The Family Tree - April/May 2003
Eternally You - The Final Word

ETERNALLY YOU is exactly that – a unique business started by Zellna Shaw featuring personalized and customized funeral accessories designed to be purchased before the need and used as an attractive wall hanging.  The packages include personalized panels for the casket lid, pillow covers, casket drapes, palls for closed casket services, personalized cards, special music on CDs, and other accessories.  Shaw specializes in Scottish heritage items, but has expanded to include occupational and other interests.  It is possible to include family pictures and other images on the specialty panels – even the family pet.

            “Thinking about one’s own funeral is not at the top of ‘your favorite things to do’ list, however advance planning is probably the most caring and compassionate thing you can do for your loved ones,” Shaw stated.  “It’s not unusual to purchase a cemetery lot, a monument or even a casket in advance, so why not take it one step further and have this celebration of your life become a personal tribute to your individuality and heritage?”

             Also included in the package is a Personal Directive that should be completed by everyone.  It contains biographical information, financial information and any specific wishes for your funeral.  Why not write your own obituary?  You can have the final word!

            Shaw, who is (or was) retired, along with Charles, her husband of 49 years, lives in Lakeland, GA. They enjoy having their family of three daughters and three grandsons living nearby in adjoining communities, and they all agree that Zellna’s mother, Zella Mae Thigpen, who is 98 years young, is still the matriarch of the family.  They are involved in their church and community activities and are members of the Scottish community.

            Zellna describes her new venture that is a result of a dream she had four years ago, as “an innovative approach that speaks of legacies and heritage, of dreams and successes, and of treasures of the heart.”  She selected the butterfly as the company logo signifying “new life” and says you can not only enjoy it now in this life, but you can take it with you – ETERNALLY YOU!

Contact Zellna for more information.
