You work hard to provide your family with a safe and comfortable place to live and the best opportunities life has to offer.
You started stashing money away early for your eventual retirement in order to truly enjoy your golden years your way, rather than pinching pennies.
Why should death be any different?
No one likes to think about dying, but it’s an inevitability we all must face. Since you know it will happen one day, it only makes sense to begin planning for your eternal resting place now, just as you once did when you scrimped and saved for that dream home.
Pre-planning your service and burial arrangements through Dignity Memorial adds up to a significant cost-savings, since you are locked into the price of the day you sign up. While funeral and related expenses continue to rise over the years, you will not see a single increase.
But planning ahead gives you something you can’t put a price tag on – peace of mind for both you and those you love most. And through Dignity’s newly unveiled Airlie Gardens, it means a chance to be with those loved ones for eternity.
Nestled near the entrance of the peaceful path that winds through Oleander Memorial Gardens, the new addition features beautiful and lasting spaces for individuals, spouses and families that opt for cremation but understand the importance of a designated monument.
From the striking and intricately carved marble family mausoleums - each surrounded by lush landscaping and overlooking a charming pond - to the lovely benches that also hold up to four urns and touching two-person tributes to soul mates and spouses, Airlie Gardens offers an aesthetically pleasing place for reflection that your friends and family can visit for decades to come.
Dignity Memorial certainly understands the importance of that final resting place, and Airlie Gardens is just one way the Dignity network – the largest group of funeral homes and cemetery properties in North America – is innovating in order to meet its customers’ needs.
Trained to listen with compassion and caring, local Dignity providers know that even those who choose cremation believe in keeping the tradition of a memorial alive.
See for yourself all the natural beauty, family togetherness and quiet gathering place Airlie Gardens has to offer by visiting Oleander Memorial Gardens, 306 Bradley Drive, or calling Dignity at (910) 799-1686.
Patrick Kelly is Family Service Manager for Dignity Memorial®, which cares for more than 300,000 families each year through its network of more than 2,000 providers throughout North America.
