A permanent place for gathering and healing allows family and friends to find comfort long after the services are over. Finding the perfect memorial pays tribute to your loved one by creating a space that’s all their own. Whether it’s at a cemetery, mausoleum or cremation garden, it gives everyone a special place to go to remember loved ones for generations to come.
A final resting place that is marked with flat bronze or granite memorials, designed to be a peaceful park-like setting. Memorials in this park can be personalized and designed by the family to best represent and share the life of their loved one.
A final resting place most often memorialized by an upright granite monument. These upright memorials can be personalized in size, color and design to best share the life of the deceased.
An above ground structure that is made to honor the deceased person. Mausoleums are a great way to create a personalized family tribute either through a walk-in private mausoleum, a private vestibule mausoleum, or one of our magnificent community buildings.
A special area within a cemetery for cremated remains to be ceremonially released to the earth with a memorial marker containing the loved one’s name. These markers can vary from small plaques to benches or a tree near the scattering space.
A columbarium is an above ground permanent placement option for cremated remains. Columbariums provide a wide array of options in size, style, and personalization to create a meaningful final resting place for friends and family to gather and visit.
An eco-cemetery, also known as a green cemetery, is becoming a more popular style of interment. Natural burials are the most common type of burial that takes place here, as they are environmentally friendly. Memorials may be replaced with a bush, rock or tree to symbolize the final resting place of a loved one.
Monuments for the Final Resting Place
If your loved one desired a monument, we can help you create a personalized monument for the burial place. One of our funeral directors can discuss your options with you to find the perfect monument, marker, or headstone for a final resting place.
Engraving on Existing Headstone
Have you or your loved one already chosen a headstone? If so, we can engrave the final etchings on the headstone, whether or not it was purchased through us. Things like dates, names, and other unique features cannot be etched onto a headstone before a passing, so we’ll work with you when the time is right to complete the headstone markings in full.
A Monument for a Home Memorial Garden
Those who have chosen to be cremated sometimes want to have their ashes scattered where they felt most at peace and filled with life. Some choose to be scattered at sea, given to various family members and friends, or even sent up into the skies above.
No matter how they choose to be scattered, family and friends deserve a place close to home to honor and remember a loved one. Many people are choosing to create home memorial gardens – the perfect place to surround their memory with living tributes. Our funeral directors can help you design the perfect monument to celebrate your loved one and fit your garden space.
A marker for your loved one’s final resting place is the perfect finishing touch to an area dedicated in their memory. If you have questions about permanent memorialization options, you can speak with a funeral expert by calling (703) 239-4943.
