?We are extremely fortunate to have a man of John?s caliber joining us to head up our newest division, said Branton. Having pioneered the concept and the huge acceptance of the photo memorialization blanket by the funeral industry, we are confident in his abilities to bring this newest technology to the market.?

Sparacino comes to Vera Lee with over 30 years of experience in bringing new products to the marketplace. Branton also added, ?John has a great service record with hundreds of funeral homes across the country and his addition to our staff solidifies Vera Lee?s commitment to the new throw and blanket market.?

When asked about his joining Vera Lee, Sparacino said ?he was excited about renewing his relationships with his current customers and developing new ones with the introduction of the incredible Phase Transition Technology. Now we can give the families a woven throw that is better sized, offers more brilliant colors and has actual photographic reproduction clarity and quality. It is still machine washable, won?t shrink or fade but has a much softer feel than straight cotton weaving.?

?Moving to Texas is a far reach from the mountains of North Carolina, he continued, but I am grateful for the opportunity to bring this new line of memorial products to today?s forward thinking funeral directors. When they see and feel this product up close they are going to be blown away by the quality.?

Woven Remembrance.com is a wholly owned subsidiary of Vera Lee Garment Company which has been serving the funeral industry since 1932 offering a full line of burial dresses and men?s suits. For further information contact John Sparacino at 800-321-4077 or online at: www.wovenremembrance.com.
