I am in a similar situation myself but my loved one is already gone. My mother died 2 years ago and wanted her body donated to I.U. Medical Center so students studying to become doctors & surgeons would have a body to “practice” on. Although the med center was very considerate & compassionate regarding her “gift” when they were finished with her, they sent her home to me a year later in a plain black plastic box.

I really did not expect them to provide an urn that was wood & they didn’t. I had planned to build her a nice urn to rest in from the moment they took her body away but it did not happen. After I received her remains I still could not bring myself to get the build done. I am so ashamed for not having it completed and it’s a never ending pain as I see her plastic box each and everyday. Someday I will get it done or at least that’s what I keep telling myself.

I just wanted to comment and to tell you that I completely understand your situation as well as let you know that there are others just like you out here. I pray that peace be with you and I hope you’ll have a lot more time with your special love my friend.
