Cremation has become an increasingly popular choice as an alternative to a traditional burial. There are several reasons that people feel that this is the more desirable option. From the cost savings, to the ease of the process and family preferences, it appeals to many people. A traditional burial can be quite expensive when you consider the cost of the casket, plot of land at the cemetery, the services that follow, and several other factors. Cremation can save families money, especially if they choose to have their ashes spread instead of a burial. It also can be a more straightforward process, saving the families from the stress of excessive planning or services. It also allows family members to hold onto and cherish their loved ones by preserving the ashes in a special keepsake. However, for those individuals who do choose cremation, the families will likely still want to do something to honor their life in a meaningful way. There are many ways in which families can still do a celebration of life, without a traditional funeral service.
Families often find comfort in lighting candles and gathering around it to sing songs as a form of celebration. This activity is best to do with the family and close friends for an intimate ceremony.
There’s something that feels spiritual and freeing about setting off lanterns into the nightsky. These lanterns are baskets that have bulbs in them, so when they head sky-bound, they’ll keep going as far into the distance as you can see. It is a unique memorial way to celebrate their loved ones.
Families can pay tributes to the individual in a solemn manner, and probably the family doesn’t like elaborated celebrations. That is an alternative to pay respect to the loved one that has left them. Our team can also help you to create meaningful tribute videos.
