Keepsakes Can Help Keep Your Memory Closer
Many times, individuals who select cremation feel confined or obligated to secure the cremated remains into a single vessel in preparation for burial, inurnment, scattering, or to simply keep at home. In hopes to accommodate family’s wishes, our staff can assist with selecting appropriate “keepsake” urns. We can gently remove the small portion of cremated remains needed to fill the keepsake, and still allow for the remainder to be kept in a traditional-sized urn.
Our funeral home offers a vast selection of keepsake urns from: marble, cloisonné, brass, glass, ceramic, and wood. Keepsakes, like traditional urns, vary in size, shape and material. Additionally, many of our keepsakes mirror traditional-sized urns, affording the family the opportunity to separate the cremated remains into multiple vessels. After, family or friends may wish to distribute the keepsake(s) to whomever, yet keep them all in the same style and material.
In essence, the idea of the keepsake urn, provides the family, friends, or other special individuals the opportunity to hold and treasure a small portion of the deceased’s cremated remains (on a smaller, urn-scale).
