The Importance Of Personalizing A Funeral/Memorial Service
The idea of death as an event to be remembered is replacing the fear factor associated with it. This is increasingly encouraging people to give a thought to personalization -to the type of funeral and memorial services they want - instead of just a traditional funeral.
In a way, personalization of funeral and memorial services is gathering momentum and new ideas are taking shape that dilutes the gloom pervading the services after death.
What A Traditional Funeral Involves?
In the past, the ill or elderly rarely discussed how their funeral should be conducted. It remained the prerogative of the family to follow the rituals and ceremonies laid out by tradition and offered little scope for personalization.
Personalization Is Important But Why?
- Personalization focuses on the individual’s ideas and preferences about funeral services reflecting his personality traits.
- It adds warmth and a loving touch to the final goodbye that is in sync with the personality of the deceased. Contrast it to traditional services that appear like a mere formality to dispose of the body, apparently lacking in empathy.
- A personal touch to the funeral services makes them special, relevant and meaningful.
- People now prefer to celebrate the life of the deceased, thus focusing on his/her life.
A decision to opt for a personalized funeral or memorial service entails detailed discussions with the funeral director. He will coordinate to ensure that all the personalized aspects are taken care of to fulfill your and your family’s wishes. Family members and friends can add to the ideas to enrich the personal content.
Ideas about life and death are changing and personalization and customization are as much a part of death as any other aspect of life. If you want to know more about our services contact our caring staff at Nutmeg State Cremation Society through our online form.
