If you are arranging final services for a loved one and they haven’t left any plans behind, the first thing you have to decide is whether you should give them a traditional service or cremation services in Deland, FL. While traditional funerals are often similar because of the ceremony and traditions involved, cremation services are thought of as more unique. If there’s one thing you can guarantee your loved one, it’s that their cremation service will be unique and special. Why is that? Because all cremation services are unique. Here are a few ways in which you can ensure that’s the case:
First, Your Loved One Is Unique
In this way, funerals and cremation services are always unique, even if you do the exact same thing someone else has done in the past. You are doing those things for your loved one, which makes them unique right off the bat. Your loved one was a special person and there was no one else like them. When you honor them, even if you choose some of the same methods others have used, it’s unique.
Second, The Services Chosen
When you go with cremation services, the cremation process itself is the same for everyone. However, the services you choose to go around the cremation can be completely unique and different, if you want. Some people have a memorial service right away that feels like a funeral. Others decide to have a memorial service that is more of a celebration of life. There are also smaller, more intimate choices in an ash scattering ceremony. What you do is completely up to what your family wants.
Third, The Details Included
While most of the service styles have been done before, you can do things within them that are completely different and unique. Include a picture video of your loved one. Have someone sing their favorite song. Pass out some of their book collection at the end. And do other things to highlight their personality specifically.
Fourth, The Resting Place
You could very well choose a resting place that no one else has or will ever have. If you keep your loved one’s remains in an urn in your house, for example, that’s completely unique. If you scatter them in your yard and then plant a tree over them, that’s also unique. You could also scatter their ashes in one or many places.
