This means creating a dedicated place for family and friends to connect and remember your loved one. Of course, the relationship and life you created with your loved one has left you with cherished memories that will be forever embedded in your heart. Some individuals want a permanent place of rest for their loved one. Such as a cemetery or mausoleum. Often families decide to take the cremated remains of their loved home, or scatter in a special place. Your choice is personal and we understand that. We can assist you in whatever decisions you make.
It has been said that for permanent memorialization of your loved one "first look to your heart, and there the memories and love will be found"
In our family resource guide you will find a list of local cemeteries if you are considering considering purchasing a permanent place for you or 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.
Also, many families are choosing to scatter the cremated remains of their loved one in a favorite place; the ocean, or even in the skies above. While that may seem fitting at the time, it means that you do not have a consistent place to connect with the memories of the person you loved so dearly.
Having such permanent place - in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden - that can be visited regularly by family and friends is an essential part of the time following a death. It becomes a focal point of memorialization, and gives everyone a special place to go to remember your loved one, or to commemorate important occasions. It can help to make a birthday or anniversary less painful.
A permanent place to reflect on your loved one becomes a way of connecting to a family's past. Visiting the resting place of grandparents or great-grandparents may provide children with an anchor to their personal history. It is a connection to the past, to love shared. It truly honors the relationship you still have – and will always have – with that person.
