Just last week, I heard Floyd Cramer’s version of “Heart and Soul” for the first time in years. The timing was perfect: I had been sitting at my desk thinking about how popular heart urns and heart keepsake urns are today. But, I stopped what I was doing, listened, and remembered a time from my early childhood.
I was probably about six or seven years old and at a neighbor’s house on a summer afternoon. Her name was ‘Mrs. Murphy’, and she’d take care of kids on the block when our moms had errands. She had a piano in her living room and I used to spend hours sitting on that uncomfortable piano bench, plinking out the tune with one finger, singing along:
“Heart and soul, I fell in love with you,
Heart and soul, the way a fool would do,
It was a lot of fun then, and a whole lot of fun to remember now. So much so that I had to do a bit of Internet research on the song, before getting back to heart keepsake urns.
Just a Little More about ‘Heart and Soul’
The song was originally composed years before I was born; way back in 1938, by Hoagy Carmichael and Frank Loesser. Since then it’s been redone by lots of folks: Floyd Cramer, the Cleftones, and Jan and Dean. Most recently it was the inspiration for the delightfully upbeat song from 2016, “Play that Song” by Train.
Talk about a leaving a legacy!
Now, Let’s Get Back to Heart Urns
As I was saying our collection of heart urns is very popular. After all, a heart is the universal symbol of love. Here are just a few of our most popular heart urns.
The first, the American-made Two Hearts as One is a companion urn, in that it holds the ashes of two adults. Hand-crafted in two pieces from solid bronze, each heart is an individual urn joined together. It’s truly a stunning tribute and takes my breath away every time I see it.
Medium size hearts are ideal for families that are sharing portions of the ashes or want to create a special memorial for a pet. Blue and white are popular colors.
The next three heart urns are tiny treasures, each measuring about 3 inches in length and width. These heart keepsake urns are made of metal and will hold a small amount of ashes, a lock of hair or other memento to someone loved with all your heart and soul. Each comes with its own display stand, and case.
