Riverside National Cemetery
"Not knowing the dimensions of Dad's existing urn left me with hardly any acceptable urns from which to choose. To be assured the day will go right I bought two Traditional Companion Cremation Urns. If Mom's "TTCU" will fit in the niche along with Dad's original urn: job done. I go home with $250 worth of an engraved empty urn.
The Riverside National Cemetery told me is not in the business of dis-entombing remains that were promised an eternal resting place.
However; if Mom's new and Dad's existing urns do not fit together I will be allowed to go to the administration building and move Dad's ashes from the existing urn to the new one. Then we go back back to the niche for the entombment. Easy-Peasy!
Mom and Dad are Catholic and the Church frowns on mixing the ashes or apparently even placing both sealed bags of ashes in the same urn. See my problem.
Wanted Mom in a nice flowered porcelain urn. Dad wanted a plain wooden box and if he's not in one I hope to give him this one after 28 years.
The Church wants no inclusions in the urn but Mom is already in her new urn with a bit of memorabilia. The Cemetery said they do not prohibit inclusions."D. Flick
