Our Personal Cremation Urn

“Make the most of your sorrow, but tend and cherish it ’til it comes to have a separate and integral interest. To regret deeply is to live afresh.”– Henry David Thoreau

I nipped our plates to remind our son (to whom this will go) of family meals in the home where he was raised. Photos of special events – birthdays, graduations and trips – encompass the love and laughter we shared.

Honoring a Beloved Daughter/Sister Taken Too Soon

“When a child dies, you bury the child in your heart” – Korean proverb

Creating an urn for a 20 year-old who died unexpectedly, I included what  she’d often said: “When the going gets tough…just laugh.” The life has ended, but her family’s love for her will endure forever.

Remembering a Cherished Pet

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” – Anatole France

Many of the personalized urns I create are for pets. A custom created pet urn is a way of holding onto the licks and love we miss when we lose our furry-ever friend. Along with names, I have embedded tags, a ribbon a cat wore, stuffing from a couch the dog had unleashed.

Parents’ Urn

Loved Ones Speak

No mother should have to find the “perfect urn” for her child, but
this was the all I would ever get to do for Lucy Lynn, the beautiful baby I had given birth to the day before,
who died because of Turner Syndrome. Hours into my search,
I found Sybil, who delicately placed Lucy’s tiny footprints under glass along with handwritten
notes by both my husband and me. I knew Sybil put her heart into making it perfect.
For that I will be forever grateful.

Abby Struck for her daughter, Lucy
