Permanent Memorialization Options After Cremation Service
Are you considering what to do with your loved one’s cremated remains following the cremation service in Fort Worth, TX? One of the things you’ll quickly see is that there really are many options available. If become overwhelmed, don’t be. You don’t have to go with just one option. So if you and your family fancy going with multiple permanent memorialization options, so be it.
What follows is a look at some options that you and your family will want to consider before making a decision.
Keep Cremated Remains in Urn
One option that is very popular is keeping the cremated remains in an urn – and then keeping the urn inside a private residence. You can place the urn wherever you wish. Some people put it on a shelf in their living room or in a family room, for instance. If the urn will be on display in a place of honor in your home, you’ll want to get a nice urn that will fit in with your existing décor or that will stand out for all the right reasons. Personalizing the urn is a good idea also.
Place Urn Outdoors
In addition to potentially keeping the urn inside your home, you can also keep it outside of your home. Is there a vegetable garden in your backyard where you could place the urn? This could be a great idea if your loved one had loved working the earth, planting seeds, weeding the garden, and then reaping the rich bounty.
Scatter the Cremated Remains
Another option is to scatter the cremated remains. You can scatter the ashes on the ground, in the air, or even on water. In fact, you don’t have to limit yourself to scattering in one location or to scattering via one method. You and your family might, for instance, wish to scatter in different locations. And it’s possible that you and your loved ones may wish to scatter on the ground and on the water.
Bury the Urn in an Urn Garden
Some cemeteries have urn gardens where you can bury the urn containing your loved one’s cremated remains. This can be a great option if you want to bury the urn but don’t want to buy a burial plot. Burying the urn in an urn garden also means you and your loved ones will be able to visit the site whenever you wish. This is a great option if you wish to visit their resting place.
