When your loved one’s cremated remains are made available to you, there are a number of respectful options you may choose to memorialize the decedent. Many families decide to inter cremated remains at the cemetery, which provides a beautiful, serene gathering place for families to come together and reflect. Consider speaking with a professional at the cemetery about memorializing your loved one’s cremated remains.
Before you make your decision, take a stroll through the cemetery and consider whether your surroundings would be an appropriate choice for your loved one’s final resting place. Visit the columbarium or niches where cremated remains may be interred.
Inglewood Park Cemetery offers respectful and dignified interment spaces in the Los Angeles area. We invite you to speak with a Memorial Counselor about our cemetery services and memorial options. Call (310) 412-6500.
It is an honor to be asked to give a eulogy at the cemetery or funeral service, but it can be difficult to know what to say. It’s best to have remarks prepared before you go to the cemetery. When you watch this video, you’ll hear some basic guidance on preparing a chronological eulogy.
Also known as a life history eulogy, this type of eulogy starts with basic information about the decedent’s life. Consider where and when the individual was born, how the individual met his or her partner, and where he or she worked. Next, write a few words about the decedent’s accomplishments and awards or recognitions he or she may have received before you move on to discuss important life experiences.
Inglewood Park Cemetery is honored to offer cemetery services for families in the Los Angeles area. For pre-planning or at-need guidance, please call (310) 412-6500 and let us know how our Memorial Counselors can help you.
Visiting a cemetery is a solemn, formal affair, and your clothing should reflect this. Before choosing an outfit for the burial, consider whether the family’s faith or cultural background calls for a particular style of clothing. Otherwise, you can follow some basic guidelines to select an appropriate outfit. Select clothing that covers most of your skin, including any tattoos. Choose clothing that does not call attention to yourself and that shows proper respect for the occasion.
It isn’t always necessary to wear only black clothing, although you may certainly do so if you wish. If you do choose other colors, select dark, somber colors like brown and navy blue. Jewelry and makeup should be kept to a minimum. For a graveside service at the cemetery, it’s best to wear flat shoes or shoes with a low, wedge heel; narrow heels (stilettos) will sink into the ground. (Always exercise caution when walking on the lawns, as surfaces may be uneven. Never step on the flat markers.)
