Designing Your Memorial
There are few decisions in life as personal as deciding where you wish to be permanently memorialized. After all, it is a decision that extends into the lifetimes of your children and grandchildren – where do you wish them to go to honor your memory and share their emotions?
The experienced staff of Elias, Kallal & Schaaf Funeral Home can help you arrive at the perfect decision for you, and your family. We would be honored to guide you through the cemetery grounds, explore your perspectives, and make suggestions. Ultimately, the decision is in your hands; but our expertise can certainly guide you.
Sometimes one family member wants to be buried and another wishes to be cremated, yet they want to be together. Because we know this to be a common wish, Elias, Kallal & Schaaf Funeral Home makes it simple for families. Our staff will help you arrange for a common burial of both loved ones in the same plot. Call Elias, Kallal & Schaaf Funeral Home at (618) 377-4000, or send us an email inquiry today to discuss your options.
Deciding on the type of memorial property is a very personal decision. Elias, Kallal & Schaaf Funeral Home provides a setting where meditation, reflection, remembrance, and healing can take place.
Mausoleums allow for above ground entombment in either community buildings or specially designed family structures. At one time the advantages of mausoleum entombment were available only to royalty, the famed or the very wealthy. Well-known mausoleums include the Taj Mahal, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Egyptian Pyramids. Mausoleum property is now affordable to most everyone.
The mausoleum at Elias, Kallal & Schaaf Funeral Home is a community mausoleum with crypt spaces and cremation niche sections. Private family mausoleum property is also available. These mausoleums are individually designed, custom-built and personalized to reflect the traditions and values of the individual.
Cremation niches, including those with glass front panels, are available in our mausoleum, and in our outdoor cremation Water Garden. We also provide bench, tree, and statue memorial interment of cremated remains.
