Saying your final goodbyes can get incredibly difficult, and most people want a proper sendoff for their loved ones. You can choose from several unique ways to memorialize your loved ones to honor their life with dignity. At Ocean County Cremation Service, we suggest these 4 unique ways mentioned below:

1. Create a Visual Presentation

Thanks to modern technology, you now have access to hundreds of photographs and videos of your loved ones. You can merge all these video clips and images and create a visual presentation to showcase at the service. Select pictures of notable milestones like graduation, anniversaries, weddings, and special awards. This way, you can highlight their achievements and life’s special moments. It's also a great idea to select a few candid images of them smiling, crying, laughing that showcase their character.

2. Plant a Garden

This is another excellent way to memorialize your loved ones; this is particularly true if they've been cremated. Consider scattering the ashes in a garden and tending to it to maintain the memory. You can also set up a bench at the site to spend some time there comfortably. It can help you feel closer and more connected to your loved one. Besides, a garden will also benefit the environment.

3. Donate to Charity

This is another excellent way to homer the memory of your loved one. You can select a cause that your loved one believed in and make a small donation in their name. You can also ask other members of your family and friends to contribute.

4. Create Memorial Jewellery

Some people also store a small amount of the deceased’s ashes in bracelets, pendants, and other such pieces. This is a lot more common in married couples and partners.
