Of course you are going to feel sorrow when you face the loss of a loved one, but you also want to honor their memory, share experiences, and perhaps even laugh over some of the things they said or did. When your loved one has Burnsville, MN cremation, you can then organize a memorial service. These services can be somber like funerals or they can be more light-hearted. Whatever direction you go, you should most definitely personalize them to suit your loved one’s style and personality. Here are a few reasons why it is important to make those cremation services as personal as possible.
Express Your Own Feelings
The funeral home can take care of the details that are ordinarily included in a memorial service. They will accept flower deliveries, print bulletins, prepare the room, and do other such things. But when you pitch in and add personal touches, it’s a way to express your loved and affection for the person who passed away. Perhaps you want to spend time looking at old photos so you can put together a memory board or scrap book for people to look over when they attend the service. That’s your way of bringing the person’s life to light for everyone to enjoy and it’s a good way to help your own grieving process and to show your love.
To many people, funeral homes are scary places since they revolve around death and final services. You don’t want the guests you have invited to the memorial service to feel that way. When you add personal touches, like music your loved one enjoyed, pictures of their favorite vacations, and other fond memories, the room will feel like a warm, inviting environment and will be much more welcoming to those in attendance.
Bring More Meaning To The Service
Memorial services should be very meaningful as they revolve around the person who has passed away. Even if you arrange something on the traditional side, adding personal touches makes the service feel more relevant and much more meaningful. Perhaps make sure the celebrant knows your loved one had a phrase they always said or a team they were particularly fond of so it can be incorporated into the service in many ways. Whatever little touches you can use, do so and those around you will notice and appreciate them as well.
