If someone close to you has died unexpectedly, there are certain things you can do to keep them in your heart. At Willowbrook Cemetery feels that several approaches may be used to achieve this objective, including the following:

1. Pick a Cemetery That Is Convenient For You

Keeping your loved one close is possible if you select a cemetery near your home for a conventional complete burial. It allows you to visit their cemetery anytime you want and saves you money on travel.

2. Plant Trees

You can memorialize a departed soul who loved nature by planting some trees in their memory. Some companies use cremated bones to make compost pods for the decedent’s relatives. Honoring the person by planting a tree or blooming plant in your garden is a beautiful way of keeping their memory alive.

3. Cremation 

If you wish to bring your departed loved one to your home, you may want to consider cremation rather than burial (especially if you live in another state, city, country, or continent). If you transport your loved ones’ ashes in a cremation urn to keep it in your home, you will not have to travel vast distances to the burial location.

4. Digital Photographs

Create a montage using digital photographs of a loved one, allowing you to remember the pleasant times you had with them anytime you look at the photos.

These are some simple ways to keep your loved one close to you. However, there are no specific rules about what you need to do in this respect. You can discuss these things with your family members and then decide how to do something memorable and meaningful. 

At Willowbrook Cemetery, we are here to make things easier for you during this difficult time. Our team will help you select the ideal resting place for your dear one at our beautiful cemetery.
