Benefits of Keeping Your Loved Ones Close with Keepsake Urns

by Alex Johnson April 02, 2017 3 min read

Many questions may arise when deciding where to put your loved one's ashes. One question that mourning families often ask is who will keep their loved one's ashes. This can cause unnecessary problems amongst a grieving family. Instead of having one large urn to display your loved one's ashes in a singular home, keepsake urns for ashes provides an alternative solution. Here are some benefits of keepsake urns for ashes.

Customizable

Choosing a keepsake ashes urn is a very personal decision, as it is your own memorialization of your lost loved one. There is no need for each family member's keepsake urn to be identical. Many relatives can choose an individualized urn to commemorate their unique relationship with the lost loved one. Keepsake urns come in just as many different colors and materials as larger urns, just in a smaller size. Certain urn materials can even be engraved to mark a special date or words.

Economical

While large, beautifully designed urns may seem enticing, they are not always economically possible. When your loved ones pass, you want to give them the best. However, finances often get in the way of that. Keepsake urns for ashes provide a way for you to memorialize the departed in a beautifully designed piece, and they allow more than one family member to be involved in the cremation and burial process. This involvement helps distribute the costs among family members. Additionally, the size of a keepsake urn is beneficial for storage purposes. Many keepsake urns can be worn as necklaces or can be stored in small spaces, like on a desk or vanity.

Meaningful

Keepsake urns for ashes can provide a meaningful way for large families or close friends who all wish to have a piece of their loved one close by. Instead of having one person responsible for all of the ashes together in a single urn or scattering them across land or sea, each family member can have a small portion of the ashes. When your loved ones pass, the decisions following can be tough.

Keepsake urns provide a way to at least lessen certain burdens that come along with taking care of the deceased. They not only offer a way to cut down expenses but they, more importantly, give a way for grieving family members and friends to all have a piece of their loved ones to help aid in the mourning process.

Can Be Shared with Other Loved Ones

Keepsake cremation urns are the obvious option for most grieving families. Traditional urns are large and contain the entire quantity of ashes. While this may work for some families, it may cause problems for others. Keepsake cremation urns can be shared with other loved ones, which makes burial decisions easy. People don't have to debate where the final resting place will be or who will be in charge of taking care and maintaining the urn.

Having a loved one pass away is a difficult and trying time. Not only do you and your family have to deal with the grieving process, but you also are left with several other tasks. One major decisions that families have to make is how to memorialize their loved one’s remains. Keepsake cremation urns not only help families to heal, but they also help resolve common disputes on what to do and how to remember your loved ones. Keepsake urns create multiple, beautiful final resting places that keep your loved one close to you and your family’s hearts.
