Healing Once Cremation Services Are Complete

After cremation services in Las Vegas, NV are over, it can be hard to move to the next stage of your grief. When you were planning the services, you had something ahead of you to help you honor your loved one. Once the services are behind you, you have to find other ways to heal outside of their memorial. Promote the healing process with some of these options once the cremation service is over. 

The Receiving Line 

Right after the cremation service takes place, many families participate in receiving lines. There doesn’t have to be a formal funeral or memorial service to have a receiving line. It’s nice to speak with the people who attended the service so they can offer their condolences. Nothing anyone says or does will cheer you up, necessarily, but having their support can help you understand there are still many people in your life who care about you. 

The Reception 

After a memorial service, you might want to have a reception for family and friends. Whether you have a somber event or a celebration of life, it’s nice to have everyone get together afterward to visit and gather. You can share stories about your loved one, happy memories, and even a good cry with family members. It’s not every day your whole family is in one place so it’s a good opportunity to gather for a longer period of time. 

An Ash Scattering Service 

If you have a cremation service in the form of a memorial, you can also have an ash scattering service somewhere else, either right away or at a later date. Many families reserve this ceremony for those closest to the person who died instead of the general public or distant friends. Gather the close family members together and honor your loved one by laying them to rest wherever you (or they) have chosen. 

Group Chats 

Not everyone will want to get up in front of a crowd and share a memory at a memorial service, but lots of people have memories and it can help them, and you, to share them. Start a social media group or text chain with the sole purpose of sharing more about your loved one. You might hear stories you’ve never heard before that will put a smile on your face and help you heal while remembering them fondly as the days and weeks to come pass by.
