    Traditionally caskets for children under 10 years of age are white, which in our culture symbolizes the innocence of the child.
    Personalized cardboard coffins have become a favored choice for older children’s and teenagers funerals, with high quality designs as varied as your imagination, and the option of adding the deceased’s name, poems and quotes. Designs for older children and teenagers are available in themes such as music and dance, surfing, cars and motorbikes, and favorite sporting team’s colors. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undertakers_sketch

    “Children may carry high levels of the coronavirus, up to 100 times as much as adults, new Lurie Children’s Hospital study finds” https://www.chicagotribune.com/coronavirus/ct-nw-nyt-coronavirus-children-lurie-childrens-hospital-study-20200731-enq5fjcjxzbtvceqombbuekfka-story.html
    “…experts were alarmed to learn that young children may carry significant amounts of the coronavirus.
    “I’ve heard lots of people saying, ‘Well, kids aren’t susceptible; kids don’t get infected.’ And this clearly shows that’s not true,” said Stacey Schultz-Cherry, a virologist at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “I think this is an important, really important, first step in understanding the role that kids are playing in transmission.”
    Jason Kindrachuk, a virologist at the University of Manitoba, said, “Now that we’re rolling into the end of July and looking at trying to open up schools the next month, this really needs to be considered.”
    The results are consistent with those from a German study of 47 infected children between the ages of 1 and 11, which showed that children who did not have symptoms had viral loads as high as adults, or higher. And a recent study from France found that asymptomatic children had CT values similar to those of children with symptoms.
