When a loved one passes away, you work with Dallas funeral homes to organize final services. You choose cremation or a traditional burial and then, you organize the services you want in place for that person. Many people go with somber, traditional services, but there are also celebration of life options today. These choices allow you to celebrate a life well-lived and go over happy memories of the person who passed on. They also give you something to talk about later after everything is complete. Here are a few things to talk about regarding celebrations of life.
The People In Attendance
Once the final services are behind you, you might want to review who was at the celebration of life. IF you did any video recording, that makes it easier to remember. You might have had a smaller crowd with a more intimate gathering, which also makes it easy to remember who was there. You could even have a guest book available, if you want. Remembering who was at the celebration of lifer can help you remind yourself the kind of support system you have in place for yourself.
The Outfits Worn
For funerals and somber memorials, people usually wear darker colors or their Sunday best. But for celebrations of life, you might request that they wear something else or, at the very least, colors are brighter and less formal. You might think about who wore what and have a good time over the way your loved one was celebrated through clothing. Perhaps people wore that person’s favorite color or maybe they wore sports shirts to celebrate their love of a certain sport. Thinking about the clothing worn is another way to look back on the service and appreciate what you pulled together.
The Memories Shared
The biggest thing you will want to think about in regard to the celebration of life is the memories that other people shared. Again, it’s nice to video some of the service so you can remember what people said later on. There might be memories out there that are shared that you’ve never heard before and it can be fun to review them later. Even if you don’t have a video, you will likely be able to recall some of the laughs you had, smiles you gave, and memories you shared yourself.
Celebrations of life are a nice way to honor someone’s life after they get final services with Dallas funeral homes. It can help you to remember how happy they were in their lifetime and how much support you have around you.
