Death, dying, grief, bereavement. What comes to mind when
you've lost someone? What to do for a loved one who has passed
away? You've searched your heart and soul for an answer,
but all you can see is a vision of your loved one.
In visits to cemeteries, Jonathan Yesbick was struck by
the various techniques used to mount a visual likeness of
the deceased on the gravestone itself. All too often the
devices failed to withstand the ravages of the weather or
of the mowers used by the groundskeepers. Most were partially
broken or sun bleached, or executed in stilted hand tinted
Jonathan remembered his grandfather, William
Pick, a successful
inventor, telling him that, while solving problems gave him
a sense of accomplishment, solving problems that helped others
brought him an even greater personal reward. Jonathan decided
to take on the challenge of producing a frame that would
overcome all the obstacles he observed at numerous gravesites.
First he decided that keepsake photographs would be the
most favored way to depict the deceased. But how to protect
them from the elements? He experimented with different methods
of encasing photographs within frames made of indestructible
materials, then tested one bonding agent after another to
seal them hermetically against the weather. In time he found
that a door was the best method to protect a photograph against
sunlight. And he added several coatings to keep out UV rays.
The result was PERMAFRAME®.
