As hard as it is to swallow, bad things happen to good people. And everyone will pass away at some point or another, whether it seems like a good time for them to go or not. When you are having cremation services in Plano, TX for a loved one, you are faced with a lot of decisions. You had to decide on cremation in the first place and then, you get to decide what kind of service to have for them after. You could have a normal memorial service that feels more somber and like a funeral, or you could have more of a celebration of life. Here are a few reasons you might want a celebration of life:
Reason 1: It’s Too Sad Otherwise
OF course losing your loved one is a sad event, whether you knew it was coming or not. And having a memorial service that dwells on their death can be too sad to handle. If you’d rather try to be uplifting to those in mourning, have a celebration of life to remember the good parts of your loved one’s existence and the memories you all share about them. Having something somber can be too overwhelming and sad for some people.
Reason 2: They Were So Positive
If your loved one was a positive person, it’s nice to celebrate them in that manner. They saw the glass half full in all cases and you want to do the same for them. It’s hard to lose them, but you see the positive light of things in that they had a good life and there are reasons to celebrate the milestones they hit and the memories they gave to all of you.
Reason 3: They Aren’t Suffering Anymore
IF your loved one had an illness that eventually took their life, of course you don’t want to dwell on those hard months or years you had by their side. That’s a hard lot for anyone to go through. Instead of dwelling on the illness and the toll it took on your loved one, remember them for the person they were before all that and celebrate the fact that they are no longer suffering. You’ll miss them, but you have great memories of their time with you.
