Modern Ways To Memorialize A Loved One
When you lose a loved one, you want something important to remember them by. A memorial of some sort can help grieving individuals remember happy times and keep the deceased individual in their hearts. At Arbutus Funeral Service, we have seen people use different kinds of memorial items and rituals to honor their loved ones. Here’s a look at some of them:
1. A Living Memorial
People today are conscious about the environment and want to reduce the burden on it. Creating a living memorial by planting a tree is the most eco-friendly way to honor a loved one. The tree will also grow bigger and stronger as the years pass, becoming a living memory of a loved one. The tree will live even when the current generation passes on, which is why many people love the idea of such a memorial.
People have been making memorial jewelry for centuries now and it is still a popular method. You can add the loved one’s picture to the jewelry or preserve a few strands of their hair. Different people have different preferences when it comes to jewelry pieces. Lockets, rings, and necklaces are the most commonly used items.
3. A Park Bench
A pack bench is a perfect way to honor a loved one because it helps the community. Elderly people, kids, and ill individuals can rest on the park bench. These benches also offer a great deal of comfort to the homeless, giving them a raised surface to sleep on when they have no older alternative. A bench will keep offering comfort to people for years to come, which is a great way to honor a loved one’s spirit.
