There are a variety of options available to honor their memory and keep them close. Here are just a few ideas, and if you'd like help creating a memorial service for your loved one, contact us today.

Bury or Scatter Ashes

One popular choice is to bury or scatter the ashes in a special place, such as a park or other natural area that was meaningful to your loved one during their life. If you choose to bury the ashes, select a suitable biodegradable urn that will not harm the soil or disrupt the environment.

Commemorative Service or Event

You could also hold a commemorative service or event in honor of your loved one, such as a balloon release, tree-planting ceremony, or outdoor gathering. This is an excellent way to share memories and create new ones with family and friends.

Create Jewelry and Other Keepsakes

You can also have a portion of the ashes set in custom jewelry and other keepsakes so that you always remember your loved one. Examples include pendants, rings, urns, and even glass paperweights.

Send to a Space Memorial

If you are feeling particularly adventurous, you can arrange for your loved one’s ashes to be sent into space as part of a memorial service. Working with the right company makes this process simple and affordable.
