Some families want their loved one to be as close as possible, even after the cremation is complete, and that might mean keeping their remains in the family home. Here are some tips for displaying the cremated remains in your home.
A Nice Urn Is Fitting
When you get a cremation package of any kind from the funeral home, it will automatically come with a simple container for your loved one’s remains. This container is little more than a cardboard box and it’s not something that will look all that nice on display in your home. If you have decided to keep your loved one in your home, you might want to add a nice urn to that cremation package. There are so many different options it can be hard to choose. Get something within your budget, but also something that looks nice with your home and suits your loved one’s personality and style. The cremation provider can help you understand what size you need, among other things. You can get an urn from them, or you can look at outside vendors to find something you really like.
Try Different Locations
You may not have an exact spot in mind for your loved one’s remains, and that’s okay. Try some different locations and perhaps let your loved one sit there for a day or two as you decide. One spot might not feel right to you while another is just the right place. It’s okay to move your loved one around as you figure out where you want them to reside on a more permanent basis.
Place Photos Around The Urn
After you decide on a location and your loved one is situated there, you might like to have something close to them and not just have the urn sitting on a shelf at random. Put a picture of them nearby so everyone who sees the urn will also see them as they were when they were with you. You could also put the most recent family photo that includes them or even a family photo without them so you can keep your family members close by and with their urn at all times.
Clean The Display Often
Out of respect for your loved one, you will want to keep the urn and the area around it nice and clean. Polish the urn and remove dust regularly so your loved one has a nice place for their resting area. If you are having trouble figuring out what you want to do after cremation services in Seattle, WA, the professionals at Edline-Yahn & Covington Funeral Chapel have plenty of ideas and options that can help you decide.
