Organizing cremation services in Humboldt, IL can feel overwhelming because it means you’ve lost a loved one and you are mourning. It can also feel like a big job because unlike a funeral, cremation services can be whatever you want. You have so many options it can be hard to make a choice. If you’d like to have some traditional things at the service, like readings, there are lots of things to consider. Here are a few to think about as you move forward with plans.
If your loved one was a believer, you might want to use some Bible verses as a part of their service. Use something that is filled with hope or that imbibes your loved one’s spirit. You can also simply turn to some of their favorite verses to comfort those who knew them well and knew that they enjoyed those verses.
There are some very powerful poems, new and old, that can mean a lot at a cremation service. Perhaps your loved one liked poetry and they had a favorite. That would be a great one to share. Maybe you have run across something that has special meaning to your loved one’s situation. That would also work well. Or maybe there is just a favorite poet in the family and sharing something from them would be special.
Sharing certain songs can be very special, but you can also simply share the lyrics of a song as a reading. Reading the words can sometimes make them stand out more than the song itself and when you read them, it could have special meaning to your family members.
Something A Family Member Wrote
If you have a writer in the family, perhaps someone has written something, either about your loved one or something that pertains to the situation, that you can read. Reading something for a loved one that someone in the family has written can make it feel even more personal and unique since it’s unlike any reading that others will have at their services.
Something Your Loved One Wrote
IF you got letters from your loved one, perhaps there was something profound in one of them, or maybe even something silly, that you would like to share with everyone to showcase your loved one’s personality and spirit.
