If you are going with a traditional service from the funeral homes in Newberry, FL, then burial in a cemetery for your loved one is the only option—and it’s an honorable option at that. If you consider cremation for your loved one, you can still have a cemetery burial, if you so choose. There are benefits of going that direction and it’s wise to consider those, along with the pros and cons of other options before you make a decision. Here are a few cemetery burial benefits for funeral and cremation services.
A Secure Place For Remains
One of the things you might think about a great deal when you are planning out a loved one’s final resting place is the security of their remains. You might want to ensure that they are safe in a location where they won’t be disturbed or harmed in any way. While lots of people appreciate scattering ashes, you might worry that your loved ones will scatter and you won’t know where they end up or what happens to them. Burial, after a funeral or cremation, will help you to know they are safe and secure for the duration.
Family Can Visit
Family members often like to honor a loved one after their final services and one traditional way to do that is to visit their final resting place. Having a gravesite for family members to visit can be cathartic for them. They can visit when they want to think about your loved one. They can bring flowers on that person’s birthday or on other special occasions. It’s a location anyone can access, within visiting hours.
A Permanent Memorial
Burying a loved one’s cremated remains, or honoring them after their funeral in that way, you automatically have a permanent memorial for them. You will likely choose a headstone or marker of some kind and that will act as a reminder as to who is buried in that location. You will place their name on the headstone, but you might also place a saying, a phrase, or something else that reminds everyone who they were.
Options For Further Spots
You might want to consider who all in your family wants to be buried in the future and when you bury one loved one, you can get plots around theirs in order for other family members to have a spot in the future. If you already have a loved one in a certain cemetery, you might have the option of a plot near theirs or, at the very least, your loved one can be within the same location so the family can visit both people in one trip.
