When you decide cremation services in Daytona Beach, FL are what you want to do for a loved one who has passed away, that’s a lovely, honorable choice. One of the neat things about this option is that you can have whatever kind of memorial service you want after the cremation is complete. If you’d like to keep things simple and straightforward, perhaps one of these ideas would work well for you.
An In-Home Gathering
You don’t have to have a memorial service at a funeral home, in a church, within a community center, or in other more public locations. If you want to do something small and intimate, you can simply gather your family and a few close friends in a family home and have a meal together. You can have a time of reflection where you share memories with one another and keep the memorial service sweet and simple.
A Short Ash Scattering
With traditional burial, people normally have a funeral service first, and then there is a burial service. But families can skip the funeral and just have a graveside service. Likewise, you don’t have to have a memorial service after cremation. You can skip right to the ash scattering portion of the service and do something simple there. Choose a location, say some things about your loved one, and scatter your loved one as a small group.
An Online Memorial
Right now, it can be hard to gather your entire family and friend group for any reason, even for a memorial service. But you can safely gather as many people as you want online. Have an online meeting where you invite anyone and everyone who wants to attend. People can take turns sharing memories of your loved one. You can listen to the music they enjoyed together, view pictures, and other such things. Keeping it simple online can still be very special.
Allow Individual Services
Instead of having one big memorial service, you could tell your family members that you would prefer if everyone did their own thing in terms of services. Your family could have an ash scattering while another family sits around and shares memories. One family might like to celebrate the person’s life while another takes a walk through a park they enjoyed to remember them. Everyone can do something that honors that person in their own way without having anyone larger service.
