A Columbarium Program Offers Compassion
Your group is excited it has made the decision to include a Columbarium on the campus. The committee chose the perfect design and construction partner, loves the master plan. Enough niches have been sold so construction of the first phase has been completed. The tracking of the sales online is easy and everything is going great! There is a death of a member and the family approaches you needing help. You are ready to offer guidance in selecting a niche, but realize their grief is deep and they really need your help and compassion.
Columbarium – A Ministry
“Death ends a life, not a relationship”. It is the relationship that is important. The relationship you are building with the family and the relationship the family has with their loved one. You want to help the family to think through ways they can celebrate and remember their loved ones life.
What is a Tribute Center?
Tribute Centers can provide the organization with a vehicle for raising funds for other missions or endeavors while creating a place of spirit. Whether it is team spirit, school spirit, Military association spirit, or community spirit are the areas of interest that a Tribute Center can fulfill.
Why we Memorialize a Loved One
Choosing cremation doesn’t mean a person doesn’t want to be honored, memorialized… remembered. Some individuals want to be cremated and then scattered, but they can still be memorialized. It is important to memorialize because it says that their life mattered. A monument, whether it is a plaque on the outside of a niche, or a plaque on a memorial wall; serves as an everlasting tribute to a life worth remembering. It is a final gift.
Columbarium is a Memorial - because We Love Them!
I think we all have a desire to be remembered and to remember our loved ones. Psychologists tell those who suffer the loss of a loved-one to establish a permanent memorial. Memorialization assures the living that the person we lost will never be forgotten. Having their cremains put into a niche in a columbarium gives us a place to visit, and gives a peace of mind knowing that our special person is “close by”.
How is a Columbarium Installed?
If the committee has done their job, top to bottom, the decision for the installation is rather simple. The company selected by the committee has their own installation division along with their own construction crew. Professional installation of your columbarium project is the only proper decision for the committee to make as it will insure complete success and satisfaction at the conclusion of the project.
