As we have heard, the cremation rate is on the rise across the country. There are numerous factors for this and the reasons behind choosing cremation are just as numerous. But what about after the cremation has taken place.
Have you planned for a dignified resting place, a permanent memorial, somewhere future generations may visit and reflect on their family, their heritage, where they came from?
Today, many families are opting to keep the cremated remains of a loved one at home, and while keeping the cremated remains of a loved one may ease the pain of their departure, what about the long term care. What happens when those entrusted to the care of the cremated remains pass away, move away or simply relocate the cremated remains to a closet.
The act of cremation is not a final disposition nor a funeral service, rather it is only a step in the process leading to a dignified and permanent memorial.
At Gethsemane Cemetery, we have a number of options for the permanent memorialization of cremated remains and we are adding new Cremation areas all the time.
