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 our Hastings Funeral Home location to see the different ideas for your loved ones memorial piece.
