Cremation Memorialization

About Cremation Memorialization

Cremation, like traditional burial, should not be considered an end but a beginning of the preparation for memorialization. In 80% of all cremations a memorial service is held prior to, or directly after, the cremation takes place.

Permanent memorialization creates a lasting memorial and place of pilgrimage for present and future generations to pay respect to your loved one. It serves to preserve your family's heritage. Memorialization is also the tangible realization of the personal emotional journey, uniquely yours, which you experience when someone you love dies. It becomes a meaningful and unique symbol that bonds you and your loved one forever, preserving memories and providing a lasting expression of love and devotion. It provides a place of quietude for you to visit to gain peace of mind and heart. By interring those cherished remains, you pay respect to your past and link yourself forever to future generations.
