Many things occur when a loved one passes, and there are challenging decisions to be made during a time when the mind may not be functioning at it's normal capacity.
After the sudden passing of Laura, we were compelled to tend to numerous tasks and make decision about the technical aspects of the burial of her body, like:
The location where her body was going to be laid to rest.
Choosing the casket.
Selecting a funeral home that supported our wish to tend to her body ourselves.
Acquiring a burial shroud or fabric and burial ring.
These are just several from the numerous decisions that we had to make in a short amount of time.
I wanted silk fabric to shroud my dear daughters body, yet due to her sudden passing we were unable to acquire the silk fabric. Although cotton fabric is acceptable, as her Mother I was disappointed.
When the time came to shroud her body we did not have the necessary information to make the shrouding of her body easier, ye we made due with what we had and with what we knew at the time.
It wasn't long after her passing that our Bahai' community experienced another member passing and we were again confronted with a similar scenery that included rushing around trying to acquire the fabric and a burial ring.
These events, and the additional stress and fear in an already stressful situation, propelled me to begin thinking about solutions. I began the process of creating Forlora in memory of dear Laura by supporting the Baha'i community, providing information and education, along with the necessary materials that communities and families could acquire before a sudden event occurs and to have on hand.
That is how Forlora, Inc. was born. In memory of my daughter Laura for the progress of her soul, and for my fellow Baha'i's.
The name Forlora is .....For lora!
Forlora, Inc. is dedicated to providing quality Bahai burial supplies, information, and education about Bahai burial Law as well as choices and options others may wish to explore.
