How A Cremation Ceremony Provides Healing, Wagoner, Oklahoma

While it's important to follow through with the wishes of the dearly departed, the steps you and your family should take following a cremation may not be immediately apparent. Crafting a meaningful moment of remembrance is just as important as ever, though, so it's worth considering a ceremony at some point.

For this and other funeral services, people in Muskogee and Wagoner, Oklahoma, turn to the family-owned Shipman Funeral Home & Crematory. They will guide you through every step of cremation, leaving you to concentrate on the best way of honoring your loved one's memory. 

cremationsWhy Should You Consider a Cremation Ceremony?

Funeral services offer a means of closure and acceptance, and there's no reason your family shouldn't have access to that relief before or after cremation. The level of comfort and support these ceremonies provide is indispensable, and they're also an excellent way to celebrate the life, accomplishments, and overall personality of those who have recently passed. As for the contents of the ceremony, feel free to get creative and invite attendees to share stories and favorite memories. From photo slideshows to a playlist that contains some of their favorite songs, getting others involved will serve to alleviate some of the common heartaches. 

One of the main advantages of a cremation ceremony is the fact that you're not locked into an immediate time frame. Your gathering could take place before the cremation, or it could serve as a remembrance later. You may even decide to incorporate a scattering ceremony after the formal memorial. The most important aspect of this decision is figuring out the right timing for those closest to the friend or family member. 

It may be difficult to think about planning an event like this, but you'll be glad you did once everyone comes together to reminisce. When you need help along the way, you can count on Shipman Funeral Home & Crematory. Call their Wagoner location at (918) 485-9525, contact their Muskogee Cremation Services location at (918) 682-1700, and visit their website for grief support and other helpful services.
