|An urn you can believe in|
Bad news for embalmers. But great news for urn manufacturers.
Enter Cremation Solutions, who have launched a line of Personal Cremation Urns, a concept which may or may not have been inspired by Futurama.

Never forget a face!
Personal Cremation Urns for ashes are a new and exciting way to memorialize your loved one.
Now we can create a custom cremation urn for ashes in the image of your loved one or favorite celebrity or hero, even President Obama!
Personal Urns for ashes combine art and the very latest in technology to create a family heirloom that will be cherished for generations.
They are built from just one or two photographs of any persons face. They are made of a tough polymere compond and a solid marble base. This is the most heartwarming and special memorial product available anywhere - "A Personal Urn."
Personal urns can have hair added digitaly for short haired people, as in the sample of President Obama. For longer hair we can add a wig to your specifications.
The Full sized Personal Urn for ashes stands at 11" and will hold all of the ashes of an adult.
Keepsake sized Personal Urn for ashes stands at 6" and will hold a portion of the cremation ashes.
|Hair today, gone tomorrow|
One would assume that if the 6" won't hold all the ashes of an adult, it would be ideal for those who wish to spread the ashes among family members. Perhaps as key chains, or hood ornaments.
Then there's this:
We will send you a proof of the Personal Urn for your comments and approval before we go ahead and manufacture.Heh.
