Q & A

Today I collected my dad’s Ern.  I am the one who will be holding it until we are ready to travel back to the Islands with it.  Have you had the opportunity to have an Ern in your home?  Where have you placed it? How do you feel about it being in your home?

    • Hi Brimstone,
      I’m so sorry you’ve had to go through this difficult time.  My dad has my mom’s urn on a shelf behind some photographs.  I personally would not like to keep an urn in my house.  After my dad passes, I will have his and my mom’s ashes buried together.

    • I have not had that to handle.  I personally do not want anyone’s ashes in my house.  Nothing against those who do..not at all..it’s just not for me.  

      My oldest sister wants her ashes spread over the ocean off of Beaufort, South Carolina w/the old song “Spirit in the Sky“.  

      I just don’t think I would want a loved one’s ashes in my house.

    • I’m with Mary, I’m not fond of having my loved ones remains in the home, let them go and be at peace in their final resting place which is in the ground. My inlaws have my father inlaws ashes in and Urn in their home and it is just creepy to me, but I however do want to be cremade and have my ashes places in a large body of water in one of the nearby lakes here in Michigan. But to each their own.

    • I have not, but my dad has his father’s ashes in his home. He was supposed to arrange for a date to get the family together and spread my grandpa’s ashes at the beach but I don’t think he’s been able to part with them even after 2 years now. frown

    • I had to collect my granny’s ern until we buried in her family grave. She was the first person close to me to die and it gave me great pleasure to bring her home for a few days . She was on the dining room table with candles and flowers for 3 days and it really helped with the grieving process. My sister had her for a day also. I’m not really into that sort of thing but grief affects people in different ways and it really helped. I also have kept a few of her ashes in a special box and it’s hidden in my living room . I feel she’s keeping an eye on me. Bit morbid, I know and unless you’ve been there you don’t know what you may do. X
