When you think about a funeral, chances are there is a certain order of events that takes place. That is not always the case with a cremation service. When you work with a Marlboro, NJ Jewish funeral home, there will be certain things that will need to happen, but there are also options to personalize the cremation service to make it unique and special, just like the person who passed on. There are a number of things you can do, of course, but these suggestions will give you a few options to consider.
A Remembrance Table
Jewish cremation services don’t include flowers so there is going to be more room within the location for other items. You can turn the cremation service into something more personal by simply having a table filled with items that remind you of your loved one. That might mean pictures, things that they loved, tokens of their hobbies, and other such items.
You are also able to choose special music to help your family remember your loved one during a cremation service. That might mean having a certain singer from your synagogue perform one of their favorite hymns or it might mean a recording of their favorite song. It can bring a feeling of remembrance to those involved in the cremation service and make it feel unique and special at the same time.
Another great way to remember your loved one in a personal way is to have a video prepared for everyone to watch during the cremation service. The video can be very simple and just include pictures and music, or it can have video included as well. You can even tape others talking about your loved one and favorite memories if you have time to put something like that together.
Get Ideas from Friends
If you want more ideas for making your loved one’s cremation service unique, one possibility is to ask around. Talk to friends who have hosted cremation services in the past and ask what they have done. You might also want to talk to your close family members to see if they have suggestions as to how you can make the day as special and memorable as possible for all involved. At the end of the day, you want the cremation service to be something that will honor your loved one with the respect they deserve.
