What is permanent memorialization?/div>/div>

Permanent memorialization is a visual symbol through the establishment of markers/monuments or name plaques at a cemetery. It is a timehonored tradition practiced through the centuries. Selecting and establishing a permanent memorial for a family member or loved one not only satisfies an immediate need, but also fulfills the need to preserve our heritage and to provide future generations the opportunity to honor our loved ones.<

What are some considerations for scattering?

We understand why some people value scattering as a means of final disposition; however, there are important considerations that should be recognized before a decision is made. If scattering occurs in an undeveloped area it is important to note that it may be developed in the future or the land use may change, making it difficult for survivors to visit. Having a permanent place to visit is an important component of healthy grief resolution and the healing process. Roselawn Memorial Park is currently developing a scattering garden to meet the needs of survivors by providing the option to ceremoniously scatter the cremated remains of a loved one, while providing a permanent memorial that will provide current and future generations the opportunity to honor loved ones.
