Thankfully, you don’t have to take a trip to one of the funeral homes in Dallas, TX very often to honor someone who has passed away. But because that is usually the case, you may not know how to act or what to say in order to get through one of those services. Funeral services are all standard and those might make sense to you. You would act in a somber manner and dress conservatively. If you’ve been to one at any time, you remember basically what it was like. However, more people are going with cremation followed by a celebration of life. For those types of events, there could be a different need for every one of them. Here are a few things to consider as you approach the event:
Wearing The Proper Attire Differs
Going to a funeral or memorial service means wearing something conservative and nice. Going to a celebration of life can mean different things each time. If the family is having a beach party, you might wear a cover up or a Hawaiian shirt. If they’re having a celebration at a sporting event, you might wear something with a team logo on it. Every event is different, depending on what the family wants. You’ll have to judge based on the type of event and any instructions the family might have provided.
Leave Your Phone Behind
Even though the celebration is much less formal than a funeral or memorial service, you still don’t want to interrupt the time you are there to honor the person who passed on. Either leave your phone behind or turn it off or, at the very least, to silent. The festivities are a lot more light0-hearted, but you’re still there to pay your respects and it’s best not to make your phone a part of that.
Fit Into The Celebration
The family members have set up the celebration of life in this manner, whatever that might be, for a reason. Try to do your best to participate, fit in, and enjoy remembering the person who passed on in whatever way the family has set up. If you want to pay your respects in another way, you can do that on your on at another time. This day is set up as the family wanted to celebrate a life well-lived.
