Have a diamond created from the ashes of a loved one and keep them with you forever. As cremation grows in popularity many people are faced with what to do with the ashes. Scattering them in a significant place is an option. However, some family members are reluctant to do so because they will then have nothing left. Using part of the ashes to create a diamond is the perfect solution.
Companies such as LifeGem and Cremation Solutions only need a small portion of the ashes to make the diamond. They use the carbon from them for the process. More than one can be made if you wish. The cremation diamonds can also be made in colors. The gems produced are molecularly the same as natural diamonds and have the same properties.
Wear your loved one next to your heart or on your hand as a daily reminder of their love.
Everyone has seen the memorial stickers that are made when a well known person dies. Almost every pickup truck had a memorial sticker displayed when Dale Earnhardt was killed.
Did you realize that you can have memorial stickers made for friends and family to use to memorialize your loved one? Many printing companies can supply you with personalized vinyl stickers. Most of them even have templates that are appropriate for a memorial sticker. Check with local printing companies or shop online and ask if they make custom vinyl stickers. Both online and local companies can usually accommodate a rush order for memorial stickers.
Passing out funeral favors is a growing trend. It allows the participants to have a small memento to remember the person. Memorial stickers usually make a well received funeral favor.
Biodegradable urns are a new item in burial urns. Use a biodegradable urn to deposit ashes in the sea or in a natural setting. This will prevent the wind from scattering the ashes and allow them to be placed exactly where you want them to go. The urn will then naturally degrade and be safe for the environment. Most of these urns are made from paper or light wood.
Select a shell shaped biodegradable urn for a fitting sea dispersion of cremated remains. It will float for a short while to allow flowers to be scattered with it and then sink to the bottom where it will disintegrate harmlessly. Other shapes are available.
There are many shapes and styles of biodegradable urns. Pick one that is a fitting tribute to your loved one for burial. Some include a place for a picture. When selecting a place to bury the urn check with local authorities for restrictions.
Memoralize your child by setting a tradition of giving a new mother or newborn baby a gift in their memory. Do this on the anniversary of their birth. A friend says, "On Zachary's birthday, I call our local hospital to see if any babys were born. If there were, I send flowers or a baby gift basket. If there was more than one baby born, I send it to the first baby born and send cards to all the other families. If no babies were born that day, I wait until the next birth and send it to them."
Many people find comfort in placing a memorial remembrance in the newspaper. It is often done on either the anniversary of the person's birthday or the day of their death. You may write something personal or place a special poem with or without a photo in the local newspaper. Your newspaper office may have a book of memorial sentiments for you to choose from.
