Cremation Ceremony Suggestions

Every day, we hear stories about how people are struggling to find meaningful ways to honor a loved one who has been cremated. Somehow they think that cremation means there can be no remembrance service, or commemorative event – and that’s simply not true.

A cremation Celebration of Life service simply sets aside time to celebrate the personality and accomplishments of someone you loved. And, it gives comfort and support to those left behind. It can take place prior to the cremation, or afterwards. It can also be part of a scattering ceremony.

Here are some popular places for Celebration of Life services:

  • The NCC Chapel - formal or informal
  • The Family Residence
  • A Place of Worship
  • A Neighborhood Clubhouse
  • A Favorite Restaurant
  • During a Family Reunion
  •  A Local Park
  • A Golf Course
  • A Mountain Cabin
  • A Favorite Family Vacation Spot

The cremation ceremony you create should be full of experiences: sights, sounds, word, music; good food, and good friends. You could incorporate:

  • A memorial reception or luncheon
  • A photo slideshow of your loved one's life
  • A playlist of favorite songs
  • A time for guests to come forward to tell stories: they could light a candle before or after the story has been shared.
  • Scattering the ashes during the ceremony
  • Distributing ashes in small containers so that guests take a memento to keep
  • Placing ashes in biodegradable balloons, to be released as a group
  • Placing small amount of ashes in floatable, biodegradable structure, to be released into water
  • Arranging for bagpipes or a dove release
  • Gathering friends for a tree planting, garden or special spot in honor of your loved one

When Is the Time Right for You to Plan a Service?
Perhaps you aren’t yet ready to plan such an event. And that’s okay, but we encourage you to have some cremation service or gathering at some time – whether now or in the future – to commemorate your loved one’s life. When you’re ready, call us at (970) 351-0130 to explore your Celebration of Life options.
