When you took your vows at your wedding, you meant them. However, you might have had an issue with one certain vow…the part that says, ‘until death parts us.’ You don’t want to be separated from your spouse, even then. And while one of you may very well pass on before the other, with cremation services in Elton, PA, you might be able to be together forever in the future once you are both gone. Here are a few examples of ways your remains can be placed together.
Burial In The Same Plot
Once you and your spouse are both cremated, your urns could be placed together in one burial plot in the cemetery. Or, if you are buried in a family garden, you can be placed together there as well. You might bury the person who dies first and then the other follows later. Or, you can keep the urn of your spouse until you pass on and you can both be buried together at the same time. It’s a nice way to stay together, even after death.
If being in the same plot doesn’t seem like enough to you, there are actually urns that allow more than one person to be contained. Companion urns come in a variety of different styles. You can get an urn that has two compartments where you can each have your own, or you can get an urn that has one big compartment where your ashes will be mixed together once you are both cremated. These urns are larger than ordinary urns because they will be for two people and not just one.
Scattering In The Same Location
Scattering is another honorable thing you can do for a loved one when they pass on, and it’s something you can ask for when you pass on as well. If you want to be with your spouse forever in that way, you could have both of your ashes scattered in the same location. You could scatter them and then later, have your own ashes scattered in the same place. Or, again, you can keep your spouse in an urn and then when you pass on, have both of you scattered together at the same time.
Cremation Jewelry Can Share Space
If you like the idea of cremation jewelry, and your spouse passes on first, you might get a piece and put some of their ashes inside. In the future, when you pass on, you can have some of your ashes put into the same cremation jewelry piece. That piece can be a real family heirloom that gets passed down through the generations and you and your spouse are together inside.
When you are trying to figure out what you and your spouse want for your final services, think about how you can remain together after death through cremation services in Elton, PA and the variety of options you have available to you for final resting places. There are plenty of options to consider and the professionals can help you get everything set up.
