Bragdon-Kelley Funeral Home in cooperation with Meadow Hill Corporation are proud to offer Thumbies®. Thumbies® are elegant keepsakes that replicate the thumb or finger print of your loved one. The process begins when you instruct the funeral home to take an ink fingerprint, handprint, or footprint. Working with the funeral home staff, you then select your keepsakes from the many options available. Once the prints are received, the best one is scanned and saved electronically. For each piece you order a wax replica is created and then cast in solid precious metal, using the process of lost wax casting. Hand-polished, your piece is finished with the engraving of your choice and returned to the funeral home. Additional pieces may be ordered through the funeral home at any point in time. Thumbies® offer comfort and a way to remember. Later, these beautiful keepsakes can be passed down through the family, destined to become treasures for future generations.
Prints can also be obtained from such sources as birth records, military papers, school projects, and employment cards.
Our staff here at Bragdon-Kelley Funeral Homes will be able to guide you through the process of selecting and personalizing your Thumbie®.
