“Parting Stones”--Is this an option for my loved one’s cremated remains?
As a Funeral Director, I often hear families say that they have not decided on what to do with their loved one’s cremated remains. Do they bury their loved one in the family plot? Place them in the Mausoleum? Scatter them in a significant place? Set them up on a shelf? Do they add their loved one’s cremated remains to jewelry and keep them close at all times or mix their remains in blown glass for an ornamental keepsake?
While there are many options to choose from, I’d like to introduce you to a new option! New technology has developed a way to transform one’s cremated remains into a solid mass in the form of a stone. ‘Parting Stones’ are a new and creative way to transform your loved one into an object that can be kept together or divided amongst family or friends. An average person’s cremated remains can be transformed into approximately 25-30 stones. These stones can vary in colour and size, and are delivered to a family in a small keepsake box.
