Items You Can Order to Remember Your Loved One

Fingerprint | Hansen-Spear Funeral Home - Quincy, Illinois

We know that the days, weeks, months, and even years after the loss of a loved one can seem impossible.  Holidays, birthdays, weddings, and births all make us wish the person were still here to enjoy with us.  That is why our funeral home offers many ways to remember and celebrate your loved one long after the funeral.

One way is through keepsake jewelry.  This is a beautiful way to feel you always have a part of your loved one with you.  We find families often value “Thumbies”, which are beautiful necklaces, bracelets, pins, or whatever jewelry you desire with an imprint of your loved one’s thumbprint in the center.

When my grandmother, Charlotte Spear, died in 2007, our minds were focused on the funeral, our family, and our grief.  It was not until a few months after her service, when we thought about ordering keepsakes, that we realized no one had taken her fingerprint.

When we take a family’s loved one into our care, we take prints to keep in our secure files so if you decide long after the service that you would like “Thumbies” made, we can do that for you.  These are gifts that can be given at the holidays, birthdays or graduations.  (Click for more information on Thumbies Keepsake Jewelry)

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.

Another option, if your loved one served in the military, is decorative flag cases.  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.  After, families say 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 to elegantly display in your home.

We want to help you make sure your loved one’s memory lives on.  These are only a few ideas.  We will be more than happy to help you find a meaningful way to memorialize the life that was lived.
