Congratulations on two fronts!
First - Getting everything ready for when you pass on. My parents did this and were able to make decisions clear headed rather than things are clouded by a VERY emtional time. Barb and I did the same thing about 10 years ago. Our son doesn't even want to contemplate our passing let alone make sound judgments when it happens. He has an envelope to open which has everything in it, including the phone number to call, when needed.
I strongly urge averyone to seriously consider doing this.
Secondly - I, too, have seen the ridiculous prices for urns and am considering making some for local funeral homes. Just need to get big enough pieces of wood. I believe that you will, if interested, find a market that will be hard to keep supplied.
