Cancer is a horrendous disease and it is popping up in more and more people without explanation. If a family member you adore got cancer and fought it valiantly, but lost the battle, you will contact Dallas, TX funeral homes to get help with their final services. While their death is very sad and you are likely emotional, you may also want to think about the life they lived instead of dwelling on their death and how they passed on. When you think about it, that’s likely how they would want to be remembered, anyway.
As you consider your options, it’s nice to remember that your loved one is no longer in pain. Cancer probably brought a lot of discomfort to their life, especially towards the end. Now that they are gone from this world, they are not feeling this pain any longer. While you’re never going to be glad that they’re gone, knowing that they are no longer suffering can be a comfort to you. Rather than have a funeral or even a memorial service that is as sad as the disease, you may want to celebrate their lack of pain and the life they lived before the disease took hold of their body.
In order to celebrate life, look back to before the cancer diagnosis took place and gather pictures of your loved one on vacation, in their everyday life, and with family members. That can help you remember how much they brought to you and to others around you. They lived a good life, though it was much too short, in your opinion. Remember the good times you had together and highlight those memories instead of the sadness.
You might feel better about celebrating the good times in your loved one’s life over grieving the sadness surrounding their death. It could very well be the way your loved one would want to be remembered and it can give your family a sense of hope and peace at the same time.
They key is finding just the right way to celebrate your loved one’s life. There are no right or wrong ways, really. You simply have to figure out what’s best for your family. If you have ideas, that’s great. If you’re not sure where to start, you can get professional help to aid you along the way.
