How a Permanent Resting Place Can Help Your Loved Ones Cope With Grief

Choosing a final resting place is an important part of making your end of life arrangements. To help your loved ones in the grieving process, we recommend choosing a permanent resting place. 

It’s often hard to accept the finality of death, especially in this pandemic, as many are unable to join together to honor and memorialize those they have lost. 

For those who are grieving, it’s important to have a physical place to visit; to say goodbye, to celebrate a special holiday, or simply feel more connected. In spending time at your final resting place, your loved ones are able to connect with your memory. This important ritual of visiting your final resting place can help bereaved family members and friends cope with their grief after you pass. 

“I believe that mourners receive a tremendous sense of inner peace and closure when they visit the burial site of their loved ones. They are able to reminisce and connect with the past… Often, when mourners weren’t able to say their final goodbyes and important things are left unsaid, a visit to the graveside offers an opportunity to share their feelings in a therapeutic manner.” – Rabbi Zev Schostak

When making your funeral and cemetery plans, don’t overlook the power of a final resting place – a lasting gift for those you love most.

Forest Lawn’s New Mausoleum

Construction progresses throughout the winter on Forest Lawn Cemetery’s Mausoleum, completion date set for spring 2021.

The mausoleum’s permanent memorial options include interior and exterior crypts and niches, which can be commissioned with glass or granite fronts. In having a permanent resting place inside Forest Lawn’s new mausoleum structure, friends and family who visit will be protected from the elements, a welcome relief, especially in our cold Nebraska winters.
