Ashes & Funerals
Jan 29th, 2015 | Episode 2
In this episode, Jana and Brendon, answer two questions from the community. The first is from a mother of two young children who wonders what she can do with the ashes of her partner. The second from a young adult struggling with whether they should go to the funeral of a close friend’s mother. In this frank conversation, we discuss common and not so common options for what to do with ashes and outline some foundational questions to consider, both for adults and children when deciding.
Two resources with ideas for what to do with the ashes of someone who dies:
- A long list of options for ashes from Mental Floss
- Another list of 27 options for ashes from Urns Online
