This means creating a dedicated place for family and friends to connect and remember your loved one.
A Consistent Place of Healing
In our modern society, people aren't given enough time to grieve their losses. The pressures of work, even the simple emotional need to ‘be busy,’ often bring the bereaved back into the ‘real’ world far too soon.
Also, many families are choosing to scatter the cremated remains of their loved one in a favorite place; the ocean, or even in the skies above. While that may seem fitting at the time, it means that you do not have a consistent place to connect with the memories of the person you loved so dearly.
Having such permanent place - in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden - that can be visited regularly by family and friends is an essential part of the time following a death. It becomes a focal point of memorialization, and gives everyone a special place to go to remember your loved one, or to commemorate important occasions. It can help to make a birthday or anniversary less painful.
A permanent place to reflect on your loved one becomes a way of connecting to a family's past. Visiting the resting place of grandparents or great-grandparents may provide children with an anchor to their personal history. It is a connection to the past, to love shared. It truly honors the relationship you still have – and will always have – with that person.
The Gardens at Willowcrest Park
Loose Funeral Home owns and operates it's own cemetery, The Gardens at Willowcrest Park. Our cemetery is different than any other cemetery you've been to. While it does not allow for burial, above ground options such as Mausoleums are available for those who chose not to be cremated.
It also is the only cemetery in the state that allows for pets and owners to be together, whether it be in scattering gardens, or their own private plot.
We invite you to learn more The Gardens at Willowcrest Park by visiting their website.
