The Cremationist's Perspective

"In place of the grave is the open niche, with its beautiful urn, the sacred and permanent abiding place of the pure cremated remains of those who have gone before. Those who have disposed of their dead in this way uniformly testify to the consolation there is in their ability to come into such close association with all that remains of what was once so dear to them. Because the urn is visible, almost tangible, close to the living; and purity and innocence are suggested by the knowledge that the cremated remains that rest within are not subject to decay, but are, themselves, in their imperishable nature, a symbol of everlasting life!"
