Planning final services for a loved one in normal times can be hard enough, but if your loved one passed away recently and you had a cremation service in Dallas, TX done for them, you might want to honor them with a celebratory event. While it can be hard, dangerous, and even impossible to gather everyone you want right now, you can have a virtual service to honor the person and have a good time with family and friends. Here are some tips to help you out.
Schedule A Time And Date
Planning a celebration of life event online isn’t much different than an in-person event in that you are going to need a time and date. Decide how long you want the event to be and what day and time works best. You can set something, or you can talk to family and friends and see what works best for them. You can even have more of an open house, if you’d like, so people can come and go within a certain time period as they please.
Have An Agenda
You usually have some kind of goal or thing to do when you run a celebration of life in person and the same can be true for an online event. You could have it be a sharing event, where everyone in attendance shares a story about your loved one. You could share your screen and show pictures of your loved one. Others can share theirs as well. You can also play music, watch old videos together, talk sports, or do whatever else you think everyone would enjoy and would honor your loved one. You don’t want everyone to come to the event and just stare at one another, not knowing what to do.
While business meetings in the virtual arena might discourage snacks and other distractions, this is a celebration and what would that be without food, right? Tell family members and friends to grab their favorite take out or bae a dessert. IT’s something else everyone can talk about in the celebration—what they are eating. If you were having an in-person event, you’d better believe there would be food, so it only makes sense to let everyone snack at will.
