Cremation urns may have come to represent a somber reminder of your sorrow over the loss of beloved person. As the years go by, you may have learned to cope with the grief and go on with your life but the urn will always be a symbol of sadness and death. One way to bring another meaning to cremation jewelry and urns is to personalize them with engravings of the name and other messages that can evoke more pleasant memories instead. The goal is to put in as much personal touches as you can so it will help you remember and celebrate a life well lived.
Aside from engraving memorable scripture verses and favorite quotes, you can opt for family photos, art work, and other pictures of their hobbies and interests to cover the urns. Scenic photos of the places they visited or have stayed at one time or the other can also be used. If they had served in the military, you can decorate the urn with the flag or a medal that they earned. Any religious photos are also popular because they can ease your spirit and help you deal with death better.
