Throughout time our culture has long had the practice of commemorating our departed loved ones with a permanent memorial, a physical reminder of a life lived, and a preservation of a person’s memory for generations to come. To remember, and be remembered, are natural human needs. 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. Having a permanent place that can be visited regularly by family and friends is an essential part of the healing process following a death. It becomes a focal point of memorialization, and gives everyone a special place to go to remember your loved one. 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.
Persons whose bodies have been cremated are typically memorialized with markers installed in cemeteries, often in family plot.
