Not long after the Uvalde school shooting in Texas, a funeral is for victims killed in the bloodbath. Eighteen children and one teacher will be buried in a custom casket made by Trey Ganem. The man decided to use his family-owned company “SoulShine Industries” to provide coffins for the victims. The company is based in Edna, Texas.
Ganem says the Texas Funeral Directors Association reached out to him to make the custom caskets on the day of the shooting.
The caskets were purchased through the gergia-based company and will arrive in Texas by early Friday, just in time for the funeral. Each casket made costs between $3,400 and $3,800 to create. Ganem met with the victims’ family members to customize designs for each coffin. The casket art ranges from softball to TikTok to Super- Man.
“We don’t just put a vinyl wrap on top. We custom paint every single one. We take the casket completely apart, paint the hardware, and paint the bars,” Ganem told a media outlet.”
His company also has made caskets for the victims of the Sutherland Springs and Las Vegas mass shootings.
