Cremation Urns - Preserving the Memory
of Your Loved One Forever
By Rajesh T
There are a wide number of funeral urn makers today to
respond to the growing number of people who opt for
cremating their departed family. Consequently, cremation
urns now come in all forms and sizes. Choosing a funeral
urn has now been more difficult. However, with this, you
are given much more comfort knowing that you have
provided only the best to keep the memory of your loved
Funeral urns are usually made of marble, wood,
cloisonné, glass, porcelain, pewter, ceramic, Stone,
brass, or copper.
There are a wide number of options to choose from. Here
are the most popular types of cremation urns today:
Keepsake urns are smaller versions of cremation urns
which are made for sharing the cremated ashes among
family members. Keepsake urns respond to a wide number
of needs. This type of urn has been proven to solve the
most common problems that come up when families decide
on where to store the loved one's ashes. The complexity
of wanting to keep at least a portion of the ashes
results to a very common dilemma in big families.
Family members, most especially the ones close to the
loved one who passed away, would like to have the ashes
with them, or take them to a separate location which
they deem reasonable. These ideas may be unacceptable to
another family member, leading to conflict.
It is also useful in cases when the family wishes to
place the main urn in a cemetery as part of the
tradition or to scatter the ashes, while other members
would like to take a portion home. Much like their
bigger counterparts, keepsake urns are made of different
materials and come in all shapes and artistic designs.
Companion urns have been designed for couples who want
to honor the pledge they made to be with each other
forever. Companion urns are usually designed such that
there are two compartments (or a large single one) to
place the cremated remains of a couple, either
separately or together.
Companion urns allow the love of two people who shared
each other's lives to continue even after death. It
allows them to remain literally together forever through
many generations after them.
Design or Memorial Urn
Design urns or Memorial urns obviously have a smaller
capacity. Today, Design and Memorial urns come in
traditional designs or with Memorial themes. They come in
different colors and can be personalized with the
child's name, date, special message or even pictures.
Picture urns are those which have the images of the
departed loved one on the surface of the urn. They look
much like photo frames, only that they contain the
remains of your loved one as well. Many pet owners also
use picture urns to store their beloved pet's remains.
On the other hand, it possible to engrave the image of
your loved one on regular cremation urns, and proves to
be a good alternative for a picture urn.
If you want to memorialize your loved one who has
provided good service in protecting the country in the
military, there is no better way to do it than veteran
urns. A veteran urn is an everlasting tribute to uphold
the passion of your departed to protect the interests of
the country, and this memory will live on from
generation to generation in the decades and centuries to
come. They are made of different materials and are
usually decorated to be in line with patriotic and
military themes of
liberty, freedom and courage.
Despite all the difficulties you go through when a loved
one dies, it is still important to choose the best
cremation urn or pet cremation jewelry to contain the
ashes. The cremation urns will hold the memory of your
loved one forever. We at Everlasting Memories Inc. are
