Gretchens Kiefer owner and artist of Gretchens Creations understands how difficult it can be deciding how to pay tribute to a loved one. Much of Gretchen’s inspiration comes from her mother, and although she left this life too soon, she continues to have a prominent influence in Gretchen’s direction in life and in art. Her mother taught children who were blind to experience what life had to offer through touch. Gretchen offers an unmatched memorial that combines the respectable option of an urn with the accentuated beauty of an original, distinguished plaster portrait. The ashes are mixed into the plaster allowing the final resting place to be as unique as the love you shared.
