Your loved one is special and unique and you want to remember them as such. Their cremation service in Helmetta, NJ shouldn’t be like every other cremation service in the area. You have certain rituals you want to follow, but even with that, you can create some personal elements that make the cremation service special and memorable. These little touches don’t have to be complicated or expensive to mean a lot. You can do most of it yourself and you can enlist the help of a cremation service provider as well to get ideas and options. Here are a few possibilities to personalize an upcoming cremation service.
Make Guest Books Special
There are often guest books at funeral services so people can sign in and leave messages for the loved ones of the person who passed on. That book is something they can look through later to remember who all came to honor their loved one. There is no reason why the guest book has to be a simple, blank book. You can add things to it in order to fill up the blank pages and give those signing in something to see. You might want to put in favorite scriptures or quotes that will remind people of your loved one. You could even place pictures of the one who passed away to give it a unique touch.
Some people may feel strange about cremation services because there is no body involved. A great way to draw your loved one into the service is to have a photo display of the individual doing some of the things they loved best. Put a montage board together with wedding photos, pictures of them with their children, and photos of them doing other things they loved. You can also put a photo montage together with music to have running in the background of the gathering. Guests can even bring pictures and tributes to add to the display.
Ask for Charitable Gifts
Your loved one made a huge difference in your life and the lives of many others. Now that they are gone, there’s no reason why that legacy can’t continue. Jewish funerals don’t recommend flowers as gifts, but charitable gifts are a great idea. Use the cremation service as a chance to bolster your loved one’s favorite charity. Personalize the service by asking people to donate to that charity instead of bringing other gifts. Your loved one will leave their mark in a positive way.
