There’s never a good time to lose a loved one, but now can seem even harder than ever. Perhaps your loved one was hospitalized, and you couldn’t visit because of restrictions around the current virus pandemic. Maye your loved one was in a nursing home and you could only visit them through the phone or through their window’s glass and now, they’re gone. And once they passed on, you have to deal with cremation services in Monroe, NC. You want to honor their memory, but how can you do that when your loved one’s can’t even gather together? Here are some options to consider:

Online Meetings

There are online meeting options through Zoom, Facebook, Skype, and other outlets that allow you to see and speak with loved ones. You can have your immediate family with you and others via online outlets to talk together and have some kind of a memorial service. They can be a part of the proceedings as much as possible and everyone is together in spirit.

Livestream The Service

While no one can travel right now and groups are limited to 10 or less, you can have the service you want to have for your love done with just a few close family members present. You can stream that service live so that anyone else who wants to join you and your family in support and in honoring your loved one, can. The service can be watched right away, or it can be recorded for people to watch later.

Taping The Service

If livestreaming isn’t an option or if you don’t want to go with that choice, you can also tape, either audio or video, the service and then distribute it to your family members who might want to participate and view what you did for your loved one.

Everyone is able to honor that person, even if you can’t all be together.
