Laying Your Loved One to Rest
For many, cremation is the ideal way to take care of their loved one’s remains. It’s often cheaper. But it also allows survivors to carry a piece of that relative with them for a long while.
Cremation can lead to some interesting memorial choices too. It allows you to channel your loved one’s creative side. Some urns can be true expressions of their life.
You’ll have to decide how you want to lay your loved one to rest, whether it be scattered across their favorite beach, interred at their favorite historical marker or placed in a place of honor on your bookshelf.
Pick the Right Size
There are several sizes of urns to choose from. If you and your surviving family members want to keep a little bit of your deceased loved one, you may want to consider a token or memento urn.
These urns are small in stature and only hold a very small portion of cremated remains. But they can be great choices for those with larger families. These tiny urns can be a good option too if you’ve scattered your deceased’s remains but don’t want to scatter all of them.
Find the Right Materials
Urns come in all shapes and sizes. They come in different types of materials too. Many are considering biodegradable urns. These urns can be used as seed receptacles so when you bury your loved one, eventually a tree will grow from their pod.
This is a creative and unique way to say goodbye to your relative while keeping a small part of them with you forever.
Unique urns can become great conversation starters for you and your loved ones. If you decide to keep the remains of the deceased, find something that will channel their creative spirit.
