Elegant Cremation Urns. Compassionate Service.
At a time when we most needed something beautiful and meaningful, we found Modern Memorials. What might have been a difficult and disappointing experience instead became one of the highlights of our tribute to our mother. First and foremost, the personal attention and sensitivity of Kate Ottenberg was a great comfort. She responded immediately to our inquiry, helped with our choice, and respected our budget. Her help was invaluable.The beautiful and unique design of the mother of pearl urn was so reminiscent of our loved one’s taste, and was the perfect recognition of her sensibilities. The director of the cemetery remarked on the unique quality of the urn and asked for Modern Memorials’ contact information so that he could offer it to others. If you are in need of something exquisite to last through the ages, this is where you will find it.
Death is the hardest thing. My still young husband died after a fierce battle with cancer. We got married two months after his diagnosis. I dreaded shopping for an urn, but when I found this site, a wave of relief filled my heart. Kate has been so compassionate and even went to look for a different engraver when I told her I wanted a specific font. I ordered a wooden keepsake urn to take "him" on adventures with me and a very elegant glass urn in ivory and blue swirls for our home. After the first contact, I knew I was in the best of hands. Kate, you provide the best of service, and the prices are totally fair for these high quality products.
I told my doctor when my husband was dying that I could never keep his ashes in the house as it would upset me. But when he passed, I found a beautiful urn on your site. It sits on my mantle and every time I pass it I feel he is still with me. I am so glad I did this. Thank you.
We ordered the Cedar Wood Urn for Baxter who passed two weeks ago. It is on the mantle just below his portrait. I feel very comforted when I go in the library. Baxter was eighteen and certainly the best dog ever. We always wanted the best for him. That is why we wanted him to have the most beautiful urn available. Thank you for all of your caring and sensitivity in helping us make a excellent choice.
