Dealing with the loss of a loved one not only involves managing your grief, but doing so while still making crucial decisions. One of these decisions is what to do with the cremated remains after a cremation. Most people know about scattering them or placing them in a columbarium, but there are lots of other options you can choose. Providers of cremation services in Old Bridge, NJ such as Brunswick Memorial Home have some excellent suggestions for unique ways of handling the cremated remains.
An interesting option that some people are choosing is planting the remains with seeds so that a tree of some kind will grow. For people who loved nature and the outdoors or who were concerned about the environment, this can be a moving tribute. There are lots of options, too, which can let you choose between flowers, trees, and other plants, so that you can get the option that best represents your loved one.
Cremation jewelry is another beautiful option you have if you want a unique way of handling the remains. These pieces of jewelry make it easy to have your loved one close to you at all times. They are discrete pieces that come in lots of shapes and styles. They only require a small amount of the remains, so that you can give some to other family members or scatter them if that is what you wish.
Certainly not for everyone, a new option that some people are choosing is to get a memorial tattoo in honor of your loved one. Many of these tattoos include a small amount of the cremated remains with the ink, so that your loved one is always a part of you. For people who want something permanent and beautiful, this can be a great option.
If your loved one always wanted to go to a certain location or if there is a beloved locale they loved to visit, why not take the cremated remains on a final trip and scatter them there? Always check for local regulations regarding this, but our experienced directors can give you general guidance. Even if it is in another state or country, it’s possible to take the cremated remains on a plane, but it’s important that you’re aware of the TSA and airline requirements so you’re not surprised at the airport. Additionally, if you want to take your loved one’s cremated remains to another country, each country has their own specific requirements you need to comply with. Again, we’re here to help you understand what might be required.
