I have made a few urns for pets/people and I’ve learned that there is no reason to be in a hurry about it. The deceased won’t know the difference between being in a nice DIY urn or the plastic ones they are put in originally, & the bereaved will understand it taking more time to have a beautiful urn (as you made here) produced. There is simply no rush despite what a funeral director may or may not tell you.

It’s a absolute shame how the industry tries to take advantage of people during this time in their lives. There are strict Federal Laws regarding what they can “talk” you into & what they cannot do. Most do not know that you can pick a casket from an online retailer and the funeral parlor has to allow it in their parlor & that is just one tidbit of information regarding this topic, there are many more but I’ll not take up more time talking about them. All of the funeral directors in my area know me well as I’ve gone with dozens of family and friends to help arrange things which resulted in the funeral services going from thousands to a few hundred. I literally detest these type of business because of how they attempt to profit from their deceptive practices.

Anyway, you done a very nice job and your heart was in the absolute right place in doing this project!
