Selecting a gravesite marker and any decorations is the ideal way to capture a small portion of your loved one’s spirit. The hardest part is deciding which one to choose that represents them entirely. Fortunately, gravesite decorations are as diverse as humans are. With these three unique options, you can show your everlasting love and devotion to your loved one.
Losing a loved one does not generally feel like a time to celebrate. However, there are some individuals whose light in the world simply doesn’t lend itself to a staid and somber ceremony. In this case, or when the deceased has planned their own celebration of life service, there are plenty of ways to say your final goodbyes. A celebration of life may still have moments of sadness, but it is customary in many cultures to focus on the joyful aspects of your loved one’s life on earth.
When a loved one passes away, there are many different considerations that go into preparing them for their eternal rest. There is often a question around whether or not the body should be embalmed or whether a natural funeral would be more appropriate. If your friend or family member did not leave specific instructions for their funeral director about embalming, this important question is left up to the family to make based on the circumstances and their belief system.
