“When I rise up, let me rise up joyful, like a bird. When I fall, let me fall without regret, like a leaf.” –Wendell Berry
Graceful Leaves Urns
Leaf designs can be found in many of GetUrns’ cremation urns, from biodegradable Earthurns to aluminum urns designed to last for generations. The image of a leaf, an essential symbol of letting go, offers deep comfort. Falling leaves are part of the cycle of life. A tree dropping its leaves is necessary for new growth, essential for a healthy ecosystem. If, like leaves, we can let go when we need to, all will be well.
Aluminum and brass urns can be personalized with names, dates and quotes, while jewelry pieces, a sterling silver pendant in the shape of a leaf or a shamrock, serve as an ongoing reminder of your loved one.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I design a family ceremony for our departed loved one?
Ideally, your departed left instructions, either verbally or in written form, about what they would like in a ceremony. But without that, if you find yourself taking on this role during a time of grief, rest assured that you will make the right choices. When the veil between the worlds is thin, much of life can have greater clarity.
