It provides a focal point for memorializing your loved ones. To remember, and to be remembered, are natural human needs. Every life makes an impact on others and deserves to have a permanent, public place of memorialization – a place where family, friends and future generations can go to visit and remember. It also provides comfort after services and the funeral are over.
Throughout human history, memorialization of the dead has been a key component of almost every culture. The Washington Monument, the Tomb of the Unknowns and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D. C., are examples of memorialization, which demonstrate that, throughout our history, we have always honored our dead.
Psychologists say that remembrance practices, from the funeral or memorial service to permanent memorialization, serve an important emotional function for survivors by helping to bring closure and allowing the healing process to begin. Providing a permanent resting place for the deceased is a dignified treatment for a loved one’s mortal remains, which fulfills the natural human desire for memorialization.
