If you are working on cremation services in Wernersville, PA for a loved one, or you hear that someone you know is having one, there are options today. If you live far away and can’t travel that far or if you are worried about gathering in a larger group, there are often virtual options. If the family is livestreaming the event or having something virtual, there are still things you will want to consider in advance. Here are a few such things.
Check Your Computer Programs
You will want to make sure that whatever computer program you need to run the service is working in advance. Perhaps have a friend test it with you or ask the funeral home to help you with a test run so you can ensure everything is working. You don’t want to get to the time of the service and then find out at that time the program you need is updating on your computer and unable to run when you need it.
Don’t Show Up Late
Even though the service is a virtual one, it’s still best to get there on time so you aren’t late and disrupting others by buzzing in or appearing out of nowhere. It’s best to be on time or even slightly early so you aren’t disrespectful of their time and the service they have going on.
Dress Nicely If You Appear Visible
You won’t be visible in every virtual service, but if people are going to be able to see you, it’s good to dress nicely, as you if you were gathered together for the service in person. Even if they can’t see you, you might want to dress well as a matter of respect for the type of service you are attending, virtual or not.
Mute Your Microphone For The Duration
Unless you are supposed to share memories, you will want to keep your microphone muted. You never know when the phone might ring, or a dog might bark and it’s best to ensure that the microphone is off, so you don’t disturb the process of the service that is going on around you.
Have Tissues And Water Nearby
Instead of having to get up and move around during the service, which you wouldn’t want to have to do during an in-person service, have some tissues and water nearby in case you need them. It’s better to be prepared than to look like you are getting up to get a snack or something.
