Just because you’re having a loved one cremated rather than buried doesn’t mean you can’t have a service for them. You are welcome to plan a traditional funeral service before your loved one’s cremation services in Beaver Falls, PA; however, you also have the option of holding a memorial service for your loved one after cremation services are completed. This could very well be the best option for you and your family.
Some families rush to hold funeral services for their loved ones before cremation services are performed. Here are some advantages to holding a memorial service after your loved one’s cremation services have been completed.
Trying to plan your loved one’s cremation and funeral service at the same time can be difficult. You may not be able to devote enough time to one or the other. You’ll have more time to make important cremation decisions if you postpone your loved one’s memorial service until after they’ve been cremated. When you postpone your loved one’s memorial service, you will feel better about your decisions.
For many families, planning funeral services for loved ones can feel like a whirlwind. They are unable to keep up with everything that is happening during the planning process. When planning a memorial service for a loved one, you won’t feel as rushed. You’ll be able to take a deep breath and go at your own pace, rather than the pace dictated by your loved one’s upcoming cremation.
When families plan funeral services for their loved ones before cremation services, they don’t have as much time to consider the best day and time for everyone in their family. As a result, many people are unable to attend funeral services for loved ones, despite their desire. In many cases, they are unable to travel long distances in time to attend funeral services. Memorial services give families a lot more leeway. They can take their time and select the best date and time for everyone, ensuring that very few people miss their loved one’s memorial service.
If you wish, you can personalize your loved one’s funeral services; but it won’t be easy when you have a million and one other things on your plate. You’ll miss out on the chance to put your stamp on your loved one’s services. This is not an issue if you hold a memorial service after your loved one has been cremated. Because you’ll have at least a week, if not more, to prepare, you can personalize every last detail to ensure your loved one receives a proper sendoff.
