How to Memorialize Someone After Death

There is no wrong way to keep a loved one’s memory alive. Memorializing someone after death makes you feel like their life still matters, even though they are gone. Not everyone has the same memorialization preferences, but here are some ideas on how to make it happen.

Plant a Tree

Planting a tree in memory of someone is a great way to memorialize them after death. This doesn’t have to be just any tree, but can also be an apple tree if they enjoyed making pies or would pick apples with their family and friends. Memorial trees for loved ones often become a place where you and your family go to remember together and leave tokens of remembrance.

Memorialize With a Photo

Everyone has an old cell phone or digital camera with photos on it that are forgotten because they’re in the dark abyss of technology. If you have many pictures, you can create an online photo album for your loved one to share with friends and family. Always looking back at old pictures is a great way to remember them, and you can add a photo of yourself or your loved ones to each picture for a true collage.

If you want a more unique way to memorialize a lost loved one’s photo, you can have us create a memorable piece of art. We’ve had the privilege and honor to create memorials for a few people locally and it’s a job we don’t take lightly.

Create a Memory Book

Memorabilia, such as favorite books and movies, hold special significance because it connects the living with their lost loved one. Creating a memory book is important because it’s the closest way to keep their memories alive, so you can have something special to always look back on. You can fill this with pictures and family stories, along with other mementos to help you remember your loved one.

Having an online version of a photo album also makes sharing easy, so you don’t have to worry about sharing with friends and family.

Get a Tattoo

Tattoos are becoming more popular in memorializing people, where a permanent body ink can symbolize someone you love while honoring their memory. Some tattoos are religious-centered or even an image of the person themselves. There is no wrong way to have a tattoo created in memory of someone, it’s all up to you.

Turn Their Ashes into Cremation Diamonds

Everyone has different preferences on how to memorialize someone after death. Some people want the ashes of their loved ones scattered, but the more popular trend is having them turned into cremation diamonds, which can be worn by yourself or passed down for generations to come.

These are created with real carbon from the deceased and you’ll have a beautiful ruby-like stone created from the process.

What do you plan to do after someone’s passing?

There are many options to choose from, which can give you a sense of control over a very difficult time. No matter what you chose, it will be a suitable way for your loved one to live on and continue being remembered for years to come.
