When you are choosing cremation services in Monroeville, PA for a loved one, there are going to be a lot of other decisions to make around that choice. Cremation opens up so many options that it can be hard to decide what you want to do. Technology is something you will want to keep in mind as it is going to help you open up even more options. Here are a few ways it can help you through the planning and implementation process.
You might want to consider live streaming whatever memorial service you have for your loved one. Perhaps there are some family members that can’t travel to your location for the services—they could watch online. Maybe you have older members or people who are vulnerable to illnesses—they could stay home, but still participate. Livestreaming can open up options and can allow you to invite anyone who might want to have a part in the day without creating huge numbers and without causing anyone to feel left out.
Spread The Obituary
Just like for a funeral, you will likely write an obituary for your loved one’s cremation service. It’s an announcement of their death and a nice way to move forward with whatever services you plan. While you can place obituaries in newspapers and that’s nice, you can also spread the word over the internet with technology. You can post the obituary on the cremation provider’s website or even on social media. It’s another avenue to help you spread the word about your loved one’s passing.
Get Donations Gathered
You might need funds for the memorial or cremation service you want to have for your loved one and someone in your family or friend group could set up an online donation drive for that. You might be surprised at how far and how fast those things spread and just how much you can raise in a short amount of time. If you have the money you need for your loved one’s services, you can still set up a donation drive online that directs donations to a certain charity to honor your loved one.
You can find out just about anything you want to know through technology today. If you are trying to figure out how to get through the grieving process, or how to help a friend through the process, you can look things up online. You can find area counselors to help you with grief or you can find out when grief support groups meet, what type they are, and what might be best for your situation. You can even find online communities and chat rooms where you can vent some emotions and perhaps feel less alone in figuring out where you are going from here with your grief.
