Huggable Urns.... Wish I had thought of this ....

I ran across Huggable Urns (they offer a most unique way to keep your loved one close to your heart) You can actually hug the urn.... you have to see the pictures to believe it!

The founder came up with the huggable urn concept because she felt that society really doesn't deal well with the whole dying process" she says, " it can make it very hard for people who are grieving, when they are forcibly separated from the remains of their loved one. When my own father died, his ashes were put into a plastic urn which was

stored in my mothers closet. All I wanted to do was hold him again,but the urn was hard and impersonal."Alexandra's search for a way to keep her father near and able to hug and feel close to him led her to develop these unique urns which are extremely soft and comforting to the touch, perfect for holding, and discreet and stylish enough to keep visible in the home without causing discomfort or embarrassment to visitors."I just love to sit and hold my father" she says. "Even though I know that he as moved on, I feel as if he is still watching over me in his own way. It gives me great comfort to know he is physically close and a part of my life, instead of being hidden away in a closet or scattered somewhere."

"Huggable Urns has become Alexandra's life's passion. She hopes that Huggable Urns will help break down the mystery and fear surrounding the natural process of death and grieving. Anything which makes it easier and can give a little comfort when you need it most, has to be a good thing!

And I have to agree..... what a cool concept.

I thought it was odd that my grandfather's cremains came in a velvet bag. I don't think the teddy bear thing was right for him, either. Now if they were in a 2 liter bottle of Pepsi, that would have summed up Grandpa pretty well.

Great blog, found you from the randomizier. I hope to come back again!
