No matter the circumstances, when someone we love passes, it is never an easy time. In a time of grief and sorrow, it is important that we do our best to remember the good times we had with this person and try to celebrate their life. Unfortunately, the seemingly impossible task of planning the funeral ceremony is on the family of that loved one, which is why we at Rose Cart of San Jose in San Jose, CA, have come up with some ideas to make your loved one's ceremony more of a celebration of their life and keep their memory everlasting.
When planning a ceremony, flowers are always a beautiful direction to go when deciding how to decorate. We recommend the Peaceful Prayers Serenity Angel Arrangement White. The Peaceful Prayers Serenity Angel arrangement has a stunning yet subtle look to it. Placed in the center of this arrangement is a white ceramic angel statue that will make for a beautiful keepsake you can keep in your home in memory of your loved one.
A memory table is a great way to highlight the most significant parts of our loved one's life. When putting together a memory table, pictures are always a good option, but try to incorporate meaningful items for their life. For example, if they served our country, placing their uniform and/or accolades on the table will show the sacrifice they made for us and the pride and dedication they had for their country. Try to think of the things they most enjoyed in their life and they took the most pride in and try to show those memories through the memory table.
Keep in mind that this ceremony is about remembering those that have left us, and we want to incorporate the things they loved and enjoying in their lifetime. When deciding on what food, snacks, and beverages to provide, think about their favorite cuisines. If their favorite meal was pizza and ice cream, serve guests pizza and ice cream as a way of celebrating their life; think about what they would have wanted. It's still okay to have other options of food or drinks as not everyone will like it, or some can't have it because of allergies or other dietary restrictions, but simply having their favorite dish available is certain to spark old memories with guests.
While it's never easy losing the ones we love and planning the funeral ceremony might initially seem to make the grieving process harder, take it as an opportunity to give them one last celebration and remember all the good things they accomplished in their life. Think about everything and everyone they loved in their life and include them in the celebration. We at Rose Cart of San Jose in San Jose, CA, hope our advice, ideas, and suggestions helped you. We want to make this process as easy as possible for you and are always here to offer our skills, services, and expertise to the best of our abilities.
