Modern Ways To Memorialize A Loved One
Mourning the loss of your friends or family is a delicate situation to be in. Although expressing your sorrow and paying your respects is important, many people find it essential to celebrate the person’s life and memory as well. This can also help with accepting the situation in a better way. We at Charles J. O’Shea Funeral Home have some ideas to help your memorialize your dear ones:
Most families are keen on placing memorabilia for their loved ones that have passed. This can include anything close to the person that pays a tribute to their life. It can be a musical instrument, their favorite music record, or their personal journal. Moreover, you can also create memorabilia with the remains of the ashes, instead of storing them in an urn. Jewelry such as pendants and bracelets can be made.
Make A Memory Wall
You can make a montage by involving all the people close to the decedent as well. This will make the entire process of celebrating the person’s life a collaborative effort. You can do this either by making a video or, by arranging a memory wall at the funeral. You could ask around for digital or physical pictures of the person and make a collage. People can also pen down their thoughts and memories with it.
Plant A Tree
People also plant flowers in the memory of their loved ones. You can plant the descendant’s favorite flower or tree in your backyard or garden. Many people use their loved one’s ashes while planting it. This will honor the person’s memory and make you feel their presence at home as well. People also place other memorabilia along with the plant to cherish the person a lot better.
We, at Charles J. O’Shea Funeral Home, provide all the necessary arrangements and services for your funeral needs. For more information on other related topics or to associate with us contact us.
