Death is an inevitable phenomenon that we all have to face some day in our lives. If we think about our own death or of our loved ones, it is quite emotional. We want to remain alive in memories of our loved ones even after we are no more around them. This is possible in many ways like using their stuff, doing the things that they always told you to do, having a picture of them etc. It feels good to keep something with you that belonged to them.
When the body is cremated, some relative or friend is allowed to keep the remains of the deceased with him or her. There are many things one can do with the remains. If you believe in the letting go theory, you may want to offer the remains back to nature from which the body was actually build up. You can get jewelry made out of the ashes and keep it close to yourself at all times. There are other decorative items also that can be made out of the ashes which you can carry along with yourself or keep at a corner in your home.
Cremation urns are the most popular and convenient options to store the remains of your loved ones. You may not have graves to grieve on but you can have a small urn that reminds you of your loved one and give you the necessary support when you need it. Cremation urns come in many different shapes, sizes and materials giving you a lot of options to choose from. You can have a special place for them in your home and can also carry them with you whenever you move. Many times, people choose their cremation urns before their death. You can also customize the urns to suit your requirements.
