Keepsake and Memorial Cremation Urns are wonderful to keep at Home and Create a Memory
The loss of a beloved friend or family member is one of the most tragic events that we must all face in our lives. This certainly goes without saying, and just as the loss is experienced differently based on the circumstances, the grieving process is, of course, also different for everyone. However, what many find to be a strong comfort during, and even after, this period is being able to have a small remembrance of the lost loved one. This section offers a collection of keepsake cremation urns, which are small ash vessels that are intended to hold a minimal amount of cremated remains.
These beautiful 'tokens', as they are sometimes called, will provide an elegant, yet small memorial tribute that can be placed in any location. The smaller size of these vessels makes them easier to incorporate into most decor, without commanding as much attention as their larger counterparts. These small vessels come in a large variety of different designs, and are made from a vast array of different materials. The styles range from beautifully sculpted figurines, to traditionally shaped covered miniature vases, and even include wind chimes and hourglasses that will hold a small amount of cremated ashes.
The keepsake urns are ideal for families who are scattering or interring the remains of a loved one, but would like to keep a small portion in remembrance. Many of the full size urns offer a matching keepsake, and families who are sharing the ashes often incorporate the keepsakes into the memorial service by having each person take their keepsake urn after the ceremony. (We would like to note that while many families do share the ashes, not all family members may be comfortable with splitting the remains, so it is important to discuss the use of keepsake urns to ensure that everyone's wishes for the memorial service are honored, as well as those of the deceased.)
Many often find comfort in being able to hold the belongings that remind them of their lost loved one, such as their favorite piece of jewelry, or perhaps a cap or scarf they always wore. The addition of a keepsake urn to these remembrances can help create a small memorial tribute which will be a comforting reminder that even though the person cannot be present at the moment, their memory certainly lives on through us. The large variety offered in this selection ensures that there is a keepsake to suite any personality.
"The marble statue I received is perfect; I had it placed on the front lawn - it is a little bigger - which is actually nice. Everyone has commented on this piece of art outside my house." Kirsten Holl
