Life celebrations are a nice way to honor someone’s life well lived after they have Dallas cremation services. It’s a form of memorial service that allows you to celebrate their life instead of mourn the sadness of their death. You will still mourn, but the purpose of the service is to celebrate what a good life they had. In order to go through that type of service, you might want to choose a container for their remains that is more celebratory in appearance. Here are some things to consider for that option.
A Brightly Colored Urn
Urns can be anything you want them to be and they are always very nice. However, at a life celebration, you might want to have something nice and bright for guests to see and enjoy. If your loved one liked the color red, get a bright red urn to showcase that part of their personality. If they adored animals, get an urn that has the picture of their favorite animal on it. There are lots of bright colors you can get in urn materials and that can highlight the happiness you are trying to convey at the celebration of life.
There are just as many options of cookie jars as there are urns. If your loved one liked a certain character, like Mickey Mouse, you can find a cookie jar that features that character. You can place their remains inside the cookie jar and use it as their container. It can be a celebratory item to have at the life celebration for people to focus on and remember that special thing that your loved one adored.
If your loved one was an avid fisherman, it just makes sense to keep them in the tackle box they used all those years. Remove the bait and save those for family, but use the tackle box as a resting place as you know your loved one would appreciate.
A Decorative Simple Container
The cremation provider will give you a simple container for your loved one’s remains with any package you get with them, but you can upgrade to a decorative simple container, if you want. The simple containers are little more than a cardboard box, but you could get a box with an angel on it, a cross, or something else. You can also have family members write messages on the box to make it that much more special.
Their Favorite Book
If your loved one was a bookworm, you might feel they would be the most comfortable inside their favorite book. You can have a book hollowed out and their ashes placed inside. Display that book at their life celebration and it can showcase that part of their life and something they loved at the same time.
Working on Dallas cremation services when you want to have a celebration of life can take some thought to make things special. Even the container you use for their service can be light-hearted and celebratory in nature, if you so choose.
