After laying your loved one to rest at a funeral home in Cleveland, OH, how exactly do you go about commemorating that person’s life going forward?

Fortunately, there are lots of different things you can do to commemorate or celebrate the life of a dearly departed relative who you had shared so many memories with. What follows is a look at some practical things you can do after the body disposition has been completed.

Memorial Jewelry

Memorial jewelry is an increasingly popular way for people to remember deceased loved ones. The sky’s the limit in terms of what’s possible. There are companies that can, for instance, take cremation ashes and create a diamond. Other types of jewelry are also possible. If your loved one was buried in a casket rather than cremated, you can get a locket that includes a picture of the deceased. The great thing with memorial jewelry is that it’s something that you can use year-round as a constant reminder of how dear the departed was — and still is — to you.

Go Someplace Special

If there were places where you and your deceased loved one went and shared special times, these locations would be great areas to visit to commemorate the person’s passing. Did you have a special camping spot or favorite road trip destination? You can remember and commemorate these good times by paying a visit to these places. Of course, as you reflect, don’t simply remain in the past. Let the memories give you the fuel to continue living life and enjoying every moment to the fullest extent possible. As you’ll see, there’s a lot of life left to live after the Cleveland funeral home service by All Ohio Cremation & Burial Society. So, live it up.

Support a Cause

Did your deceased loved one have a cause that he or she loved? Maybe the person was a staunch environmentalist, was distressed at the plight of the homeless and poor, or always wanted to contribute toward getting pets spayed to prevent the rising number of homeless pets filling up animal shelters. Well, you can donate to a charity and perhaps even volunteer your time to help support the cause on a more hands-on basis. Doing such a thing would be a fine tribute to the life of someone you knew and loved, and any charity benefiting from your financial and/or volunteer assistance would be the better for having more support.
