  • Absolutely ok. He was part of both of you, if she wants and agrees, now its her time to keep the remains, 35 is old enough. And if she doesn't want to keep them, and since you want to feel free in starting a new chapter in your life with your new husband, which is totally understandable, well maybe you could consider letting go of the ashes in a natural enviroment with a beautiful private family ceremony,. Maybe out in the ocean or a beautiful lake somewhere? idk, i'm just suggesting some options that come to mind. Sometimes its time to let go. But it doesn't mean at all you will forget that special loved one. The way I see it, Its just closing one chapter to let open a new one. But whatever you choose to do, it will be the best answer. Only you and your daughter can decide what is best and what it in your hearts.

  • Ask her if she wants the cremains.

  • If he died while you were still married then i do not see the harm in keeping them. I think something like that your Husband would understand.

  • Proper? Is there some sort of etiquette about remains. If that what you want to do and she wants them then that's okay.
