New 2021-2022 Impressions Urn Catalogue

Guelph, Ontario / Livonia, Michigan

H.S. Eckels and Company is pleased to announce the launch of its brand new Impressions  cremation products catalogue. This latest edition contains a wide range of new and unique cremation urns and pendants, featuring a total of over 50 new products in this latest edition.

 

According to Richard Steele, president of Eckels, the catalogue has been redesigned for easier access and readability, with a wealth of new products and information.

 

"We are continuing to educate families about the importance of choosing a Final Resting Place within this catalogue," says Mr. Steele. "This choice will allow a family to appropriately pay tribute to their loved one and create a lasting impression in a meaningful place. Cremation allows families to choose a range of alternatives to remember the life of a loved one."

 

This catalogue features many new products, including:

Odessa Candle Series, Eva Series, Ribbons Series, Galaxy Series, as well as a new series of scattering tubes.

 

Eckels continues to break boundaries and offer unique, innovative, and custom capabilities. This is clearly illustrated with our Impressions Imaging personalization, a full color heat transfer graphic imaging process, providing full color possibilities on any urn with a flat surface.

 

Eckels has the ability to personalize almost any cremation urn that the family selects. We can do anything from name and dates to standard and custom images. For those urns that cannot be inscribed directly on their surface, we offer standalone engraving easels or hanging urn pendants as an alternative personalization method.

Chuck Lemmons - Client Service Representative for Arkansas

H.S. Eckels and Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Chuck Lemmons as our Client Service Representative for the State of Arkansas.

 

Chuck grew up in Jonesboro, Arkansas and moved to Paragould, Arkansas in 2002. He married Christy (Austin) Lemmons in 2005.  They are now parents of Cole, who is 14 and Eden, who is 11. Christy is a Speech and Language Pathologist and has been in private practice for over 20 years. In their spare time, they enjoy camping with friends and family and following school athletic activities.

 

After years in various sales positions, Christy encouraged Chuck to consider an opportunity she knew of at a local funeral home. She felt like it might fit his personality well. Chuck eventually took a "job" as a funeral assistant at Phillips Funeral Home in January of 2012. It didn't take long for this "job" to become his passion. He went on to get his Funeral Director's license in 2014. 

Chuck joined the Messenger team in January 2017 as the Sales Consultant for the state of Arkansas. This position has allowed him to give funeral directors the tools they need to serve their families with the utmost personalization and respect that he is so passionate about.

We are thrilled that Chuck has joined the Eckels team and we look forward to many years of success in Arkansas as he demonstrates the vast range of Eckels products and services.
