When you have cremation done for a loved one at funeral homes in Tacoma, WA, you are taking care of their immediate needs. It’s nice to know that any cremation package you get will take care of your loved one. They will get the transportation they need from the place of their death to the funeral home. They will get care and the cremation process. And they even get a simple container for their remains. You can, of course, buy an urn for them, if you choose. And if you are going to store your loved one in a place of honor in your home, you might very well want to do that. Having your loved one at home is a nice way to keep them close and the funeral home professionals can offer ideas and options for places to display them. Here are a few to consider.
Your China Hutch
Your china hutch is the place where you keep some of the most breakable and most precious items you own. You might have china on display in there that is from your great grandparents. This hutch is something no kids are allowed to touch and that everyone can see and enjoy. Your loved one’s urn is another precious item. You can see it within your home, but placing it in the china hutch puts it off limits to hands, which protects it.
If your loved one adored reading, or you have a nice bookshelf in a place in your home that you often see, it might be a good place for a loved one’s urn. Get something for them that looks nice with the room you intend to place them within and them put some books or other items around them that show their style. You might even put a picture of them or your family nearby so you can have a mini-memorial area for them.
Your Night Table
If you lost your spouse, it might feel fitting that they are close to you at night, where they always were before. Placing them on the nightstand beside your bed might be comforting to you. If you never slept a night without them, you don’t have to now, either, even though things are different. You can say your goodnight to them and take comfort in their presence.
The Fireplace Hearth
Placing your loved one on the fireplace mantel keeps them in the center of the family room, but also puts them in an out of the way location where they will be safe and can oversee family nights.
There are lots of other places you might put an urn within your home and the professionals at funeral homes in Tacoma, WA can help you find just the right location. Give Edline-Yahn & Covington Funeral Chapel a call for ideas and options and we can help you go through your home and find the right position for your loved one’s urn if you plan to keep them with you.
