Life is hard right now. You might be holed up in your home, with your kids trying to do school, and you trying to work out of the house all at the same time. To top it all off, a family member may pass away and you have to organize cremation services in Lancaster, NC for them in some way or another. One of the hardest things about death right now is that you can’t gather together with more than 10 people or so—even for a funeral or memorial service. This can be a hard blow, in addition to the blow you’ve already experienced in losing your loved one.
This is where cremation services can come in helpful. When you choose cremation services for your loved one, you can put off the memorial services for as long as you want. While you might want to have them right away, your family members can’t travel, and you can’t gather together to honor that person. If you go with direct cremation, you can have the cremation done now, and then you can have services in the future when things are looking brighter, and people are able to gather in larger groups.
If you want to move forward, you could have some kind of smaller service now with just your smaller, immediate family members. You might be able to do something in your home, like talking about your memories and going over some good times. There’s nothing wrong with doing more than one memorial service, either. You can do something small right now and then have something larger later. Your other family members can do something small in their homes and in their locations as well.
Logistics sometimes get in the way of cremation service memorial services—especially right now. While it’s a shame and it can feel like you are putting off something important, it might be more important to you to have a service with everyone included to honor your loved one.
In this strange time in history—that children will read about in their history books someday—you are just doing the best you can. If that means mourning for your loved one on your own for a while and planning their memorial for a later date, then so be it. Everyone understands.
If you have to plan cremation services in Lancaster, NC, going with direct cremation and then saving the memorial service for another time when more people can gather might feel right to you.
