A Consistent Place of Healing

A Consistent Place of Healing

In today’s society, time demands often restrict or limit adequate time for individuals to grieve their losses. The funeral and burial of a loved one often takes place in a matter of days while the emotional elements of a loss sometimes last a lifetime. A place of remembrance can be a tremendous comfort to family and friends for years to come.

We have found that regardless of the means of burial such as traditional burial or cremation burial, having a “place of remembrance” can provide a setting for loved ones to cope with the loss of a loved one. While it is proper to follow the desires of loved ones which sometimes do not involve a cemetery, a family can benefit from having a specific place of remembrance dedicated to that individual.

Having a permanent place of remembrance – whether it is in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden – or even on a Memorial Wall, all serve as a focal point and provide a special place on occasions ordinarily recognized in our society. Whether it is a birthday, anniversary, holiday or a special service of remembrance a place of permanence can be a focal point for many future important occasions.

A permanent place as discussed can also be an avenue of connecting to a family's past. Many families become interested in their genealogical roots and personal family lineage. Often times these permanent memorials serve as the gate way to connecting these relationships from the past. Visiting the resting place of grandparents or great-grandparents can provide children with an anchor to their personal history and help educate. It is a connection to the past, to a love shared. It is a way of honoring a life lived, a relationship shared, and educating generations to come.

Committal Services

Committal Services

A graveside service takes place after a funeral and can be a profound healing experience.

Funerals often take place at the mortuary chapel or at your place of religious worship. In that case, an internment and committal service can follow at the graveside. These are important gatherings to commemorate a life and mark the end of physical closeness. Family and friends gather to commit a loved one to the earth and say final farewells together. A committal service is symbolic and a helpful step in healing.
