Ideas for Memorializing Your Loved One After The Service
When you lose a close family member, it is very natural that you would want to keep some of the items that belong to him or her. That is one way to honor the person's memory. While some people choose photographs and paintings, others choose videos. There is no set way in which you can go through this process, and there are different ways to memorize a loved one after the service. Here are some of them.
- You can plant a tree in the person's memory, and it is a very eco-friendly way to memorialize someone that has passed away. If the person's mortal remains have been cremated, the ashes can also be buried in your backyard, and you can plant a tree above them. Seeing the tree grow and bloom will provide you some peace.
- Many companies provide memorial jewelry crafting services. You can give a few strands of your loved one’s hair and create some unique jewelry based on your liking. This is a good idea for someone that has lost their partner or spouse.
- If your loved one had a favorite charity, you could make some donations to it. You can help the needy, or work for a nonprofit organization in the memory of your loved one.
- Some families also like to commission artwork that memorializes their loved one. You can hire a good artist who would be able to work closely with you and provide you some ideas about how they can create unique artwork that will indicate your loved one's hobbies or passions.
These are just some of the few ways in which you can keep the memory of your loved one alive. At Charles J. O'Shea Funeral Homes, we provide comprehensive funeral services and can help you with all aspects of the process. So if you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
