell is such an important ceremony and I want that sentiment to permeate the entire concept.
The thought of me holding this mission I received from my dad in trust – and that it hopefully can help others to create a light and beautiful farewell of a loved one – feels immensely meaningful.
