Grief is a process and the hardest part is, there’s no predicting it. What happens with your grief may be completely different than what happens for someone else going through something similar. But the one thing that remains true throughout the process is that an Avondale, AZ cremation service can aid you in your grieving. Here are a few reasons why cremation services are a good thing for grief.  

Enable The Goodbye

When you lose a loved one, you may rationally know that you need to say goodbye to them and attempt to move on with your life. But how can you really do that? Having a cremation service in the form of a memorial, an ash scattering, or something else can give you a distinct time and place to say your final goodbyes. It’s often the reason that memorial services are filled with tears. It’s hard to say goodbye and move on, but that service is the perfect opportunity to do so.  

Gain Closure 

You can’t move on from your grief even a little bit until you have closure over the death of your loved one. The cremation service can give you that. Until that service, it may just feel like your loved one has fallen out of touch with you. Once you have that cremation service, things feel more final and you know the loss is permanent. As awful as that feels, it also gives you a sense of closure that eventually enables you to move on.  

Loving Support

Grieving on your own is never recommended. There will be times when you want to be alone and that’s okay. But you won’t want to make that the norm. It’s good to surround yourself with people who love you and others who knew your loved one as well. The cremation service is an opportunity for you to get the loving support you so need during this difficult time. You might be surprised by the people who rally around you to get you through your grieving process.  

Establish The New Normal

At first, after someone passes on, it might feel like nothing will ever be the same again and that’s really true. But the cremation service can help you get a sense of a new normal. What will things be like now that that person is gone? You will have to make changes in your life and possibly set things up in a new way and the cremation service will help you start that process. 

If you could avoid final services for the people you love, you certainly would. You’d rather they not go anywhere. But death is a part of life and there’s no way around cremation in Avondale, AZ at times. The next time you have to attend a cremation service for a loved one, look at it in a positive light. It’s a good thing for your grieving process. When you are ready to set things up, contact Thompson Funeral Chapel at (623) 932-1780 or stop by 926 S Litchfield Rd, Goodyear, AZ 85338.
