SUTHERLAND SPRINGS - Trey Ganem makes custom caskets for those who have died, attempting to entomb their legacy in their final resting place. 

Now, Ganem is offering to supply the families of the children involved in the Sutherland Springs shooting with free caskets. He hopes this gesture will help ease the pain families are suffering after their loved ones were gunned down inside the First Baptist Church Sunday.

The shooting left 26 people dead and 20 injured. 

"Being from a small community, my heart goes out to these folks, and we want to extend our services free of charge for these families," Ganem said in post to Facebook. 

"This is something that I can't fathom. It is dear to me, seriously. This is something that you know, people were just going to worship, and to have somebody like this come in and have their lives taken away from them, we want to give back,"  he said. 

Ganem also offers ways for people to donate to families who cannot afford to bury their children. If you'd like to donate to support his cause, click here
