Caskets are one of the areas you can use to help you budget a funeral. It has the greatest range of choices and thereby the greatest range of price points to choose from. Caskets generally come in a “standard”size, as well as youth and oversized options.There are really only a few “styles,” that is usually in metal or wood with interior fabrics of mostly velvet or crepe. Other Funeral Homes Decatur Illinois has, may not offer the expansive choices we do. Embellishment is where you will find the greatest variations! It’s like jewelry on a dressy outfit. Too much and it’s gets a bit gaudy…But, to each his own! Explore the options! Colors,shaped sides and corners, tufted cap panels or embroidered line drawings….flags and crosses and flowers galore.
Funeral Urns may have a long and ancient history, but in America, cremation is a fairly new cultural event, mostly gaining popularity within the last 30 years. The personality in the design of the Urn is meant to “reflect” the personality of the one that resides within. From handmade pottery to the generalized, assembly-line machine-made styles, each one is sized for an adult or a child by scale. Urns may be engraved and many can have laser etched photos, adding to the personalization.
BURIAL AND URN VAULTS:
A Vault is generally a cemetery requirement for burial of a casket for sure, with some cemeteries requiring one for the burial of an urn. Each one is more for the physics of burial, meaning the weight of the dirt on top. Graveside Services are popular in the spring and fall, so if a preferred personalized cap is desired for the vault, they are available with simple ornamentation with basic name and dates to fully covered photo collage option.
JEWELRY, GIFTWARE, KEEPSAKES AND HOME DÉCOR:
Often after a funeral, one of the things many of us miss the most are how the endearing “quirks” of the person who has died has touched our heart over the years. A fine piece of jewelry with their unique fingerprint, favorite saying and/or name and dates can be a tangible touch of that person who is now gone. A keepsake urn with a little bit of ashes divided among family members, may “keep the peace” in a sudden loss. Memorabilia collected as you cleaned out their estate, can now be kept within a formal shadow box for viewing. After you and extended family members have gathered pictures that were used for the Funeral Homes Decatur Illinois service, consider having them produced into a beautiful, personalized glossy photo books, (“Ages In Pages” Bound Photo Book) noting some cherished memories, to pass on the stories and treasured times onto the next generation.
MONUMENTS & MARKERS:
A Permanent memorial at the cemetery can be a plain as name and dates, but you don’t have to stay there. With today’s laser machines and color usage, the creative options for photos and/or a favorite homestead scene or vacation spot can well be within a reasonable price point. Why not put a little more effort into that legacy stone to express your family values to the next few generations? We produce very personal and unique stones, and beautiful 3-d bronze portraits.
Flowers at a funeral or memorial service may be a common setting, but they certainly can reflect a caring choice from someone who wants to encourage and sympathize with your loss. Later on, in another setting, you may find a “familiar” scent from some other flowers will “trigger” a generally peaceful response as you recall that service with a gentle smile.
