When you decide to do cremation services in Eatonville, WA for a loved one who has passed away, that’s an honorable, respectful way to go. You will then eventually have to decide what you want to do for a memorial service, if you want to have one, and what you want for their final resting place. One of the nice things about cremation is that you are able to stop the timeline on those things once cremation is complete. You have all the time you want to make those decisions. If you feel you are ready to move forward with a resting place, here are some options to consider.
Bury The Remains In The Cemetery
Even cremated remains can still be buried in the cemetery and it’s a nice way to protect your loved one’s remains and give your family members somewhere to visit if they want to think about that person. It can also feel traditional and like a good stamp on the end of their life.
Place The Remains In A Columbarium
If you don’t like the idea of burial, but you do want to protect your loved one’s remains and give your family a place to visit, placing them in a columbarium in the cemetery is another good option. This also makes it easier to move them in the future if you change your mind or if you move to another location and what to take them along so they are closer.
Scatter The Remains
Scattering your loved one is another option to consider. It’s a popular thing to do with cremated remains and there are endless locations in which you can scatter ashes. Think about places that are special to your loved ones and that they enjoyed and that can help guide you to the right place for this type of ceremony.
Keep The Remains At Home

Place The Remains In Cremation Jewelry
