I work at a funeral home and we keep prints of all the body’s that come in for our records. We can also put a finger print fo the deceased on jewelry and memorabilia for the family members.

I’m a funeral director and I do exactly this! I wonder if our paths have crossed… I’m so glad someone appreciates it.

A nurse i knew had done this for her kids and put into a locket. They also have some pretty cool urns now where you can add the ashes of loved one in it.
