Do you know what to do with the cremated remains of your loved ones? Darrell Hill, founder and CEO of EternityGardens.com, was inspired to start this website thanks to his own experience with his parents.

While his parents are both currently still alive, his mother informed him a few years ago that she and Dad planned to be cremated. When Darrell asked her what she wanted done with their remains, she said, “Oh, just scatter me someplace pretty.”

Realizing that wasn’t much guidance, he began researching the cemetery and cremation businesses. After months of due diligence, Darrell launched an online platform to help cemeteries connect with those individuals and families that have cremated remains at home.

EternityGardens.com is designed to offer guidance to those looking for a permanent final resting place for cremated remains. People can search in categories by state, eco-friendly options, scattering services, veterans, pets, religions, and more.
