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”.
