Temporary Memorials for Gravesites or Roadcrosses
There is an old saying that says ‘Grief is the price we pay for love’. Many can relate to this, especially those who have had to, unfortunately, grieve the loss of a loved one. There are no words that can adequately describe the complex emotions that follow such a traumatic event, especially if the loss is unexpected. Studies show that creating a tribute to a lost loved one can greatly help in coping with grief. Unfortunately, obtaining a permanent tribute can take a number of weeks, as they are often crafted with great precision, care - and ultimately, time - to withstand the ages. White that is true, it is often immediately after the loss, or burial, that a family can truly appreciate the significance of a tribute dedicated in honor of their loved one.
Temporary memorials offer a wonderful solution during this time of need. These beautiful tributes may not be permanent, but they still offer a remarkable way to preserve a special area. They can be elegantly personalized with any information, such as name, dates, and even a small verse. They are crafted of durable materials to withstand the elements as long as necessary, while maintaining dignified appearance. These wonderful grave markers can be placed in any location, such as a cemetery, or even used as a road-side tribute. Once the final marker or headstone is set, the temporary memorial can simply be discarded at the discretion of the family. An individual even shared that they placed their temporary tribute in a memorial garden planted in honor of their dearly departed, after the permanent memorial was set. Regardless, these temporary memorials will ensure that the area dedicated to a special individual remain marked at all times.
As mentioned before, the grief that is endured with the loss of a loved one can seem unbearable, to say the least. Having a permanent remembrance in honor of a loved one offers a way to share the memories left, and keep them alive, as it is in the hearts of their friends and family. A permanent area dedicated to a lost individual can also offer a place to go and reflect upon the memories shared with them, or simply pray or meditate. A temporary memorial will reserve a special area for the future placement of a permanent tribute, but these small tributes will not only mark a place on the earth - they will carry great significance and comfort during a difficult time.
