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 Stuart 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.
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.
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.
Cremation memorial services don’t follow a set structure due to the different approaches every person takes. Nonetheless, as a general rule they have a eulogy and a tribute to the life of the departed. Many of them also have a final disposition of the remains, be it scattering them in the air or letting them fly in sky lanterns.
