Yellow Memorial EggColumbus, Ohio – Locally owned Crystal Remembrance LLC announced today that it has grown to cover 20 states.  By year’s end, the company plans the opening of a designer glass gallery in its Grandview studio, featuring acclaimed artists from central Ohio.

Crystal Remembrance is currently active in the midwest, southern and select western states including California, Arizona and Nevada. Now, a sales executive will represent the key states of Washington and Oregon.

About Crystal Remembrance – A Memorial to a Life Well-Lived

The Crystal Remembrance™ is a hand-crafted, elegant yet subtly bold and unique glass art piece designed to memorialize a loved one.  Interweaving a small amount of cremated remains with a swirl of chosen color, crystal artists create a one-of-a-kind memorial as meaningful and beautiful as the life being commemorated. Crystal Remembrance artists are degreed and accomplished professionals who create and display their own glass art in galleries.

Owner/CEO James L. Kennedy has had a passion for glass for more than 20 years.  In 1989, Kennedy founded Twenty First Century Communications. TFCC became a highly successful, multinational telecommunications company serving the needs of more than 100 utilities, representing 70% of the United States. Kennedy was CEO of TFCC for 22 years. In February 2011, TFCC was sold. Kennedy then directed his energies toward other endeavors, including opening the Crystal Remembrance glass blowing studio and gallery.  He is also a writer and inventor with over 15 patents to his name.

Crystal Remembrance partners with funeral homes throughout the country, that assist families in obtaining Crystal Remembrance memorials.  For more information, please visit
