There’s no such thing as a traditional funeral or cremation services in Deland, FL that are identical to one another. Even if you do something for a loved one that is exactly like what someone else has done for their loved one, the services are still different because of the person they honor. However, you can customize your cremation service for a loved one in any way you’d like to make it as unique and customized to their personality as you want. Here are some of the most common customized requests for cremation services that you might want to consider as you plan for a loved one’s final services:
When you choose to go with cremation services, the funeral home will give you a package to consider that includes everything you need. The cremation itself is covered, of course, as well as a simple container for your loved one’s remains. Many families, however, wish to have an urn that is more suited to their loved one in style and form. You can get an urn in any material, color, and style and you can even have it engraved. If you plan to keep the urn in your home, it’s nice to have something that looks nice and will honor your loved one for many years. If you aren’t sure what you want, the funeral home can show you options, though you’re welcome to purchase an urn from any outlet.
The Overall Service
While traditional funerals operate in a certain manner, that’s not the case for cremation services. You can do pretty much anything you want for your loved one. That means the service style can feel like a funeral or more of a celebration of life. It can be in a funeral home or in a park. It can be formal or casual. Whatever you want, you can have and the service is a huge way to customize the overall experience for your family and your love done.
The Final Resting Place
Where you plan to lay your family member to rest is a way to customize the experience as well. With traditional burials, the cemeteries in the area are the only option. With cremation, your options are endless. You can still choose to bury the urn in a small cemetery plot or you can keep the ashes at home in a place of honor. You can scatter the ashes, have them distributed in pieces into jewelry, or any number of other things. What you choose will make the cremation services all that much more unique for your loved one.
