When you are planning cremation services in Plano, TX, you might already know you have a variety of options available to you. Many people choose cremation because of those options. They know they don’t have to put a timeline on their services because once the cremation is complete, the services afterwards can happen at any time. Plus, there are plenty of service options available.
If a loved one has passed on, you can have a memorial service for them after their cremation that feels much like a funeral service. It can contain many of the same traditions and can feel somber. But that’s not always the right answer for every family. There are also options for services that are more celebratory in nature.
It might sound strange to ‘celebrate’ after a person has passed away, but you certainly aren’t celebrating their passing, but rather the good life they lived. Think back on the things your loved one accomplished. They may have had a wonderful family, a vivid career, a volunteering background, and so much more going on in their lifetime. That’s a life well-lived and it’s one worth celebrating.
Perhaps your loved one wasn’t one who wanted a big fuss over them or maybe they even said to someone at some point that they didn’t want people crying over them when they were gone. Having a celebration of life doesn’t mean there won’t be tears, but there will also be laughter, smiles, and shared memories.
Celebrations of life can take many forms. You can have a service in a funeral home where you can customize things in any way you’d like. Some families like to allow everyone a chance to speak and share memories while others just want people to gather and talk with one another. You could also do something like have a picnic in a park, visit a theme park your loved one adored, go to their favorite classic film, or just have a family dinner with all of their favorites. There’s no right or wrong way to celebrate a life. It all depends on their personality and your family’s preferences and needs.
