My dearest friend passed away at the end of May. I was struggling trying to find the perfect urn for her ashes. I ordered one initially from another source but it was a mere joke of the one pictured. It actually looked as if a child had done the enameling. After sending that one back I realized what I wanted for her, a cardinal urn. When I came across this beautiful urn on the Urn Garden site, I knew it was the one. Only problem was, they were sold out. I called their number and left a heartfelt message that I so wanted one of those urns. To my very pleasant surprise, the owner called me back within hours. She explained that they had an order of then coming in very soon. We stayed in touch and I got one within a week. It is a gorgeous urn. Nothing cartoonish or low quality at all. Simple cardinal elegance and beauty. If you know the spiritual significance of the cardinal, there is not a better urn out there or a better company to buy it from than the Urn Garden.
I had searched the internet for sometime for the perfect urn for my Mother's ashes. When I found this one, I knew it was the one. I recieved the urn the other day and it is just perfect. The cardinal is well done and the dogwood flowers add a nice touch. Very pleased with my decision.
Only two issues with the urn, 1. the engraving was in gold and needed to be darker to read easily, 2. the lid is very difficult to screw on unless it is in exactly the right position. Minor issues and
otherwise very pleased with the urn. It is very pretty, arrived quickly and with no damage.
