Permanent Memorialization

This means creating a dedicated place for family and friends to connect and remember your loved one.

A Consistent Place of Healing

In our modern society, people aren't given enough time to grieve their losses. The pressures of work, even the simple emotional need to ‘be busy,’ often bring the bereaved back into the ‘real’ world far too soon.                                                                                                Many families are choosing to scatter the cremated remains of their loved one in a favorite place like the ocean, or in the skies above. While that may seem fitting at the time, you may also want to have a consistent place to connect with the memories of the person you loved.  Another option is to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain some of the cremated remains for placement in a more permanent location later.

Having a more permanent place - in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden - that can be visited by family and friends can be comforting following a death. It can become a focal point of memorialization, and gives everyone a special place to go to remember your loved one.

A permanent place to reflect on your loved one can  become a way of connecting to a family's past. For some, visiting the final resting place of grandparents or great-grandparents can provide an anchor to personal history. It is a connection to the past and to love shared.
