The first time I viewed my father’s beautiful smile, glowing through my Spirit Memento urn, I was overcome with love and emotion. I felt his presence and his love for me; he was there with me, and proud to be a part of such a beautiful piece of art. I kept coming back to look at him, again and again, smiling at me as I remembered him. I was flooded by the childhood memories of Daddy teaching me how to waltz, play the organ "by ear", and swim at our favorite summer lake spot. I recalled his sheer delight in little children, and how much all of our pets adored him. Most of all, I remembered his wise advice about helping those less fortunate, and practicing compassion and non-judgment.
Later, when I found treasured items of my Dad's tucked away in my jewelry box, I realized that the urn compartment would be the perfect spot for the curly strawberry blonde lock of hair from his first haircut, the handkerchief with his name, and his gold pocket watch. I will treasure my father’s Spirit Urn forever, and be proud to pass it down for the generations to come.”

“As an 86 year-old great-grandmother, life has forced me to endure the unbearable – the loss of a son, and a granddaughter. These losses are the kind you never “get over”, but somehow you learn to “get through”, one day at a time. When I received the Spirit Memento Urn, as a gift from my daughter, my broken heart swelled with healing joy! The picture on the urn is of my son and granddaughter smiling happily, on the day he taught her to fish. Every time I look at this beautiful urn, and see their smiling faces, I smile, too! The heaviness I felt, over their passing, has eased. The Spirit Urn has given me the gift of renewed hope, and deepened my faith in the afterlife.”
