Many people choose cremation services in Kaysville, UT instead of a traditional burial because of the advantages of doing so. One thing people do worry about is whether the service will feel personal. Since there is nobody to view during a cremation, it can cause family members to feel disconnected from the deceased. There are plenty of ways to make a cremation service seem more personal. You can work with your family and friends to come up with some creative ways to personalize the service or consider some of these options.
Photos are one of the best ways to make a cremation service personal. You can print out the photos and add them to a poster board to display around the funeral home during the cremation. You can also print out larger photos and frame them. If you want to be able to display a lot of photos at the service, you may want to bring photo albums with some of your favorite photos. You can also ask family members and friends to bring their favorite photos of the deceased or their photos albums to display at the service as well.
A memory table can be a good option during the cremation or once the cremation is complete and you are having a ceremony for the deceased. The table can be used with an urn containing the ashes and is used to display the deceased’s most prize possessions or things that remind the family of their loved one. The table can include photos, special items or jewelry, clothing, and other personal items that meant something special to the deceased. You can also add a notebook where family members can write quick notes about the deceased.
It’s possible to give a eulogy even when a person is cremated. The family members and friends can stand up and say something special about the deceased during the cremation or after while the ashes are put on display for a memorial service. When everyone shares their story and tells stories about the deceased, it reminds them of their life and allows the family to focus on the life the deceased lived instead of their death. You can invite as many people as you choose to give a eulogy during the cremation or memorial service.
