Saying goodbye for the final time may be difficult, and most families want to see loved ones go in style. There are several unique and creative methods to commemorate a loved one in a dignified manner. At Wagg Funeral Home, we propose the following options:

1. Develop An Illustrative Presentation

Thanks to contemporary technology, we have numerous images and video recordings of our loved ones. You can combine all of these clips to create a visual memorial displayed during a funeral ceremony—select photographs of events such as graduations, marriages, anniversaries, and awards to demonstrate their accomplishments. Additionally, using candid photos in ordinary life circumstances such as laughing, smiling, or crying shows emotion and this presentation is appropriate for a memorial service.

2. Cultivate a Garden

This is an excellent way to honour a loved one, particularly if they were cremated. You can spread ashes in a yard to commemorate them. Some individuals install a bench in the garden to create a comfortable space where the family can sit and reminisce about the departed one. It enables people to feel more connected and at ease with a loved one. Additionally, a garden is helpful to the environment.

3. Make A Charitable Contribution

Donating to charity is an excellent way to pay tribute to a departed loved one. Provide a gift in the decedent's name to a cause they believed in. Additionally, you can solicit contributions from other family members.

4. Commemorative Jewelry

Some individuals choose to save some portion of the decedent's ashes as pendants, bracelets, or other similar jewelry items. This kind of memorialization is more prevalent among intimate partners and married couples.

A knowledgeable funeral director can provide you with all of the facts you want regarding urns, the various materials, and more. If you need any additional information, feel free to call us and speak with the funeral director at Wagg Funeral Home. We can help you preplan a funeral and with information about the different services available.
