Honoring the accomplishments, individuality, and life journey of a loved one can go far beyond the service itself. We can help you explore how to best share memories, support healing, and create lasting tributes through video, memorial websites, personalized keepsakes, and other meaningful memorial items.
You can plan memorial services for loved ones after the remains have been buried or cremated. The timeframe for this service is anywhere from one week to a year afterwards, especially when you have family that is far apart and may not be able to get together for some time. We can help you plan a memorial service at one of our local funeral homes or another significant location to you and your family.
Post memorial services can include a reception or gathering where family and friends can gather, share fellowship and conversation.
When the funeral services are over and things settle down, we can help you create a peaceful place to find comfort and remember your loved one. A memorial makes it easier for family and friends to continue on their healing journey and return to their regular routines without losing that connection they feel to a loved one who has passed.
A Lasting Tribute
The grieving process doesn’t end when the funeral does. Oftentimes, the funeral services are just the first steps to healing and recovery. It can be hard for the bereaved to return to their regular routines so soon after the services are over, especially given the demands of the modern world and the limits that many employers place on allowed time for grieving.
Creating a lasting tribute and memorial can give family and friends a permanent place to visit when they need help feeling connected to the loved one who has passed. It serves as a focus for their memory, and provides a private space for reflection and peace. It can also serve as a location for family and friends to commemorate important occasions, and can help make it easier to cope on meaningful dates like birthdays or anniversaries. As the years pass, a permanent memorial can also become a link to the past for younger generations who may not have had the opportunity to meet the departed loved one during their lifetime.
We can help you create a lasting memorial item, whether a plaque, headstone marker, a bench for your yard or in your community. We invite you to visit any of our locations to see the different ideas for your loved ones memorial piece.
