Do you dislike the idea of keeping a loved one’s cremated remains in your home following cremation services in Tucson, AZ but also hate the thought of burying them in the ground at a cemetery or scattering them someplace special? If so, there’s another option available to you. You can store your loved one’s remains in a niche in a columbarium. A columbarium is a structure in a cemetery that has niches that can be used for keeping cremated remains safe. Take a look at some of the benefits of storing remains in a niche below.
Provides protection for remains
If you keep a loved one’s remains at home after their Tucson, AZ cremation, they’ll probably be safe and sound for the most part. But there’s always a small chance that something could happen to them. They might get knocked over and spilled everywhere or destroyed in a fire. You can set them up with more protection than they would have otherwise by placing them in a niche in a columbarium. They’ll be safe in a niche for many years to come.
Makes it easy to visit the remains
Some of your family members might want to visit your loved one’s remains from time to time, and it isn’t going to be possible for them to do this if the remains are in your home. You can make this situation easier on everyone by placing the remains in a centralized location like a niche in a cemetery. This will make it so simple and convenient for your family members to visit your loved one’s remains whenever they want.
Makes it possible to create a permanent memorial for remains
Is your family interested in creating a permanent memorial for a loved one’s remains? This isn’t going to be an option when the remains are in your home. But it might be an option when you either bury a loved one’s remains in a cemetery or place the remains in a niche in a cemetery. This way, you can set up a permanent memorial for the remains and use it to pay tribute to your loved one and the wonderful life they led.
Stops remain from going missing
You might not think there is any possible way your loved one’s remains will go missing following their cremation. But crazy things happen when you’re moving around. If you want to avoid having your loved one’s remains go missing, sticking them into a cremation niche will be a great option.
