A Ceramic Cremation Urn for a Pet is a Wonderful Last Tribute
The loss of a pet can be a very, for lack of a better word, heart breaking experience. Anyone who has had the pleasure of being a pet owner can attest to the grief felt by such a tragedy. Whether the passing of the beloved companion was expected or not, no one can truly be ready to let go of a friend that has been a constant and unwavering source of laugher, enjoyment, and not to mention, comfort. That is why when a pet is, unfortunately, lost, we feel we must commemorate their lives in a way that will not only honor their existence, but the love that they shared with the world around them. Ceramic cremation urns have long been used to hold and protect the earthly essence of man. Some of the main reasons why this particular material was used to create these funerary urns is for the flexibility and durability it offers. Many can recall seeing photos, in their earlier years of school, of these ancient vessels that were unearthed from excavation sites. Many of these relics were found deep in the earth, so the vessel would have had to of resisted all the pressure and elements to endure. That alone attests to the longevity that these remarkable urns offer.
Now that same durability can be utilized to commemorate the life of a beloved pet. The ceramic pet urns are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, and feature designs that range from simple and elegant, to elaborate and eye-catching. Many of these beautiful vessels are created by ceramic artists who have a passion for memorialization. Because many of these pieces are hand-made, they may feature colors and shapes that vary slightly from the example image. That helps ensure that the vessel will not only be beautiful, but just as unique as the pet it pays tribute to. Some of these ceramic urns have lids that simply sit on the top of the urn, but they can be permanently sealed, for those who desire it, with a small amount of silicone based adhesive (which is usually available at any home improvement stores).
As mentioned before, the loss of a pet can be very devastating, regardless of what type, or specie, of pet it was. It is one of the sad facts of life that these beautiful creatures cannot stay with us as long as we would hope, but that is not to say they are to be completely forgotten about, which is what many pet owners worry about after the loss. While we can't hold them close and play with them after their time to leave our world comes, we can still do so in our dreams and in our memories. A beautiful ceramic pet urn, when properly handled and cared for, can hold the essence of the pet, and be a comforting reminder of the happier moments shared with a truly beloved companion.
"I ordered this urn and had it express shipped the week of Thanksgiving to arrive on Friday in California at my Dad's house. I flew in on Friday and the urn was delivered a couple of hours later. I opened the beautiful blue box to unveil the gorgeous pewter heart to hold a piece of my Dad for me forever. He will be placed in my casket along with our cremated pets. My Dad passed on Monday 11/28/11 and I took the urn on Tuesday to the funeral home. They kept my urn and then shipped it to my home here in Texas. Although this was a very tough time in my life, Memorials.com made it easy. I called and left a message in the evening and the next day, a customer service rep left me a message on my cell phone. I called back and their customer service rep answered all of my questions, took my order and accommodated my shipping needs. Using Memorials.com was a wonderful experience. I have already recommended this company and their website to my friends.
I also plan to look at future pet products when we need it. We have a few babies in boxes and 1 in an urn. My Dad will become part of the dearly departed that will be with us forever. I wish I knew about this website sooner, so I could have used my own urn instead of buying it through the cremation service. Thank you for helping me have a piece of my Dad forever!
