When someone dear to you dies, you might feel like keeping some of their belongings and it is natural to feel that way. As a matter of fact, it is one way to pay tribute to them. While some families keep videos, drawings, or pictures, others desire something distinctive.

Ways To Memorialize The Departed

After the service, there are various ways to honor your loved one. Ocean County Cremation Services specialists have outlined some of these:

1. Create Unique Memorial Jewelry

This is not a new practice, but few people know it is an excellent way to memorialize a loved one. You can use some of their hair to make a little pendant or even a ring if you choose. If the departed person was a spouse or companion, this is a nice way to honor them.

2. Plant A Tree

Planting a tree is a unique and eco-friendly way to honor someone important to you. If the individual was cremated, you can bury their ashes in your garden and plant a blossoming or fruiting tree in their memory. Since you will see the tree in your yard, it
would offer you solace.

3. Donate to a Charity They Supported

If the deceased had routinely donated to a specific charitable institution, you could contribute some amount in their name or volunteer at a homeless shelter.

4. Get Artwork Made

This is a unique way to honor a deceased loved one. You can hire an artist to work with you and discuss your ideas. They would be able to produce something unique, such as artwork that reflects your dear one's interests, hobbies, or something meaningful to them.

For information about our services, please call Ocean County Cremation Service today. Our team is here to help you with the details you need about how the cremation process works.
