When you’re deciding on a final resting place for yourself or a loved one, choosing the right cemetery is important. It should be a place of natural beauty so people will want to visit. It should also be convenient for friends and family to pay their respects.
Just as important, though, is the maintenance of the location. If you’ve ever visited a cemetery that’s fallen into disrepair, you know the sad feeling of seeing overgrown, broken-down gravesites that look like they’ve been forgotten.
Endowment care is an important consideration. It helps ensure that the cemetery you choose for your final resting place or that of your loved one will look just as beautiful years down the road as it did on the day you chose it. Endowment care typically provides for lawn-mowing, regular landscaping and repairs.
And even when endowment care is covered, families can still clean and beautify their loved one’s gravesite. With the permission of the cemetery, you may even be allowed to plant flowers or shrubs to personalize and beautify the grave.
