"My Parkland Peace" is your serenity. You'll have this good feeling when you establish an action plan for your own cremains. You'll deserve your tranquility, because you'll be protecting the health and well-being of your loved ones. Below, see how much your advance arrangements will matter to them.
For your serenity, ensure that through Parkland Peace your cremains will become part of Earthís life cycle. Settling in a parkland is a natural conclusion for the physical part of your being.
For your further quietude, know this: by involving Parkland Peace, you will be helping your family to heal. They will never stop loving and missing you, but by helping them to heal you will be protecting their health. The sadness, anguish and guilt of storing cremains at home can be very hard on family members.
The process of storing your cremains may begin with contention over which family member will retain them. The host places the container prominently in his home. In time, he realizes that he keeps you with him through happy remembrances. The urn becomes a source of sadness, for it reminds him of his grief.
Things begin happening that ultimately prompt him to put the container of your cremains into a less prominent place, perhaps even into a drawer or closet. He anguishes over the displacement, feeling that he is letting you down. He justifies the move. He believes that it will be temporary, and is being done only because company is coming or the space on the shelf is needed for something else. But, he does not put it back.
Thatís when the guilt begins. The guilt is compounded when he has to move the package even further away, to a basement, garage or storage shed. His own life needs the drawer and closet space. Perhaps his circumstances are changing, or another family member is asking for the further removal of the cremains container. Conflict and embarrassment surface.
You can help your family with the painful "letting go" process. Tell your family that you want your settlement handled by the professionals of Parkland Peace. Itís okay to talk about this.
