Many people choose to have a cremation because it matches their religious beliefs, better fits their budget or just sounds like a more appealing option. Cremations are affordable, quick, and simple, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a memorial service too. If you are planning cremation services Muskego, WI and want to have a memorial before or after the cremation, Bevsek-Verbick Funeral Home and Crematory can help. Here are a few things you may want to consider adding to your memorial service.
A memory table is a table that displays the ashes and the deceased’s special things. The great thing about adding a memory table to your cremation memorial service is that you can customize it any way you want. You can add photos, clothing, trophies, special belongings, and more. Anything that reminds you of the deceased or that was important to them can be displayed on the table. This will give guests something to look at and will allow them to discuss their own memories of the deceased with family and friends.
If you are having the memorial service after the cremation, it may be a good idea to add a photo display so people can feel like they are viewing the deceased and can remember them. You can bring photo albums to the funeral, create a DVD slideshow, and even add photos to posters and display them around the room during the memorial service. Photos can be up the deceased or can be of family members, pets, or favorite places where they traveled. You can also encourage other family members to bring and share photos too. You can even make copies so guests can take them home.
Some people like to share memories of the deceased. You can have an open mic where people can choose to come forward and share their memories of their friend or family member. You can also have a small book or journal where people can write down special memories or moments. The journal can be given to the family after the service or displayed alongside the cremation urn in the family vault or the home of the family member who keeps it.
