Implementing Services After Cremation

When someone passes away, there are two main choices. You can have cremation services in Las Vegas, NV or you can have a traditional burial. More people are choosing cremation today than ever before and perhaps your loved one had even specified that they want to be cremated. Cremation often happens soon after death, which is called direct cremation, with no services beforehand. In those cases, there can still be memorial services after the cremation takes place. Here are a few ideas for implementing those services: 

Let The Funeral Home Handle It 

One of the best things about working with a funeral home is that they will handle as much or as little as you’d like revolving around the cremation services. If you visit with them, make your decisions, and hand them over, they can implement what you want for your loved one. Many people choose to have cremation services at the funeral home because they get the support they need to make things as simple and easy as possible on their entire family. If you want to place plans in good hands, you can’t do better than the funeral home that did your loved one’s cremation. 

Delegate To Family 

If you’d like to have a memorial service in a family home or perhaps an ash scattering in a park, you don’t have to be the one in charge of everything. Your family is there to support you and they likely want to take some roles in the final services. Have one family member, for example, plan a reception after the services so your family can gather and grieve together further. Have another family member invite a guest speaker to talk about your loved one while another takes care of special music. Implementing the service can be easier with more people taking pieces and bringing it all together. 

Make It Casual 

Not every memorial service has to be elaborate or intricate in detail. Instead, you might opt for something more casual, which might suit your loved one better anyway. Invite your family to gather together in one location and simply share impromptu stories and memories with one another. Have some photo albums on hand so you can laugh at old photos and bring up fond memories of your loved one. You don’t have to make a big deal over details to honor someone special in your life.
