What is a cremation memorial service?
Maybe a loved one has recently died and said that he or she wanted to be cremated. Or perhaps you’re pre-planning your funeral arrangements and are interested in cremation. Either way, you’re probably wondering what exactly a cremation memorial service in Palm City is.
A cremation memorial service is a way to commemorate a loved one when their body has been or will be cremated. You can hold it before or after the cremation.
When you choose to hold the memorial service before cremation, you will have a more traditional ceremony and allow people to say goodbye with an open casket service.
When you hold it after cremation, you have more time to plan, gather those who can’t travel immediately after a person’s passing and create a very meaningful ceremony.
It’s important to know that there is no such thing as a “typical” cremation. Memorialization is a meaningful way to commemorate and reflect the life that has been lived.
Unlike traditional funeral services, cremation memorial services allow for more creative ways of remembrance. It allows for family and friends to share memories and also display photos and personal mementos. The urn can be present and the service can be religious, secular, or contemporary.
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
