Photo engraved urns add a personal touch and sentimental value; each time you view the urn of the deceased, you will be reminded of the love you shared and the good times that were enjoyed.

Those who choose to keep the memorial in their home may choose photo engraved urns, simply because they are beautiful and have deep meaning.
There are two ways in which photo engraved urns are created. A printed picture may be displayed on the urn with a frame, or it can be engraved in to the surface. Typically, this process can be done on an urn that is crafted of marble, wood or brass and the results are exquisite. There is something very special and heart-felt about having a loved ones picture engraved on an urn, and it often helps loved ones keep an image in mind of a time when their loved one was vibrant and healthy.

Nothing can bring a loved one back, and while the pain of losing someone you love is always there, it does subside a bit over time. For some, photo engraved urns serve as a constant reminder of a loved one who has gone on; they may also help in beginning the healing process, so that in the future as you reflect on the departed you can do so with peace in your heart.
