A Permanent Memorial

A Permanent Memorial

After the funeral is over, a permanent memorial can provide family and friends with a dedicated place to continue their healing journey.

A Lasting Tribute

The grieving process doesn't end when the funeral does. Oftentimes, the 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 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.

Ordering Your Memorial

There is no direct answer to when you'll need to erect a permanent memorial; it depends on the cemetery and which type of marker you would like to use. Generally speaking, you will have to wait several weeks to up to several months to make sure that by the time your memorial is placed, any dirt around the grave will have settled. A new grave takes some time to settle and can move around, especially during rainy seasons. While this means you might not have the monument ready in time for the funeral service, giving the dirt time to move around and settle in place will help ensure that your memorial remains stable for years to come. Our professionals will work with you to determine the proper timing; we can also help with design ideas if you need any sort of assistance.
