His name is Trey Ganem and for the last two decades, he's used his talent to give families -- and the loved one they've lost -- a personal final farewell.

So when Ganem heard about the tragedy that struck Sutherland Springs, he knew exactly what to do. 

Ganem said, "We have offered free services, full donations to the victims of the Sutherland Springs tragedy. We're doing custom caskets with designs, special colors, anything that we can do to help these families in the healing process."

Helping families in a time of need, Ganem had just returned from Las Vegas taking customized caskets for some of the victims in the Las Vegas shooting when the shooting happened in Sutherland Springs.

Ganem says all week he's been in Sutherland Springs, meeting with several of the families.  

Others have reached out to Ganem to help his team, prepare the caskets. One man born and raised in Sutherland Springs, now lives in San Antonio and is helping paint the caskets for the victims.

Ganem said, "This is the most amazing thing because what we do for these families is we learn about their loved ones and then we tell their story through what our artwork, our paint that we do on these caskets."
