A Cal­i­for­nia com­pa­ny that aims to pro­tect forests while inspir­ing peo­ple to leave a mean­ing­ful lega­cy for loved ones is com­ing to Connecticut.

Sandy Gib­son, the CEO of Bet­ter Place Forests, knows first­hand the impor­tance of hav­ing a beau­ti­ful, mem­o­rable rest­ing place for loved ones. Sandy’s father died unex­pect­ed­ly from a stroke when he was just 10 years old and when he was 11 he lost his moth­er to Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

I spent the rest of my life going back to their grave and that cre­ates a mem­o­ry. It was nev­er a place I want­ed to remem­ber them, it was nev­er the image I want to think of when I think of my mom,” Gib­son said. “Bet­ter Place Forests is a way that we can cre­ate that beau­ti­ful mem­o­ry and that beau­ti­ful place for oth­er fam­i­lies to choose.”
