The AWD option is available on all gas-powered Pacificas and features a huge storage advantage. The same two powertrains are being offered in the 2021 Pacifica: the standard 287-hp 3.6-liter V-6 and a hybrid system using a 3.6-liter V-6 with two electric motors backed up by a 16.0-kWh lithium-ion battery. Jim Swanson , the owner of 1st Coach Builders, works to ensure that funeral directors have access to beautiful new hearses at reasonable prices. “This new All-Wheel-Drive Chrysler is perfect for funeral homes located on the mountain- ous and snowy regions of the United States because of the powerful capabili- ties it possesses,” says Jim.

The Tribute Box Puts Your Brand in Families’ Hands ROCKAWAY PARK,NY— The Tribute Box offers families an organizational keepsake for closure while keeping your funeral home brand front and center in their lives. The traditional-style box, made with real maple wood, is 6 ½” square and 1 ½” deep and is divided into two compartments. The sliding lid is laser-etched with your funeral home’s name and logo for branding within the home. Families can also choose to add their loved one’s name and photo, ei- ther in color or etched on the wood. The Tribute Box includes a complimenta- ry velvet pouch that fits the larger compartment and an 8 GB USB drive that can also include your funeral home’s logo. The two storage units within the Tribute Box are ideal for cremains, dried flowers from the ser- vice, photos, jewelry, med- als, awards, notes, draw- ings, death certificate, hair sample, DNA, or religious items. The USB drive is available in oval or rect- angle and can be used for tribute videos, tribute pho- tos, the service video, or important documents. “It’s big enough and small enough,” says creator Paul Generowicz, referring to how the Tribute Box is large enough to house all sorts of important items while still being small enough to be a centerpiece in one’s home. Generowicz came up with the Tribute Box for two reasons. He felt that there was a distinct discon- nect between the deceased and the ones they left be- hind, but he also realized the need for funeral homes to be properly branded in a person’s home. The Tribute Box addressed both prob- lems with a seemingly sim- ple solution. The classic wooden box is not just an immediate gift for grieving families. It is a timeless keepsake that will be used years from now, as families continue to add mementos to the box. Generowicz likens the Tribute Box to the casket itself, referring to its long- lasting ability to store im- portant and personal items and even some cremains. “It’s like a wooden tomb- stone for your house,” he says. The Tribute Box gives families a physical object to hold and touch after the funeral when their loved one is really gone. Not only are the box- es completely customiz- able and personalizable, but the USB drives are ideal for storing a digital copy of the death certificate, cremation certificate or other paper- work as well as a slideshow video. Webcasts of the fu- neral service, which are available through Sympa- thyLive.com, Generowicz’s webcasting service that has been proactively offering video services for the past 12 years, can also be included. Low minimum orders are accepted. The Tribute Box has been delivered to over 35 funeral homes “every- one absolutely loves them,” says Generowicz. For more information on the Tribute Box, call 718- 928-6608. To view an in- formational video visit www.TheTributeBox.com.
