Celebrants like to give memorial items to all attendees to take home as a remembrance of the deceased. With the growing number of life celebrations (as opposed to funerals), the Vilmain gift company came to the NFDA convention to offer funeral directors pocket charms and tokens that could make special remembrance items.
Tokens include angels, crosses, Buddhas, Stars of David, peace signs, peace doves, supportive sayings, and New Age and Celtic symbols. The tokens are engravable, so a name, initials or date could be engraved on the back.
Also displayed were angel ornament keepsakes, treasure boxes, and other remembrance gifts. The company also makes smaller pocket charms, place card holders, magnets, jewelry and home accents.
Zane Sodeur, a first-time exhibitor at NFDA, describes the line of products she displayed at the expo. Learn more at www.Vilmain.com.
