...a dedicated place for family and friends to connect and remember your loved one.
A Consistent Place of Healing
In our modern society, we are not given enough time to grieve our losses. The pressures of work, even the simple emotional need to ‘be busy,’ often bring the bereaved back into the ‘real’ world far too soon.
Unfortunately, many families choose to scatter the cremated remains of their loved one in the ocean, the mountains, or other favorite place. While that may seem fitting at the time, it deprives family members and friends of a consistent place to connect with the memories of the person they loved so dearly.
Having a place - like a cemetery or mausoleum - that can be visited regularly by family and friends is essential to the healing process following a death. A permanent resting place is a focal point of memorialization and gives everyone a special place to go to remember and commemorate important occasions like birthdays and anniversaries.
Woodlawn Memorial Gardens is a perfect place to reflect on your loved one and connect to your family's past. Visiting the resting place of grandparents or great-grandparents provides children with an anchor to their personal history. It connects them to the past, to love shared. Visitation truly honors the relationship you still have – and will always have – with that person.
