I cannot believe that I am just hearing about this company and their awesome product! Holy Smoke LLC will take the remains of your loved ones and load them into shotgun, rifle, or handgun cartridges of your choice. And not just one or two but 250 of them!
From the website:
Individuals finally have an alternative opportunity to celebrate their lives through their final arrangements.
The services provided by Holy Smoke are a cost effective memorial for your outdoors person.
The ecological footprint caused by our service, as opposed to most of the current funeral interment methods, is virtually non-existent.
We now offer you the opportunity to prearrange your celebration of life with Holy Smoke. Having your wishes outlined and arranged in advance helps your family members through an emotional time.
Prearrangement allows you and your family to decide together and share in your choices, to preserve life insurance proceeds for the living, to avoid price increases, and most importantly, to provide peace of mind. Call or email us today to discuss prearrangements with Holy Smoke.
None of the ash will have any effect on rifling, the propellant, or the firearm. All ash is placed in the shot cup or in the bullet for rifles and pistols. All shotshells and bullets will be sealed and boxed with reverance and care.
How cool is this!
Clem Parnell, co-owner of Holy Smoke, says it all with this one statement:
“You know I’ve thought about this for some time and I want to be cremated. Then I want my ashes put into some turkey load shotgun shells and have someone that knows how to turkey hunt use the shotgun shells with my ashes to shoot a turkey. That way I will rest in peace knowing that the last thing that one turkey will see is me, screaming at him at about 900 feet per second.”
Thank you very much. Welcome to the South!
Stephen Colbert weighs in on this company as well.(a good laugh but a mild profanity at the end)
