Some people don’t want to have cremation services in Peoria, AZ for a loved one because they feel they would be too impersonal. However, most people understand that cremation services can be whatever you want them to be. They can, in fact, be more personal and more memorable than standard funerals. There are many things you can do to hold just the right kind of service for a loved one. Cremation services are meant to be moving so emotions are at the surface and are able to be released. Here are some moving touches that can hold significant value for you and your family:
The Right Music
People often connect to music in a deep way and playing special music can mean a lot during a cremation service. You can play music that has meaningful lyric, your loved one’s favorite songs, or songs from the era in which they were both to help everyone feel that connection to them.
If your loved one appreciated art, or your family does, you could have several paintings, pictures, or photos up and around at the cremation service. You could have a painting of your loved one done or display pieces they adored or had in their home. IT can bring the family together under something they enjoyed and decorate the room in a personal, special way.
Having a memory board, video, or book with pictures and other items is often a moving thing for everyone to look at. This can be the most special item at the service since people will see it and think of your loved one in a fond manner. You can have a book at the entrance for people to flip through, a memory board for them to look over as they walk past, or a video that plays with pictures and music during the service.
Black is still standard for funerals, but it’s not a must for any final service any longer. Especially with cremation, you can ask people to wear whatever you want. You can have them wear a sports team shirt or a certain color to go along with something your loved one appreciated. Having everyone in bright clothes or a certain type of clothing can help you honor your loved one in a unique way.
