Some people regret scattering cremated remains:
Memorials present of method of identifying a place to remember family or other loved ones. An important function of memorials is to provide a sense of closure for those who are grieving. A common issue with scattering ashes is that there is no permanent area or identification to memorialize those who have passed. Without a proper memorial, it is difficult to remember or connect with those who have passed since there are no physical reminders. Seeing a permanent memorial and the name of a loved one will create the opportunity to connect with the deceased. Sometimes areas can change and beautiful areas that are great for scattering ashes will be turned into private areas or construction sites in the future, therefore limiting your ability to use that site as a visitation area. Columbarium gardens will make sure that your loved one will have a permanent and peaceful resting place for years to come.
