What is a cremation memorial service?
Whether a loved one has died and chosen to be cremated, or you are planning to have a cremation after death, you will want to know how to create an appropriate cremation memorial service in Jensen Beach.
A cremation memorial service is a way to commemorate a loved one when they have chosen to be cremated. It can take place before or after the cremation.
Having the memorial service before cremation makes for a more traditional approach. You can also have an open-casket service for those who wish to say goodbye to the body.
Arranging the service after cremation will give you and your loved ones more time to plan for a meaningful service and gather those who live far away and can’t travel immediately.
Cremation opens up many meaningful ways to honor your loved one. For example, the remains can be retained in a beautiful personalized urn, buried in the ground, enclosed in a columbarium niche or mausoleum, or scattered in a place that has special meaning.
Unlike traditional funeral services, cremation memorial services allow for more creative ways of remembrance. You could hold the ceremony in a church or funeral home, in a place significant to the deceased, even at a body of water where the ashes can be scattered.
Some of the ways you can remember or honor a late person are:
• A traditional ceremony in a church or funeral home
• An ash-scattering ceremony at sea or another body of water
• A photo-slide show
• Releasing balloons or sky lanterns into the air with the ashes
• At a place that was special for the deceased
