Cremation services in Waxhaw, NC allow you to arrange completely unique memorial services for your loved one, who has passed away. One of the things that is always unique and personal, but is also something many services have in common, is the memorial display. Whether you are having a memorial with a traditional feel to it or even a celebration of life, it’s nice to have a display that memorializes your loved one. People can look at that display, smile, cry, laugh, and go over some of the good times they had with the person who passed on. Here are a few tips to help you put together something memorable and special.
Ask Around For Memories
It’s important to include just the right things in the display, so talk to the people who knew your loved one best and find out what they knew them for. Perhaps one person watched baseball with them every week and knew their favorite players and teams. Another might exchange books with them and so on. Having some of those memories in the front of your mind can help you figure out what you want to put on display that will highlight those things.
Gather Pictures From Others
You might have an extensive picture collection yourself, so perhaps you can pull from there, but you might also want to get pictures from other family members who have something that shows another side to your loved one. Candid pictures are nice and can highlight a person’s life while bringing forward good memories. Go through some of the best family shots and get a lot of candid’s together that show your loved one’s personality as well.
Keep Space In Mind
As you start to gather and organize the display items, you will want to remember how much space you have to devote to the display. In a smaller room, you might only have one little table. Outside in a park, you might have to take at able yourself. Other places may have a whole wall filled with tables that you can use. The space you have available is a big deal in how much you want to organize for the display.
In addition to pictures, there might be some special items you want to display on the tables. IF your loved one was a veteran and had some awards, include those. Perhaps place their well-read Bible or favorite book near a picture of them. Some of the items they loved the most can be touching things for others to see in the display.
