It’s not easy to let go of a loved one, which is why many families choose to memorialize deceased relatives. This process is especially important for families that choose cremation instead of burial. At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we recommend taking the steps mentioned below to memorialize your loved ones:

1. Plant a Tree

A tree is a gentle and resilient entity; it helps the planet, adds greenery to the environment, and can be an excellent representation of your loved ones. You can use the deceased person’s favorite tree or select a plant that represents their personality.

2. Dedicate a Memorial Bench

This is a very popular way memorialize loved ones. Choose a location or park your loved one cherished, and place the memorial bench there. For example, if you walked in the neighborhood park with your loved one regularly, you might want to place the bench there. Family members and friends of the deceased person can sit on the beach and spend some time remembering their loved one.

3. Start a Charity or a Scholarship

Starting a charity or a scholarship in your loved one’s name is an excellent way to memorialize them. You’re help the less fortunate and spreading goodwill in the deceased person’s name. This ensures your loved one has a great and enduring legacy.

4. Create a Mural of Old Photographs

Photographs of loved ones are usually stored away in a box and rarely see the light of day. It’s a good idea to choose a few great photographs with good memories associated with them and create a mural. Whenever you see this mural, you’ll recall good memories and feel happy.
