A Turkish Proverb states that “A good companion shortens the longest road.” When navigating the road of life, nothing is more comforting than to travel it alongside the one you love. It seems only fitting that life-long companions should not have to be separated after their physical lives come to an end. Companion urns are a wonderful way to preserve the memories of loved ones, while creating a place to be forever united. Companion urns are offered in different styles to suit the wishes of the departed and their survivors.
For Burial at Sea
Biodegradable pillow urns offer companions a vehicle to serenely drift and flow into peaceful waters together. Once launched, the pillow urn will completely dissolve in around three minutes, leaving your loved ones’ remains to commingle into the water. These designs are both aesthetically pleasing and eco-friendly. The pillows are made to incorporate natural materials, such as flower petals and leaves into the biodegradable material. Materials such as marigold petals, rose petals, lilac, and fern grace the patterns of the exterior and offer a “green” way to send your loved ones back to nature. In addition to their looks and functionality, floating pillow burial urns are travel-friendly and TSA approved for those who need to transport the ashes to another location.
For Home Display
If you choose to keep the ashes of your loved ones at home, companion urns meant for display are available in different designs. Classic dual containers come in shapes such as traditional vase styles and teardrop designs. Interest-inspired styles are offered, commemorating a shared passion such as motor cycle riding, sports or nature. Artists like Kitty Cantrell have created gorgeous nature-inspired statues that double in function as urns. Her work features nature scenes and majestic renditions of wolves, whales, horses, and birds of prey. The top portion features one of her designs while the solid base allows an area for the storage of cremains.
For Scatter Ceremony
Some couples or longtime companions wish to have their ashes scattered at a place that was significant to them during their time together. It might be the place they first met or the place where they had their honeymoon. Wherever the location may be, it is so special to be able to honor their wishes and return them to a place that they held dear in their hearts. For this special occasion, scattering urns created just for the purpose of companion scattering are made. These containers are not only beautiful, but are also moderately priced.
Losing a partner, sibling, or friend can be a heavy burden for anyone to bear and this may be a good reason as to why choose cremation. Companion urns offer a deep eternal connection, uniting two people forever. Find peace in the thought that two souls will be forever united, whether physically or symbolically.
