Questions You May Have About Cremation Services
Whether you have attended cremation services in Las Vegas, NV in the past or not, there may come a time when you have to organize cremation services for a loved one. If that is new to you, even if you are completely comfortable with the idea of cremation, you may still have questions. Funeral directors are at your disposal. They are willing to answer questions by phone, over email, and in person whenever you have them. Here are some of the things you might ask when you are organizing a cremation service for a loved one:
What Will The Funeral Director Do?
You might be used to the funeral director organizing funerals and they have a lot of tasks in that sort of event. But what about in a cremation service? What do they do there? Funeral directors will still have their hands on this type of service. First, they will ensure that your loved one is transported from the place of their death to the funeral home’s facilities. Then, they will put them in proper hands for good care until the cremation takes place. They will work with identification, paperwork, and other things that have to happen before cremation. If you decide to have a memorial service, the funeral director can also help implement and organize that event for you.
What Should People Wear To The Memorial?
That’s something that the funeral home can help you decide, but the ultimate decision is completely up to you. At traditional funerals, people generally wear darker colors and more formal attire. But at memorial services, the clothing can vary based on what you want. Perhaps your loved one adored purple and you’d rather guests wear that color, even if all they have is a t-shirt, in order to pay tribute to your loved one. You can go with casual attire for a celebration of life, or something traditional and more business-like for a memorial that feels more like a funeral. Ultimately, you get to decide.
Should Kids Be Allowed At The Service?
Again, that depends on the service style and what you want. If there are children who are going to miss the person who passed away, it can be nice for them to attend so they can get closure, say goodbye, and find a way to move on as well. If you have children in your friend circle who are very young and would be disruptive to others, it might be best for them to stay home.
