Funeral homes in Mohnton, PA are very adaptive to current times. When cremation became something that more people were accepting and using, funeral homes adopted it and now regularly offer it. It is something that is chosen in about half of the cases. When the current pandemic hit, funeral homes also had to quickly adapt. People were still passing on and funeral homes could not just shut their services down. Instead, they had to find safe ways to offer them. One safe way was by offering virtual memorials. If you have a family member pass on during this time, here are some things to think about when considering virtual memorials.
Be Open To Virtual Options
First, you need to think through the option and decide whether or not you are open to a virtual memorial. There is more than one virtual option so consider them all and be honest with yourself as to whether or not you would be satisfied with the choice or if you think your loved one would be okay with it. There are choices where the immediate family has a service and everyone else live streams the service. There are also fully virtual services of many different kinds. You need to know what’s out there before you can decide.
Consider Those Who Would Have To Travel
You will want to think about family members who would have to travel to the area in order to attend services as you think about what services to offer. If your family is spread out, and travel isn’t recommended, having a virtual option, at least for them, is a nice gesture. If you are doing a service fast after the person passed on, it might be hard for people to arrange travel, too. Think about those who are a ways off and what they might need to come to terms with the family death.
Think Of Safety Measures In Today’s World
There’s nothing you want for your family right now more than their safety. And if you can do anything to protect them from everything going on in the world right now, you would. Having a virtual service amidst the dangers of today might be a good answer for you. Consider having something small with masks required and then a virtual service for everyone else.
Let The Experts Deal With Logistics
Whatever you decide to do, it’s certainly handy to have professionals helping you with the process. They can handle the logistics so you have much less to worry about with the virtual service planning process.
