Keeping Loved Ones Close with Keepsakes
The days, weeks, months, and even years after the loss of a loved one can be challenging. Holidays can be especially difficult. Often, we can bridge the sad feelings of physical separation from our loved one with special keepsakes that bring them close to us in heart.
That’s why Krause Funeral Home offers many keepsake items to remember and celebrate your loved one long after the funeral has ended.
One such item is called “Thumbies.” Thumbies are a special line of beautifully crafted necklaces, bracelets, pins, or other jewelry with an imprint of your loved one’s thumbprint in the center. If a family so wishes, our staff can take fingerprints at the time of death and will work with a reputable vendor to have your custom piece created. These can be used as gifts at holidays, birthdays, graduations, or simply as a commemorative piece.
We also offer keepsake jewelry that holds a portion of the cremated remains inside. We have necklaces and bracelets with angels, crosses, and other meaningful symbols designed to safely protect your loved one’s cremated remains.
If your loved one served in the military, another option is a decorative flag case. At the time of burial, the family is given a flag from the President of the United States thanking the veteran for his or her service. Afterwards, families often tell us they need something to keep the flag clean and appropriate for display. A wonderful way to honor your loved one is with a flag case that can be eloquently displayed in your home.
At Krause, we want to ensure your loved one’s memory lives on, and we are more than happy to help you find a meaningful way to memorialize the life that was lived.
