Q. Do I need an urn?

A. Every funeral home supplies nice urns, including us.  But I find some of the best urns are the ones the family brings from home.  Drop by and ask me about the ‘urns’ families brought in from home: the Elvis urn, the tool box urn, or the cookie jar urn that fit their loved one to a T!
