If you are choosing to have cremation services in Lebanon, OR, you may be wondering how you can include others if they are living far away or just can’t attend for another reason. Many people want to be able to attend the service but simply can’t make it. That doesn’t mean they can’t still be included. There are a few ways you can include your family members and friends in a cremation service remotely. Here are a few of your options.
Many social media platforms allow you to go live and make live videos that can be shared with your friends and family members. If you are comfortable streaming the cremation service or memorial service, you can do so with your social media. Keep in mind that you may be allowing other people to view it as well, or else you will have to change your settings to choose a specific audience. You will also only be able to stream it for the people who are connected to you on the social network.
Hold Off On The Memorial Service
One of the convenient things about cremation is that you can cremate the body now and hold off and have the memorial service later. Once the ashes are in an urn, they can be kept safe and can always be displayed at a memorial service when you choose to have it. Unlike with a funeral when you are in a hurry to have the funeral while the body is still preserved, there is no rush with cremation. The body is already processed, and the ashes will be ready to display when the time comes. This can give family members time to plan to attend the service and even help you have more time to save up money for it.
If you just want to be able to comfort each other during your time of grief, you can make social media groups and chatrooms that include friends and family members who want to talk about the death with you. This is a good way to reach out to each other. You can talk about memories you have of the deceased or just focus on getting each other through the difficult time. This is also a good way to plan out a future memorial service and communicate with each other and find the time that is best for everyone.
