Memorializing a Catholic Friend
Recently a friend of mine passed away, and we offered her son a cremation urn. It was a perfect white marble vase style urn, and exactly what this woman reflected to us. Many people touched the urn and had a special connection to her through it. She was a good woman, good friend, and a knowledgeable and active member of our mountain side community. I will miss our walks in the morning with my dogs.

We were glad to memorialize our friend through the urn we choose. Cremation urns provide the special opportunity to give a loved one a special resting place just as unique as they were in life.
A wide selection can make it easier to choose just the right cremation urn to properly memorialize a loved one for eternity. In this case for us, our friend was Catholic and her urn was buried next to her husband in our town's little cemetery. Her dog's cremains, who passed just a few months ago, will soon be scattered over the area where she is buried. Remember, all urns can be buried. In some instances the cemetery may require a vault to protect the earth from sinking. And of course, cremains are non-toxic and will not hurt the environment.
Cremation in the Catholic religion has received much debate. Read more about Catholic Cremation
