Cremation Service Memorial Details

One of the reasons you might have decided to go with a Dallas cremation for a loved one is so that you have more options for your loved one’s memorial services. It’s nice to know you can customize anything you want and create something truly unique and special. Here are some of the things to consider as you get into the details of planning something memorable.

Consider A Celebration Of Life

While memorial services can be somber and feel more like a funeral service, they can also be more like a celebration of life. If you feel like your loved one would appreciate a light-hearted service that goes over the good times they had in their life instead of something sad that talked about their death, a life celebration can be a good service style to consider. There are endless things you can do with this kind of service and the professionals can help you to figure out what direction you want to take.

Giving Memorial Gifts

Many people will bring a gift to a memorial service to let the family know they are there to support them and are thinking about them. But it’s not as common for the family of the deceased to give gifts to guests who come to the memorial service. IT can be a nice touch, though, and something that can make the service stand out. You can give everyone a baseball card-like picture of your loved one with details about them on the back as a keepsake. You could hand out books they collected and loved for everyone to have something of theirs. There are plenty of other options to consider.

Final Resting Place Choices

As the memorial service, there is no timeline for figuring out what you want to do for a final resting place. However, you will want to start thinking about that option as you plan the memorial service. Sometimes, the service might revolve around the resting place. Or, at the very least, you might want to let people know what you are planning when they attend the service. Some services might include an ash scattering so you will want to plan that alongside the life celebration you have in mind.

Donation Options

Many families want people to donate to a certain charity instead of sending flowers or other things to the funeral home in their honor. You will want to think about something that yourDallas cremation loved one would appreciate and get the word out so everyone knows what your family wants. If your loved one adored animals, donating to a local animal rescue league can be nice. IF they volunteered at a soup kitchen, have people take food items there to make up for your loved one’s absence at their normal shift. The donations can mean a lot to your family and those who participate in honoring your loved ones in that manner.

Dallas cremation professionals at Hughes Family Tribute Center can give you more options and suggestions on any part of the cremation service you need help with, including a life celebration if you go that direction.
