Ceremony/Service followed by Cremation
Most experts in the field of psychology agree that some form of ceremony recognizing that a life was lived - and now has died - helps us to move in a positive direction following loss. This recognition can help initiate the healing process and assist us in moving ahead with a new chapter of our lives.
Most families choose to have some type of ceremony before cremation for this very reason. This ceremony can include a clergy person, but may include friends and family giving simple eulogies and sharing memories. This "Life Celebration" concentrates on who the person was in life: their joys and accomplishments, as well as the things that were important to them. Favorite musical selections are often a part of this event. Viewing is available for those who wish to do so.
Cremation followed by a Memorial Service
Some will choose to have cremation before the memorial service. In this case, the urn is typically displayed at the service, along with photographs and other personal memory items.
While this option does not afford public viewing for family and friends, it does incoroporate the element of a ceremony that allows people to gather together and say goodbye in a meaningful way.
