If your family is going to scatter a loved one’s cremated remains following their cremation services in Coopersburg, PA, you’ll be able to pick from any number of places to do it. You can scatter remains at sea, in a national park, or even on your family’s own property. But you might want to give some serious thought to potentially scattering a loved one’s remains in a scattering garden found in a nearby cemetery. Take a look at some of the best reasons why scattering remains in a scattering garden would be a great option for you.
If your family decides to scatter a loved one’s remains at sea or in a national park, they obviously aren’t going to be able to keep the remains very close. This might cause some issues for some of your family members who wish they could maintain a connection with your loved one by feeling a closeness to their remains. Scattering a loved one’s remains in a scattering garden will enable them to keep this connection. You’ll be able to put your loved one’s remains in a place that won’t be very far from your home.
In the future, some of your family members might want to go and “visit” your loved one by going to the place where their remains were scattered. But it’s going to be challenging for them to do this if the remains are, say, out in the middle of the ocean. By putting a loved one’s remains in a scattering garden, you’ll provide yourself and other family members with a place to go when you want to visit your loved one’s remains. It’ll be so convenient for you all to get to the scattering garden where your loved one’s remains are.
If your family scatters your loved one’s remains out in nature after their Coopersburg, PA cremation, they’re likely going to get trampled on to at least some degree. There is a good chance that people and/or animals will walk over the spot where you scattered your loved one’s remains. If you would like to reduce the chances of this happening, you should stick a loved one’s remains in a scattering garden. You won’t have to be as worried about anyone or anything trampling all over your loved one’s remains.
There is often going to be a small price that you’ll have to pay to scatter someone’s remains in a scattering garden in a cemetery. But that price will typically be nothing compared to the price you would have to pay to travel somewhere else to scatter your loved one’s remains. You might be able to save yourself a nice chunk of change by scattering a loved one’s remains in a scattering garden versus scattering them somewhere else.
