Cremation memorials provide family and friends a place of remembrance and a feeling of closure. They are very appropriate for the disposition of cremains and the most popular is a bench.
The bench is designed to contain the ashes and can be placed in a variety of places - cemeteries, churches, yards or even a favorite hunting or fishing spot. They require only a small area, and offer a comfortable place to spend "reflection time" when visiting with your loved once.
Many families have placed a memorial on family property; landscaping and ponds can create a beautiful "tribute garden" to celebrate the life of loved ones.
