"He won't have a headstone," fretted Daisy. We were speaking of her son, my late husband, and my intention to settle his cremains outside their urn.
It won't be a headstone, for there is no gravesite. But, he will have a marker, I assured her.
The marker will commemorate the lives of people whose cremains are returned to nature. Further, it will serve as a memorial for those whose physical body was never recovered and is presumed by family to now be part of nature.
All are welcome to participate in the establishment of this marker in tribute to their loved one. Participation will be by donation, with $100 per memorialized person as the suggested amount.
Please use the Directives page from this website to participate, if you are also sending cremains to Parkland Peace for settling.
Otherwise, to participate, please provide the information requested on the form below.
Halo Memorial Center's design and location are to be announced. The initial concept is that the design will be a spiral-shaped walkway with a light house as the monument's center.
