The way you choose to mark your loved one's place of burial is more than just a piece of bronze or granite.
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.
MEMORIALS AS UNIQUE AS THEIR LIVES
Memorialization of a loved one is often one of the last tangible thing we can do for someone who has died. Lawnwood has a wide and unique selection of memorials in all price ranges. We also offer help with making sure your veteran is properly remembered as well. Although originally designed for flat bronze memorials only, we have now diversified some or our sections for use of upright granite memorials as well.
