Grief and mourning is one of the hardest things anyone has to deal with. Especially if you have lost someone particularly close to you. You want the person back desperately, but since you know you can’t have that, the next thing you want is for them to have wonderful final services so everyone who knew and loved them can say goodbye. There are traditional burial services, of course, but also lots of cremation options in Skokie, IL for your family to consider. Here are a few that might fit your needs.
Traditional Services Followed By Cremation
If you still want to have traditional services, but you also want cremation, you can have both. Run the traditional services and your loved one can be cremated after. You can rent a casket to use at those services to cut back on costs and then follow through with cremation. Once cremation is complete, you might want to have a memorial service, a scattering of the ashes, or another commemorative gathering. Your loved one gets the best of both worlds with these services.
Cremation Followed By Memorial Services
If you’d rather not go the traditional route, you can have cremation done sooner and then have a memorial service with the urn present in Skokie, IL. Memorials services can take place anywhere you want them to be held and at any time. They can also include as many unique elements as you’d like. This freedom helps many families feel an intimate connection to both each other and the loved one who passed one.
The Options For The Ashes
Cremation services also include a lot of options in terms of what you do with the ashes. When you think of cremation, you might automatically think of an urn. And that is definitely an option. If your family is going to keep your loved one’s ashes, you’ll get a nice urn and place it somewhere of honor in your home. But that’s by far from the only option. You could get a less expensive urn and scatter the ashes somewhere special. You could bury the ashes and then plant a tree on top or bury the ashes in a cemetery. If several family members want to keep some of your loved one with them, you can get smaller urns that sit behind picture frames so everyone can enjoy having the loved one around. You can even do more unique things like have the ashes made into diamonds for priceless jewelry items that will last for many generations. The only limit is your imagination.
