It is never easy to say farewell to a loved one that has passed away. Even if you had ample time and were told that he or she was ill or dying, saying good-by is tough. Furthermore, since everyone is different, each person's experience would be different too. So, if you find yourself in the situation to say farewell to a loved one, you might be curious what the proper way to do so is.

Ways to Bid Farewell

The truth is that there is no such thing as a right or wrong path. We at Nutmeg State Cremation Society feel that what you do must be meaningful to you and the decedent and that this is the most crucial factor.

  • One of the things you can do is write a heartfelt goodbye note. People often need to share their feelings, and they may do so at a funeral or memorial service. Writing a farewell letter will help you cope with your loss as you go through the stages of grief.
     
  • You can also make an album or scrapbook of photos, notes, stories, or any other writing and material you want. This book will act as a memory of the pleasant times you spent with someone special to you.
     
  • Another good way to say farewell is via song and poetry, as many people enjoy doing.
     
  • Planting trees in remembrance of a loved one is one way to reflect on life that can help you overcome grief, fear, and depression. Gardening can be a very relaxing experience, particularly if you enjoyed it with your loved one.
     
  • Volunteering with a charity organization in memory of those you've lost is another way to bid adieu..

At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we provide elegant funeral services and can help you with various aspects of the process. If you have questions, please contact us with your pre-planning requirements.
