The Purpose Of A Service After Cremation

Funeral and memorial services are filled with ceremonies and rituals that can help honor loved ones after they pass on. Even if the person went through Henderson, NV cremation, having a service can help loved ones say goodbye and get closure over the situation. What are some of the rituals that are involved? That depends on what the family wants and what type of cremation occurs. But there’s a purpose to any type of service you might have for a loved one. Here are a few to keep in mind as you plan: 

 

To Say Goodbye 

Not everyone has the chance to say goodbye to a person before they pass on. If you were unable to do so, perhaps because the death was sudden or you just weren’t in the right place at the right time, you might need that chance once they are gone. A memorial service, a celebration of life, or even a funeral, is a good chance to say that final goodbye. 

 

Gain Closure 

You might understand that when someone dies, they are no longer there, but you might also be in denial about it a bit. When you attend a memorial service, there’s a finality to it. You see the urn and you know your loved one’s remains have been cremated. You beyond understand that they are gone and not coming back. That access to closure can be invaluable to the grieving process. 

 

Grieve With Support 

Support is highly important when you are grieving. Your co-workers and normal friends may not understand your situation, but your family members who lost the same person you did certainly do. When you attend a memorial service after cremation, you are around people who are going to support you through your grieving process. You are surrounded by people who knew the same person you did and who will miss them as well. While they have different emotions than you and had a different relationship with the person, they still get what you are going through more than others might. 

 

Share With Others 

Sometimes, when you are mourning, it’s good to just talk about the person you miss. The memorial service is the perfect time to share memories and talk about the good times you had with that person. You might even laugh a bit and smile over those times. Sharing with other people, and hearing other stories in return, can really help you keep their personality alive. 

 

If you are having Henderson, NV cremation done for a loved one who has recently passed away, many families continue on to have some kind of memorial service or another. These services have no timeframe on them as well as no set location or style. You can do whatever you feel is best to honor your loved one.
