The Custom Cremation Urn as an Expression of Legacy
Felipe Herrera decided long ago that he wanted his body to be cremated after he died. His family found a creative way to follow through with his wishes.
Before the 95-year-old former NASA engineer took his last breath this month, his daughter Yvette Wilson gathered with her son, daughter-in-law and fiancé to surprise Herrera with an urn that was also a 22-inch replica of the space shuttle Columbia. Helping build the original shuttle was one of Herrera’s proudest moments.
