Fisherman Cremation Urns - Meaningful Memorials
There's something about the steady presence of fishermen. Day or night, rain or shine, there are always a few of them out on the boat or the lakeshore, bait on their hooks and backs to the wind. Even when schedules are packed and everything else in life is chaotic, they always found time to show up with a chair and a fishing pole. One of the best ways to memorialize our most beloved anglers is by choosing to commemorate them with reassuring fisherman urns.
The Long Wait
If there's one thing all fishermen have in common, it's patience. They move slowly, literally not rocking the boat. There's absolutely no rush as they bait their hook and prepare to cast off. After a cast, they'll sit in peace and silence, just waiting on that nibble. Who knows what thoughts go through their heads at such a time?
Sometimes, grief also feels like a long wait. What makes it difficult is that there's no set timetable for how long each stage in the grief cycle will last for each particular person:
You and the people around you may have expectations about how quickly you should move on. But grief changes over time, as you understand how different your life is without the person. We are all different and there is no timetable for how long it will take you.
As you cycle through the grief process, you may become frustrated that it's taking so long or that you don't seem to be recovering at the same rate as those around you. During times like that, it may be comforting to look at your reassuring fisherman urn and remember that waiting is part of the process.
Most anglers will fish alone to hit just the right spots or times of day they think are mostly likely to land their next big catch. Whether this is due to natural temperament or the desire to avoid the temptation to talk, fishermen tend to be the type to go it alone. Even when they do go fishing with a buddy, they often spread out along the shore, head in different directions upstream and downstream, or sit at opposite sides of the boat throughout most of their expedition.
Losing a friend, family member, or loved one can be an isolating experience. This is especially true if you were very close or shared a living space. You may feel especially alone or left behind during this time. A reassuring fisherman urn can remind you that solitude isn't always a negative experience.
Experienced anglers are avid students of nature. Over time, they've come to truly hear the outdoors, learning to read signs and interpret signals from mother nature and surrounding wildlife. Professional fishermen are no different; only in addition, they have developed interpersonal listening skills as well.
Fishers and related fishing workers need to work well with others—they take instructions from captains and others—so effective listening is critical.
As we cycle through the grief process, it's vital that we learn to listen to our surroundings as well. If we're willing to go outside and commune with nature, we may find that the same sounds that our fishermen loved can become a comfort to us. And if we're willing to listen to the care and condolences of the friends and loved ones who are still with us, we may very well be sped along on our process of healing.
Grief and Remembrance
No matter the circumstances of losing a friend or family member, we will struggle with grief. At first, memories of those we've lost will bring us comfort. Very soon, memories will spark pain for all we've lost. Then, after a time, the memories will circle back to comfort again. What better way to hold the memories of your dearly departed angler close than through choosing a reassuring fisherman urn as their final resting place?
