Losing a loved one is a painful experience that we all go through during our lives, and while the grieving process will take time, you can always find some relief in knowing that your loved one will be remembered fondly. At Fort Worth Memorials, we make it our mission to provide memorials and monuments for the departed that successfully celebrate their wonderful lives, and bring joy and relief for those who grieve them. Our bench memorials are one such provision for this purpose, and they’re a fantastic way for any family to celebrate the lives of their loved ones.
If you’re investing in a memorial bench for your loved one, you’ll want to be sure that it stands the test of time, and doesn’t begin to decay or deteriorate due to exposure to the elements. We create memorial benches from all sorts of different materials – granite, limestone, marble, and more – but they all have one thing in common: their stubborn robustness. Our stone benches are well equipped to deal with precipitation and moisture of all types, extreme temperature changes (something we deal with regularly in Fort Worth), and blustering winds too. There’s no circumstance where you’ll need to worry about your loved one’s memorial declining if you choose to place your trust in our service.
One of the significant advantages of choosing a bench memorial is the fact that they’re movable. Memorial benches are heavy and they’re designed to be solid so that they don’t fall over, but it is possible to have them moved to new places. It might be that you have a sentimental reason for wanting to move the bench, or perhaps it’s totally pragmatic, and the practical option is to move it – if you’re leaving the area, for example. You will have this option if you choose to go ahead with a bench memorial, something that wouldn’t be possible with other options available to you.
Comfort & Contemplation
With typical gravestones and markers, there isn’t always an easy way to relax at the site, which can make reflection a bit of a challenge. A memorial bench is a comfortable, dependable spot for you to sit and contemplate your loved one’s life, and your relationship with them. This is especially useful if you’re visiting the cemetery with friends or family members, as they can always accommodate more than one person. It might also provide a place for other grieving people to sit and reflect, and perhaps they’ll also ponder the life of your loved one.
There are several other practical advantages on offer if you choose to go with a bench memorial. One of the chief benefits is that you can actually place the memorial somewhere besides a cemetery – this isn’t an option for typical tombstones, but it isn’t unheard of for bench memorials to be placed elsewhere. If you do choose to keep it in a cemetery, you’ll be able to quickly identify it from a distance in a way that likely wouldn’t be possible with a headstone. These are just a couple of the many other practical benefits of choosing this option.
