What To Do With an Urn Part Four

Every life is unique and deserves to be celebrated in a way that reflects their individual personality. There are many lesser known ways to celebrate a loved one and to memorialize them in a way reflective of them. This is the last in a four part series about different ways to memorialize and find a final resting place for a loved one.

One unique option is to scatter from the air. There are several companies that can perform an ash scattering from a plane. Aerial scattering can allow for ashes to be released in a favorite spot that is hard to reach or far away, such as a secluded lake or hiking trail. An airplane can also scatter over a body of water as long as regulations are followed for at sea or inland scattering.

Creating diamonds from cremation ashes is a wonderful tribute to a loved one. Companies will take the ashes and use the carbon to grow a diamond. This makes each diamond unique to the person requesting the transformation. Diamonds can even be customized to be a specific shape, color and even have their name engraved on the diamond. Some companies even offer the option to create a diamond from a lock of hair.

Ashes can be transformed into stone, creating a tangible memorial. The cremated remains are infused with natural material to create solidified remains. This stone acts and feels much like river stones which will not dissolve in water or become marked from a fingernail.

A last idea is to place cremated remains into a stuffed animal keepsake urn. This can be a very comforting memorial for children and adults alike. The familiar shape of a stuffed animal can bring a calming feeling and give a comforting presence. A stuffed animal urn can provide an outlet for grief by acting as a therapeutic toy or a nonjudgmental figure to speak to about grief.
