The gravesite is a physical reminder of the person you lost. It can offer a great deal of comfort to family and friends left behind. You can visit it and spend some time by it to find some solace. At Tindall Funeral Home, we encourage people to personalize the gravesite as that can make it stand apart from other graves in the cemetery. Here’s a look at how you can do it:

1. Plant Flowers

Plant flowers by the gravesite to add some life and beauty to the spot. They can be a great way to memorialize a loved one and will remind you of them when they bloom. Choose the deceased individual’s favorite flower or a plant that represents their personality. You can choose a plant based on the language of flowers as well.

2. Add Photographs

You can place photographs of the deceased individual at the gravesite as well. Choose pictures that represent them well and bring back fond memories. For example, don’t pick a professional and dull picture they used on resumes. Choose an image of them laughing with family members or smiling genuinely into the camera.

3. Place Flags on the Gravesite

Place flags on the gravesite, especially if the deceased individual was a veteran or a law enforcement officer. Flags are a great way to honor a loved one and will gain a measure of respect from everyone that visits the cemetery.

4. Handwritten Notes

Handwritten notes from friends and family can also add a personal touch to a gravesite. You can express your feelings in these letters and even ask other family members to contribute their thoughts.

Contact us at Tindall Funeral Home through our online form or call (315) 468-5521 if you want to know about our services and need advice.
