Spread Memorials With Cremation

Traditional burials are perfectly acceptable and something many families still utilize to say goodbye to a loved one. However, cremation in Henderson, NV has risen in popularity in recent decades and there are a number of reasons behind it. Many families find the versatile options highly attractive. In fact, families have found that they can spread memorials out to honor their loved ones even further. Here are a few examples: 

Have Multiple Memorials In Multiple Locations 

With cremation, there is no body (though there are ashes in an urn) so there doesn’t have to be one concrete location for the service. Family members that are in the same town as the loved one can have a memorial service there. Family members in another state or city can have their own memorial service. The loved one in question is honored in both locations, and any others that people want to have memorials within. 

Spread Ashes Amongst Family Members 

What do you plan to do with the ashes your loved one left behind? There are plenty of options, but some families like to share their family member by spreading the ashes amongst themselves. You can get several mini-urns, for example, and each family member can have a bit of the ashes. Ashes can be split into jewelry urns and be worn as well. Or, families can spread the ashes in a number of locations so there are several places to visit when they want to think of their loved one. 

Permanent Memorials 

When someone is traditionally buried, there is generally a headstone at the cemetery that is used as a permanent memorial location. With cremation, there is no one location so you can have as many as you’d like to remember your loved one. You might plant a tree in their honor, get a park bench named after them, place a brick in a walkway with their name on it, or any number of other things. The permanent memorials can be wherever you want them to be in whatever form you want them to hold. 

When it comes to cremation, the options are truly limitless. Many families like to have versatile options while others find them overwhelming and stick to traditional burial. Keep in mind that there are no hard and fast right or wrong answers. You simply have to do what you feel is best for your family. Either option, a traditional funeral or cremation, honors your loved one in a respectful manner.
