Cremation services in Elton, PA are often special and customized because of the things you display around the room for the service. People can walk around before or after the service portion of the day and look at these items, think of your loved one, and remember them in special ways. Here are a few things you might want to display during the memorial service.
Pictures are often the most special thing to have on hand at a memorial. Your loved one has already been cremated so even if they are present, they are in an urn. Pictures of them in different stages of their life and with different family members can bring their memory alive. You can have boards up with pictures, display them on tables, or even lay out photo albums for people to look through. It’s nice to have variety so everyone is able to remember your loved one as they were when they were alive in different stages.
Your loved one might have always worn a certain necklace, or perhaps had a favorite shirt. These are things that you might place out on display for people to look at because they will likely bring up thoughts of your loved one. If they have something they were known for, like the fact that they loved ducks more than any other animal, you can display photos or figures of that bird as well to remind people of them. Think about their style and personality and choose belongings that suit the occasion.
Your loved one may have collected something, like certain statues, bells, or even books. You might bring some of that collection to the memorial service to remind people of something that was special to your loved one. If they have enough of those items, you might even allow people to choose one to take home with them so they have something to remember that person by.
Today, people’s lives are often well documented with videos. While pictures are special, hearing the person’s voice and seeing them move around in a video can be even more special. You can put together video clips and have them running in the background of the service before and after things happen so people can see that person in their prime.
