In today’s Lola cartoon, Lola is sitting on a bench reading a newspaper while sitting next to her “boyfriend” Harry. She reads something of interest and says, “Wow. This company will take the ashes of a loved one and compress them into a diamond you can wear.”
“You wanna be earrings or a pendant?” she says to Harry. “I feel fine, thank you,” he replies.
Yes, it’s true, there are a number of companies that will take the cremated remains of a loved one and make gemstones out of them. I have done YouTube videos at ICCFA convention expos with the LifeGem and Mevisto companies about the process. Look for new videos next week, from the 2014 ICCFA convention in Las Vegas, Nevada!
And there here’s another Death Cartoon: Sunny Street features a guy yelling, “April Fool’s!!!” In the next panel, you see that he has jumped up from lying in a casket and everyone at the funeral does not find his prank funny in the least. Some joke…
