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 70% of the United States. Kennedy was CEO of TFCC for 22 years. In February 2011, TFCC was sold.
