Traditionally, we think about death as an end, which in many ways it is. It’s the end of an individual life, an ending of that person’s agency, action, and story as a human being. However, as the saying goes, “what is remembered, lives” and so in many ways death can also be a transition, from life as a human being, to life in the memory of our loved ones. For Chris Linn, who lost her son, Tom Poteet, in 2018, that transition has been a tangible and meaningful one. Chris chose to have her portion of Tom’s cremated remains solidified into a new form of remains that resembles a collection of stones. Chris chose solidified remains for her son because she wanted a continued connection with him after his death.
