It’s never easy to deal with the loss of a loved one and everyone has a different way to handle their grief. Honoring the decedent and sharing their sadness with others is a good way to recover and feel better. At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we recommend these interesting and helpful ways to honor the decedent:

1. Plant a tree in their honor

This is one of the best ways to honor the memory of a dearly departed loved one. A tree is a representation of strength, wisdom, hope, and goodness. It can grow and live for a long time so you can have a memorial that can offer solace for decades. Trees are also good for the environment, which means you’re doing some good in their name.

2. Host a charity event and memorial service at the same time

A great way to honor the memory of your deceased loved one is to support a good cause in their name. You can turn the memorial service into a charity fundraiser and request that the attendees make donations in the decedent’s name. If that feels like too much effort during an already stressful time, you can set up a charity fund in the decedent’s name and ask people to donate. This is a great way to preserve the decedent’s memory.

3. Finish the bucket list

Few people finish everything they wanted to do before they pass away. If the decedent had an unfulfilled dream, see if you can accomplish it in their name. For example, if the decedent wanted to see a live performance of their favorite musician and weren’t able to, try to attend the performance as a way to honor them. This can be a good way to deal with grief.

At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we provide comprehensive funeral services and can help you with all aspects of the process so if you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
