Cremation services in Cumru Township, PA are designed to honor someone who passed away in a special and unique way. If the services you had for a loved one were short and you don’t feel like they did enough, or if they were everything you wanted and you still want to bring more honor to your loved one, there are plenty of options. There are never too many ways to honor someone. Here are a few things you can do, either with others or on your own, to honor someone who passed away, even after their cremation services are over.
Have Another Memorial
Someone put together a memorial service, but perhaps there were things you wanted to do that weren’t done. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a memorial service of your own. You can keep it small and intimate, if you’d like, and do whatever you feel should be done. There’s nothing wrong with having more than one memorial service, especially if you want to honor someone in a different way than they’ve already been honored.
Remember On A Birthday/Anniversary
It will be hard to get through the grief after your loved one passes, but even when you feel like things are getting lighter in the emotions area, you will be hit hard when a birthday or anniversary arrives. Instead of just trying to get through the day, it might be best to recognize the day with a celebration. Invite family members over and have a cake in honor of your loved one’s birthday. Share memories and start new traditions to make it easier to get through the day together.
Set Up A Memorial
There are ways to memorialize someone that are more permanent than services. You might want to plant a tree in a park or even in your yard in honor of your loved one. You could dedicate a park bench to them or buy a brick along a walkway and have it engraved. There are endless options for more permanent memorials that would give you a place to visit to remember your loved one and keep their name at the forefront for many generations to come.
Donate In Their Name
IF your loved one thought education was super important, you could start a scholarship fund in their name. If they worked at a local soup kitchen regularly, donate some funds to that charity on their behalf. Donating in their name can bring them honor and is always a nice way to remember them in a way they would appreciate.
There are lots of other things you can do to honor a loved one, even after their official memorial and cremation services in Cumru Township, PA are complete. The professionals at Bean Funeral Homes & Cremation Services, Inc. are filled with ideas that can help you figure out what direction you want to take if there’s even more you want to do after the cremation services that are planned are behind you.
