One way to keep the cremated remains of a loved one around, without an urn shouting, “These are cremated remains!” is with a Remembrance Frame Urn/Memory Box.
These are custom picture frames with a hidden storage box in the back. The front area can be personalized to hold a photograph, memorabilia and an “In Memory” plaque. The storage area in the back of the frame can discreetly hold cremated remains or store other memorabilia. Remembrance Frame also offers a metal frame double-depth version which can serve as a niche urn holding the entirety of the body’s remains.
In this video, Frances Carasco and Patti Glick show the features of different Remembrance Frames. Families can order the frames through a funeral home or directly from the company online. Learn more at www.TheRemembranceFrame.com.
