Why is a Permanent Memorial for a Veteran Important?

At Farenga Funeral Home, we can’t think of a higher privilege than laying a veteran to rest, and we’re honored to do our part in commemorating the lives of our servicemen and women. Veteran’s Day is an opportunity to think about and be grateful for all of the heroes who made our freedom their priority. It’s not every day we come across people as brave and courageous as these men and women who are willing to sacrifice it all for us.

PermanentVeteranMemorial-Nov2020As Veteran’s Day approaches, we want those in Queens and Astoria  to know how  passionate we are when a veteran’s family comes to us – and how important it is for the family to have a permanent memorial to visit in years to come. This gives family members and friends a place to connect and pay their respects.

Having a permanent memorial to return to and visit your veteran loved one is also a crucial step in the grieving process. Once the funeral is over, the friends and family leave, and life gets quiet again, a permanent memorial gives you a specific place to begin healing. When you feel like connecting with your loved one, a permanent memorial gives you a quiet, peaceful place to do so.

At Farenga Funeral Home, we have several meaningful memorialization options available with cremation or burial. We can arrange for you to scatter a portion of the cremated remains while keeping a portion to be placed in an urn or keepsake jewelry. Or you can choose to bury some or all of the cremated remains somewhere special outdoors or in a mausoleum.

Another option for your veteran loved one is a columbarium niche. This is a wall specifically designed to hold urns of all different shapes, styles, and sizes. Some spaces even allow for personal items, so you can add military effects or save the space for multiple urns.

Perhaps you want to showcase your loved one’s s personal belongings from their time in the military. Our staff can help create a unique service by highlighting the veteran’s awards and accomplishments on a memory table with a display of photos, medals, and their uniform.

These are just a few of the options you have when you choose our team of experts. Our veterans keep our nation free, and you can celebrate their life and accomplishments for generations to come when you select a permanent memorial. Let us introduce to you all of our memorialization options. You can always contact us with any questions.
