Kenyon's Houston team had the privilege of donating a portable embalming machine to the National Museum of Funeral History. The donation was facilitated by Associate Responder Burnell Hines who, alongside Director, Operations Keri Griffith, hand delivered the historical piece to the museum. 

The National Museum of Funeral History, which opened in 1992, contains a collection of artefacts and relics that aim to educate the public and preserve the heritage of death care. The Museum, located in Houston, Texas, is home to the country's largest collection of funeral service artefacts and features renowned exhibits on one of man's oldest cultural customs. For its hallmark exhibit, Celebrating the Lives and Deaths of the Popes, the Museum collaborated with the Vatican to highlight the ceremonies surrounding papal funerals. As of October 2020, the museum has a p
residential exhibit, including Abraham Lincoln's Death Mask.
