Cremation Jewelry Pendants Help Keep Lost Loved OneÕs Close Always
At Urns.com, we understand completely that everyone grieves differently. For many, an important part of the process is going through pictures and recounting memories of their lost loved one, while others take a more introspective approach and cannot yet bear to see pictures or think of all the wonderful times spent together. It is not that they do not remember all the brightness, but that the dark is too overwhelming to see through to the light. There is no right or wrong way to grieve; we are all completely unique people, and our own methods of dealing with loss must be respected as long as they are not destructive in any way. In our many years in the urns business, we have spoken with family members who are grieving in countless ways, and whose plans for their loved ones ashes are more varied than we might have imagined. But it was one order for several cremation jewelry pendants
that stands out in our minds as one of the most memorable and touching of all. WeÕd like to share it with you in hopes that it might help you in your own difficult timeÉ
Our cremation jewelry pendants
are among the most commonly-purchased items on our site, but most orders we see are for just one. A few months ago, a young man called to inquire about ordering 5 cremation jewelry pendants, wondering which we would recommend as the best unisex options. He explained that he had just lost his grandmother, a loving, lovely woman that he, his parents, and his sisters counted as one of the most amazing people they ever had the pleasure of knowing. His grandmotherÕs wishes were to be cremated, but his family was unable to come to a decision on where her urn would reside. Each wanted to keep her close, but each also wanted the others wishes to be respected and honored. Once they started looking online for urns options and came across our cremation jewelry pendants
, they knew exactly what they would do.
To keep this much-loved woman close to all their hearts both in spirit and physically, each would wear a cremation jewelry pendant. I understood the reasoning behind this aspect of their order simply enough, but it was the need for unisex pendants that intrigued me, and brought a tear to every eye in the office. The loving family decided that each year on their grandmotherÕs birthday, they would meet in celebration of her and exchange their cremation jewelry pendants
with one another Š the necklaces they had been wearing every day. Each would then carry not only their lost loved one, but would get to keep close to them something that had been close to someone they loved that was still here on Earth. Their hope was that this would be one small, meaningful way they could help each other carry the burden of the loss. It was a celebration of life on all accounts, and one of the finest examples of the true meanings of love and family IÕve ever seen.
