About In The Light Urns

Who We Are:

We are a family-owned cremation urn company and a leader in our profession; we have pioneered dozens of products through research and development. In the Light Urns is one of the most unique cremation urn companies today. We want our clients to have quality choices so that they are completely satisfied with their purchases.

We had been asked again and again for many personalized types of urns which were not previously available. Many we developed because we knew that when remembering someone, it is invaluable to have meaningful life experiences behind their final resting place. We are always looking for new ways to offer loving and comforting resting places for your loved one. If you have a request or suggestions, please contact us.

Our Story

After many experiences working with grieving women and men, at In The Light Urns, and after a short chain of events, I would like to share with those who come to our site looking for urns, the story behind the company at In The Light Urns.

In The Light Urns started about six years after the death of our oldest son, Ryan. He passed away at 14 years of age, of natural causes, on Mother's Day in 1995. This of course, was the most challenging time in our lives, for myself, my husband, and our younger son. There was no warning, and we lost our boy in an instant. This is how death comes, and how many of us deal with it.

For those who have had time with a dying loved one due to illness, there is time afforded for closure. This may be good for both the family and the one passing. Of course, we didn't experience this, and we know a sudden death was just as hard on our son who left us. Leaving so young and believing he will live to be an adult with a family, is a tragedy. For those left behind, life will never be the same, and loss is an emotion that is there, just under the surface of everyday life, for a lifetime.

No matter how a loved one has passed, we know many of those on our website daily have these same feelings of grief, loss, or even guilt over being here, while their loved one is gone. We do understand these feelings and know that the last gift, that last purchase that you can ever make for your loved one needs to be something really special, something representative, of the life they lived. A fitting and lovely memorial. The last gift . . . the last offering of love.

In The Light Urns had become a company, but how did it find its name? Well, the name is representative of how we would want our loved ones to enjoy their new adventure of passing and the afterlife. Light is a place of safety, comfort, love, and happiness . . . which we hope is death. And so, In The Light Urns found its name.

We hope you can find the perfect urn or that last gift, where ever that may be, for your loved one. And we hope that your loved one has found "light" and keeps your love in their afterlife adventure. Our best to you. We hope grieving is short for you and them, and that you find comfort in the love that you shared.
