As an individual who wrestled with my son leaving his beautiful physical form on earth, I come to realize it's only temporary so that we can perform the mission we came to do. When we lose someone and were not there when they pass, we become anxious about losing anything associated with their physical being.
I found recently someone who felt they needed their ashes in order to feel them. However, as sorry as I was for their loss, if I may say so without sounding harsh, we don't have to worry about having their ashes because you have his Spirit right beside you. He sees you and will bring you comfort if you speak with him. Remember, the body is a suit of clothing we chose before coming into existence, then when it's time to go, we shed the body but not the Spirit.
