The Importance of Honoring Your Loved One’s Funeral Wishes
When a loved one passes away, it could be an extremely overwhelming and difficult time for the family and close friends. Aside from this, when it comes to planning the funeral service, there can be a disconnect between what certain family members want and what others don’t.
Things to Keep in View:
Some people have very specific ideas when it comes to how they want their funeral service to be handled, after their demise. This is why it becomes important to look for a good way to honor your loved one after their demise.
- If the decedent has made mention of exactly how they want their funeral to be, via a will, it’s important that you honor that wish and organize the service in that manner.
- Some people also preplan and pre-pay for their funeral. In this case, the family needs to ensure that the person’s wishes are taken into account and the funeral service is handled in that way.
- If the decedent wasn’t very traditional or conventional in their outlook and didn’t want a standard funeral, the family can consider the landing a celebration of life. This is a great way to honor the person’s memory and respect them.
- Aside from this, you can honor your loved one by doing something beneficial in their name. For example, you can donate something to their favorite charity, plant trees in their favorite garden or even dedicate a bench at a park they visit often.
Sometimes, the details that have been outlined by the person in their will, may be entirely different from what you had wanted for the service. Regardless of what you think, it’s important to focus on what the decedent wanted, and make sure the funeral and the service is in line with their wishes
