When we grieve, many of us yearn to have something we can see and touch to remind us of the one who is no longer here. You have cremated ashes but you want to do something more with them. While nothing could ever replace that life, choosing a planting for your home or garden is a powerful way to remember that special bond. A tree or plant is a living memorial – a way to express love that has not ended with death. When nourished by the cremated ashes, something extraordinary happens to the plant. It becomes a living symbol of a special life.
