What does one do with the cremated remains (ashes/cremains) of their loved one?
Usually one of three things happens. The family (1) will keep the urn in their possession (to be kept on the Mantle, Dresser, etc.), (2) scatter the cremains in a location they think their loved one would have wanted, or (3) bury the urn in a cemetery. This is a personal decision to be made by the family.
