When a family member or friend passes away and you want to share your grief and other information with people in the online world, there are certain things you could or even should post and others you might want to stay away from. If there are cremation services in Charleston, IL, here are some ideas for things you might want to post:

Service Details

If you are the family member in charge of the service (or if you have permission from that person) and the service is open to the public, you might want to post the details of the service so those you aren’t able to reach or didn’t think to reach out to, will know what they need to know in case they need to attend. Putting service details online is sometimes better than placing them in a newspaper since the reach is so much wider.

Obituary Information

It’s often nice to place a link to your loved one or friend’s obituary so those who didn’t already know are notified that the person has passed on. They can read the details by clicking on the link, which could also include service information if you want it to.


Healing Affirmations

When you are going through grief, you might want to encourage others who are going through something similar with healing affirmations. Watch for memes or grab helpful quotes that mean a lot to you right now and post them so everyone knows you are working on your grief and there to support others in your life.

Sometimes it can be hard to talk about a loved one, but when they first pass on, you are filled with memories and you just want to share them. If you’d like the online world to know what kind of person your loved one was, there’s nothing wrong with posting a memory or a picture in tribute to them. You can honor their memory and allow others to see what kind of person they really were.

Ask A Question

If you’re struggling with something in relation to the cremation service and you don’t know where to turn, there are tons of people reading posts that might be able to help. You might ask what you should wear to a memorial service, for example, what types of songs are good for these events, or even how people have dealt with grief. You never know what kind of help you can get when you ask a question on social media.
