The circle of life

One of the sadder parts of this job is that we get furniture donated to us by many people whose relatives have just recently passed away. It is a bittersweet feeling every time we go into one of these homes.
Every piece of their furniture tells a different story. Perhaps they looked in the mirror on top of their dresser every morning, or sat in that chair telling stories to their kids, before rolling into that bed for another nights rest.
At the same time, its incredible to know that even after they pass, they are still making a difference in a person's life. When families come in and get new beds, chairs and dressers to make their homes feel complete, it is incredible to truly experience the wider circle.
