People generally buy urns as a place to store their loved one’s remaining ashes after scattering some of those ashes. However, the process of selecting the ballot boxes can be painful and overwhelming. As you tackle this challenge, keep in mind a few ideas to make the process easier.
Why are there various sizes?
Keepsake urns are available in a variety of sizes. This is done for various reasons. Some family members choose to scatter the ashes of most of their loved ones, leaving only a small amount as a souvenir.
Think about your loved one’s wishes
As you consider the many options available, take time to reflect on your loved one’s interests. Maybe they especially liked a certain sport or hobby. Your loved one may have strong religious values or be a veteran.
Focus on quality for long-term storage of memories
There are many materials available when it comes to ballot boxes, but not all materials are suitable for all settings. For example, if you plan to bury an urn, copper is generally not recommended. If your loved one’s preferences include floating urns in the water, then you will want to choose a material that is water soluble and biodegradable.
Choose an urn that perpetuates the relationship between you and your loved one
Remember that you can appreciate the urn for several years. Choose a style that positively reminds you of the time you were able to spend with your loved one. Choose an urn that will help you heal from loss and keep your loved one close even after separation. Funeral urns can become prized possessions that are of great importance to you.
