Selecting a Final Resting Place after Cremation
After the cremation process is over, the funeral home is going to give back the ashes in a welllocked package for you to decide what to do with them. Choosing the final action or place for these ashes could be so difficult because many people feel the love and pain for their departed loved ones. If the deceased left an opinion on how his or her ashes should be disposed, it would not be difficult because it would be just following what was said by that person. However, if no opinion was left, then you need to find a way of getting the final resting place in the family plot.
You Can Scatter the Ashes in the Garden
Majority of the people recommend that their ashes should be scattered in their gardens. Although it is an easy process that requires no resources or money. You can leave a portion of the ashes so that you make a mark of the deceased for easy remembrance. On the garden that you are going to scatter the ashes, place the mark there and label the name, year of birth and date of death. This way, you will be able to trigger the memories of your loved one. A scattering permit may be needed even if it is your garden so that you get full authorization to do that.
Create a Monument or Object From the Ashes
The best final resting place would be good if a well-structured monument or figure is created that can be placed anywhere for people to view it. Many people make diamond rings for their loved ones after scattering the rest of the ashes in the garden. Others create animal figures like a lion. You can create anything from the ashes if you get the best artisans who know how to incorporate ashes with other materials to create a good figure.
Choose a Place on the Garden
If you want to make the deceased to be part of you, every day you wake up, choose a place on the garden and dig a tomb where you will preserve the ashes. This is the most common way that people do when they burry their loved ones but you need to create a good tomb. Tombs can be covered by small houses on top of them to ensure that they look nice and express a sign of care and love of the deceased from the people. Make sure that it is a family plot and not a public land.
Scatter the Ashes on the Mountains or Still Waters
In some cases, special places like mountain tops and Still waters show love and respect to the deceased. You are placing him or her where uninterrupted natural environment exists for peaceful stay. But you need a scattering regulation permit for you to do this to avoid getting into the hands of the law.
