Memorials

A memorial is an event that commemorates someone, typically after a death. Unlike a funeral, the body is not typically present, but many of the practices are the same.

Creative memorial ideas

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to honoring a loss. Memorials come in all shapes and sizes, and this leaves a lot of room for personalization. No matter how you choose to honor your loved ones, make it count. Being creative with your memorial ideas can bring you closer to a loved one's memory. From a memorial garden to a unique diamond created from their ashes, these small details tell someone's story.
