It protects the casket from the weight of the earth and heavy maintenance equipment that will pass over the grave. It also helps resist water and preserves the beauty of the cemetery or memorial park by preventing the ground from settling.
It is becoming a growing trend for families to personalize their loved one during the funeral process. The family may choose to bring photos, purchase cap panels and end corner life symbols.
