Reducing grief of losing loved ones

AND I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” — Rev. 21:3-4.

We thank God for His salvation and His promise that those who believe in Jesus Christ will reign with Him eternally. In Christ, we have victory over death. Death has lost its sting. Death is defeated. Death is no more the final answer but is an open door to be with our Creator forever.

On this note, we are comforted that the deceased in Christ has gone into glory. But on the other hand, we also understand that the departure of a loved one has caused the bereaved family great grief and pain.

The dignified manner in which the remains of loved ones are treasured in the peaceful Garden of Remembrance columbarium helps to reduce the grief of losing them.

Hence, many bereaved families choose to treasure fond memories of their loved ones by buying niches and/or buying these ash-free products of remembrance at the award-winning, beautiful and serene Garden of Remembrance at 920 Old Choa Chu Kang Road:

■ Bible Book of Remembrance: Customised Granite Bible Book engraved with name for remembrance. Design includes cross, golden verse and family tree.
■ Pew of Remembrance: Metal plaque etched with name for remembrance on church pew.
■ Tree of Remembrance: Patron chooses to plant choice trees for remembrance.
■ Wall of Remembrance: Granite plaque on wall.
