• The Benefits of Choosing a Mausoleum from Skylawn Memorial Park

    Dunorlan Park

    A mausoleum is an above-ground entombment option for your loved one. Mausoleums are built to contain one or more caskets in an enclosed structure. They are the ideal choice for those who do not wish to be buried below the ground or those who wish to create a comfortable visiting environment for friends and family. Cremated remains may also be housed within a mausoleum. Skylawn Memorial Park offers a number of mausoleum options to suit your needs and your budget.

    A private mausoleum is a structure built solely for the use of one or more of your family members. These mausoleums are uniquely designed with your input to create the lasting memorial that suits your family’s wishes. Skylawn Memorial Park also offers comfortable, dignified, and climate-controlled indoor mausoleums for caskets or cremated remains as well. Mausoleums have been used throughout history to memorialize a loved one’s passing.

  • Should Your Child Attend a Funeral?

    A funeral service provides a supportive place to remember the life of a loved one and share your grief with family and friends. Many families wonder whether children—especially young children—should attend a funeral or memorial service.

    This video explains that children should be allowed to attend the funeral of a loved one. However, it’s important to talk with your child ahead of time to prepare him for the service. 

    If it is appropriate, encourage your child to take part in the service and find ways to remember his lost loved one, such as reading a poem or drawing a picture. At Skylawn Memorial Park, we encourage families to create their own unique ways of celebrating the life of a lost loved one.
