Establishing A Permanent Memorial After Cremation

Coral Gables, FL cremation

Losing someone makes many people feel as if they have a broken connection in their lives. That person is no longer with them, and yet they will always be connected. Grieving is a difficult process and healing may be a long way off, but since Coral Gables, FL cremation is so popular, permanent memorials are becoming more important today.  

When a person is traditionally buried, there is always a place to go visit them and their memories at the gravesite. There is usually a headstone with their name and a few other details on it. That is somewhere sacred family can go when they are thinking of the person who passed on. With cremation, that can be different. If the ashes are scattered in a certain location, they might go there, but there’s nothing there left of the person to help them memorialize them. Here are a few reasons to consider a permanent memorial for someone who passed on and was cremated.  

It Provides A Mourning Place 

When you place a permanent memorial, like a park bench with the person’s name on it, for example, it gives you a place to visit and remember them and mourn their loss. You might feel as if you have access to the person who passed on with a specific place you can visit in their memory.  

It Gives A Connection 

A public place with a permanent memorial also gives those who are not close family members a place to mourn. After cremation, perhaps you have decided to keep your loved one’s ashes in an urn at home. That works for you, but what about friends and distant relatives who don’t have access to your home? These permanent memorials are a good connection for anyone.  

The Memories Move On 

The last thing you want is for your loved one to be forgotten. You know you won’t ever forget them, but a permanent memorial allows their name and memory to move on into the future. IT’s something that could exist for generations to come.  

Respectful Nature 

Creating something permanent for your loved one shows respect to them and gives you a way to remember them from now on. They may want to have been cremated, but something left behind to memorialize them is a great way to honor them.
