Coping with the Loss of a Little One

And by little one, we mean, your beloved pets. Like any other living creature, pets pass on as well. And it is perfectly natural for you to be grieving an important part of your family. Sometimes it would seem to be an even bigger obstacle to grieve over the loss of a pet if you compare it to a human loved one. You will also have a smaller group of friends and family that can understand what you are going through. Not all people can sympathize and empathize as much when your beloved pets pass away. You won’t usually expect them to send you well-wishes, gifts, flowers, and comfort as you would when a relative passes away. It’s not exactly wrong but that is how the world works right now.

Aside from learning about a pet’s passing, what makes it more difficult at times is that you wouldn’t know why your beloved little creature has died. Not everyone wants to learn of the causes or sometimes there really is no way of knowing so closure might be a bit difficult to come by. On occasions, when you lose a pet and you’re not sure if it is just lost or has already passed, that just blurs the line of searching and grieving even further. It’s a loss but there is no definite way of how to go about it.

What can help you get through such a tough time would have to be doing something positive like celebrating the life of your beloved pet. You can choose to have a burial, cremation, or just hold a tribute with close friends and family who equally love your precious pet. This will help you get through that grieving process.

You can even choose to immortalize or memorialize your pet in its own personalized urn. You can put bits of its ashes or even fur in a specially-made pet urn necklace, which you can obviously carry around with you. Tap into your earth-friendly side and plant a tree or flower in your pet’s memory and place a memorial stone on it. Frame a photograph (if you haven’t already) or create a scrapbook for your pet. Or perhaps, this will be an opportunity for you to give back and volunteer or donate to a local animal shelter. By doing something good for someone else, that might help you feel better about your situation.

Make sure you don’t rush into getting a new pet though. It’s not for everyone. Some might not be able to find another pet to replace what they had.

Few Tips in Choosing Funeral Urns

As more and more people choose cremation the selection of urns is all the time increasing.  There are new selections coming to the market every single day.

An easy way to start your search is with the process of elimination.  You can simply cross off the options that won’t work for your loved one.  Shopping online has made the task a little easier.  The urns are divided onto separate pages to allow you to more easily find the one that is right for your situation.

There are urns that can be used for two people called a companion urn.  These can either be large capacity so you would be inside the same container or two urns adjoined. These urns are about 400 cubic inches which is the approximate weight of two adult individuals.

If the urn is for a baby or child there is a whole different style of urn for these.  There are sections that will specialize in baby or children designs.  You will find an urn that would be appropriate for the age group you need.

You can also get keepsake urns that can be used if the ashes are going to be shared among friends or family.  You may also want one of these if you are going to spread most of the ashes, but keep a small portion.  These little urns hold just a tiny amount and can be made to match a full size urn.  They can also be made in heart shapes or other pleasant shapes.

The selection for an adult individual is where the most choices will be.  You will want to decide what material the primary construction should be first. Some of these options are marble, wood, metal, plastic, ceramic, glass, or even biodegradable materials. There isn’t really a way to say which is most popular.  This is because there are so many different types of people that are being memorialized.

There are also special interest urns like angels, sports, religious symbols, etc.  These special urns sometimes are a perfect fit to memorialize someone.  There are found very traditional urns as well and that should be considered.

This will be a very hard and important as well.  You want to make the choice that you think that your friend or family member would most want.  It may be hard to overcome the sadness of the situation, but try to take your time and select the perfect urn for your situation.
