After the cremation of a deceased relative, you and your other living family members may want to store the cremains in an urn. That’s a traditional option as cremation has grown in popularity over the years. But if you’ll be getting an urn following the cremation, you can personalize the receptacle beyond merely etching the person’s name into it.
Here are some examples of popular things you can have inscribed into the cremation urn:
We’ll Love You Always
This is a great option if you want to demonstrate that death won’t end the love you and your family have for your deceased loved one. Death does change things, and you won’t be able to bring the person back to the land of the living. But you can keep their memory alive in your hearts. You can talk about them amongst yourselves, and you can continue family traditions that they had loved during happier times. In essence, inscribing “we’ll love you always” into the urn will show that not even death can break the love that you and yours have for the deceased.
Rest in Peace
After life’s journey is done and over, it might be comforting to imagine that your deceased loved one can now rest from the rigors of life, the stress of the rat race and the sting of disappointments. So after a life well-lived, it may be possible, at some point at least, to look at things somewhat philosophically in the sense that you might feel comforted that they’re at rest.
Until We Meet Again
Many people believe in a life after this present one, so inscribing a message on the urn that speaks to that belief can be of comfort to the entire family. In this sense, death will be seen as a temporary separation, a bit of a setback. But the great hope will be that the entire family will, at some point in the future, be together again. The inscription will be the promise of a future reality.
In Loving Memory
This message will be poignant given the fact that keeping the urn with the cremains of your deceased relative is, in itself, a sign that you want to remember them. So inscribing this message into the urn will serve to underscore this sentiment. Just because someone dies doesn’t mean that they have to be forgotten.
