    A company is offering a unique keepsake of the dearly departed - an urn shaped like their head.

    The urns come in a full-sized version, able to "hold all of the ashes of any adult" or in 'Keepsake-sized', which hold a portion of the ashes and offer a smaller version of the deceased's head for display.

    They are created from one or two photographs.

    The company behind them claims the 'personal urns' are a 'new and exciting' way to memorialise your loved one.

    At least the keepsake version doesn't come as a pendant.

    It wouldn't fit into the columbarium niches at Arlington; we had to be VERY careful about shape and size for that.

    If my sister or neices violate my wish to be buried and have me cremated anyways, I'm going to add a codicil to my will that requires them to display my ashes in such a manner.

    That should ensure that my wishes are respected, and I get buried at Grandlawn with the rest of the Miners.

    Not to deture from the fun of making fun of such a ridiculous product (I hope Gene Simmons buys one, full makeup and tounge hanging out), it is just me or are we rapidly degenerating into a culture of memorial worshipers, not too far from the Egyptians? Every other car I see on the road has a "in memory of ....." decal on the window, our highways are lined with white crosses, and even if it's not Memorial Day, more and more headstones are piled with toys, notes, ect. Why the need to announce our losses to the masses?

    Just sayin'.

    I've noticed this myself: "In memory..." car thingies, tattooing in memory of the dead, and all those horrible shrine things with the stuffed animals and the candles.

    I put it up to a lack of organized religion. If you belong to a church you automatically get all the end-of-life ceremony and remembrance. You have a real funeral, a real burial, a prescribed period of mourning along with handy mourners, prayer lists, anniversary remembrance, etc. You don't have to make it all up yourself with plastic flowers from Wal-Mart.
