Memorialize Your Loved One with a Delicate Butterfly Urn
Who doesn't love to see a delicate butterfly flitting from flower to flower? Seemingly light as air, butterflies dance on the wind, drawing our eyes as they create a lovely splash of color against the backdrop of the sky, reminding us of life, hope, and the future. If you've recently experienced the loss of a friend, family member, or loved one, you may choose to commemorate their passing with a delicate butterfly urn.
Each Butterfly is Unique
Butterflies are a quintessential part of our outdoor experiences, but perhaps we've never given thought to how unique butterflies actually are. Though they are insects, they are beloved; and there are nearly 20,000 separate species of butterflies worldwide!
It is estimated that there are more than 20,000 species of butterflies and moths in the world, with an estimated 750 species found in North America from Canada to Mexico. Currently, there are more than 30 species listed on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's list of endangered or threatened species. (Virginia Zoo)
Even among these tens of thousands of species, every single butterfly is also unique in itself--much like your dearly departed loved one. Choosing a delicate butterfly urn to memorialize their life is a wonderful way to recognize their uniqueness.
Graceful and Delicate
Butterfly wings are extremely delicate. Composed of thin layers of chitin and covered in tiny scales, these airy wings are also shot through with a system of veins which can generally be seen in the right light. Though strong enough to support flight, these wings are also super flexible; however, because they're so delicate, they can easily be harmed by the wrong sort of touch.
Much like butterflies, your loved one may have brought a graceful and delicate beauty with them wherever they went. A delicate butterfly urn could be the perfect way to honor their memory.
Making a Difference
Butterflies aren't just beautiful, however. They are also quite useful to our world. As pollinators, they help ensure that we have enough food to eat. Crops such as tomatoes, apples, and many other types of fruits rely on pollinators for successful yields, and we have the butterflies to thank in part for each successful growing season.
In the natural cycle of life, butterflies make a real difference in our world. To commemorate the lives of those who made a difference for those around them, a delicate butterfly urn could be the right choice.
Symbols of Hope
Because of their vibrancy, butterflies have long symbolized life and hope:
Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life. Butterflies symbolize life struggles that people have endured to emerge as a better person.
When the time comes to commemorate the memories of those who have suffered greatly in this life, sometimes we feel at a loss. How do we honor not only who our loved one was as a person while simultaneously acknowledging all the hurt and pain they have endured in this life? Because of the deep meaning behind butterfly symbolism, sometimes the best way to do just that is by choosing a delicate butterfly urn as your loved one's final resting place.
Grief and Remembrance
No matter the circumstances, whenever we lose a friend, family member, or cherished loved one, words are rarely sufficient to express the fullness of our grief. That is why we so often turn to symbols to help us express the intangible qualities that made our loved ones truly special. Here at Green Meadow Memorials, we understand. With a delicate butterfly urn, you will be able to remember the cherished qualities that make your dearly departed truly unforgettable.
