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 my daughter Laura, there were so many decisions to make, such as;
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.
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, yet 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 experience I had myself and other community members, propelled me to begin thinking about solutions which set me on a path of creating Forlora in memory of dear daughter, Laura. Forlora 's goal is to provide information and education, along with the necessary materials that communities and families need for the burial of their loved one.
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.
