This article is a comprehensive summary of all the things that can be arranged to have a meaningful and loving service.
Things that contribute towards arranging a meaningful service:
- Use technology: During a difficult time, COVID-19 has put many in. Family funeral services can be hard to arrange and difficult to attend due to restrictions imposed by the Australian government. In addition, there might be family members and friends who live in different parts of the world and are unable to attend in person due to lockdowns or cancelled flights. This is where technology comes in, allowing viewers worldwide to view the funeral service and pay their respects. Live-streams are a great way to do so, which is possible in great quality with the help of the latest camera gear and good internet, and good memorial service providers will help arrange for it without a doubt.
- Create a social media group: There are many times when family funeral services are arranged, but people fail to attend, mainly due to them either not being aware of the dates or would not have gotten an invite. This situation can be avoided by creating a group on either of the social media platforms that are most common to the people who are intended to attend and sending them invites and other relevant information concerning the funeral so that they do not miss sending off their loved ones with love and respect.
- Have a guest book (digital or physical): The memorial service providers who know how to do their job well certainly understand how vital kind and supportive messages can be for the family of the individual who has passed.
Having a memorial service with either a digital or a physical memorial book is immensely significant for the family. This will allow the participants in the service to share some great memories of the loved one or give some kind and supporting words for the family to read. The family can keep the book or a digital copy and read it whenever they miss their beloved and want to cherish their life and be grateful for the life they lived and shared with them.
- Take it slow: Good family funeral services will ensure the family is not feeling rushed with the responsibilities and pushes into a tight schedule. More often than usual, family members are trying to deal with the loss and simultaneously plan the memorial, which can often be overwhelming for them. The service is a strong part of the process individuals take to grieve the loss and hence should always be done with the help of the service provider team and allow them to handle tasks as they are professionals and know what they are doing.
