3 Unique Ways To Honor A Loved One That Has Been Cremated

If your loved one has chosen cremation over a traditional burial, you may be looking for a beautiful and unique way to honor them. The good news is that cremation offers a virtually endless number of options when it comes to storing or scattering your loved one's cremains. In this article, you can learn more about three of the unique options that you will have to choose from. 

#1: Scatter Your Loved One's Ashes As Part Of A Fireworks Display

When it comes to celebrating your loved one's life, there are not many options that are better than putting on a fireworks show. The unique part of this idea is that rather than using traditional fireworks, your loved one's ashes can be incorporated into one-of-a-kind fireworks. When the fireworks are set off, your loved one's ashes will be scattered over the area where the fireworks are displayed. This is a great way to scatter your loved one's ashes in a meaningful place while also bringing family and friends together to celebrate the life that they led. This type of celebration is appropriate for family members of all ages and is, therefore, a great idea for families with young children.

#2: Carry Your Loved One With You Through Memorial Jewelry

For many people, simply sticking their loved one's ashes on a mantel in their home is not enough. These individuals truly want to keep their loved ones close to them throughout their life. For these individuals, memorial jewelry can be a great way to accomplish this goal and honor the loved ones that they have lost. Memorial jewelry is custom-made jewelry that incorporates a small amount of your loved one's ashes into the jewelry itself. This jewelry is designed to last for a long time even with daily use and can be made to match your personal style.

#3: A One-Of-A-Kind Gun Salute

If your loved one was a hunter or gun lover, you can choose to honor them with a truly one-of-a-kind gun salute. This is done by having custom ammunition made using a small portion of your loved one's cremated remains. When this ammunition is fired as part of the gun salute, their ashes will be scattered over the area. When choosing this particular option, it is important to make sure that the area where your loved one wanted their ashes scattered is a safe area for live ammunition to be fired.
