You have many different options from which to choose when considering memorialization of your loved one. This is a time-honored tradition that has been practiced for centuries. A memorial is a tribute to a life lived and provides a focal point for remembrance, as well as a record for future generations. The type of memorial you choose is a personal decision.
With cremation, your options are numerous. Permanent placement means placing your loved one in a specially designed urn garden, interment in a cemetery plot (earth burial) or placement in a niche in a columbarium at a cemetery. This will provide for a secure place for your loved one and a permanent memorial for family and friends to visit.
Should you choose to take a loved one’s urn home, it is important to consider your long-term plans for the safe-keeping of the urn. Typically, subsequent generations of family members are not as open to having one or multiple sets of cremated remains stored in the family home. We encourage you to allow us to provide you information regarding available options for permanent placement of your loved one.
