When you are organizing cremation services in Eatonville, WA, you, of course, will be thinking about your loved one’s needs. But you will also want to think about your family members. Some people might feel better about the situation if they are more involved in the services themselves. They might even reach out to you and ask if there’s anything they can do. Here are a few things you might dole out to others as jobs for the cremation services.
Hand Out Pictures
While the program is always a nice keepsake, you might also have pictures of your loved one that you would like to distribute. Put someone in charge of making sure everyone who attends the services gets a chance to see the different shots and the ability to choose one they’d like to take home. This could be the same person handing out programs, or someone else who can spend more time with each guest.
When the guests arrive at the funeral home or church, you can have someone help them get seated, like an usher at a wedding. They can see people to their seats. That is especially helpful if the room gets full. They can keep an eye on where there are empty spots, making it easier to direct people to those spots when they arrive.
Sing/Play A Song
If you have a talented family member, you might ask them to sing a song at the service or perhaps play the piano or another instrument. It’s a nice way for them to honor your loved one, but it’s also something everyone will enjoy. They might feel more comfortable with their instrument of choice than in other roles, too.
Do A Reading
Depending on how you are setting up the services, there might be a chance for someone or several people, to do readings. You can spread that among a few family members so they can participate in the service, even in a small way.
At certain memorial services, you might have an open mic time where anyone can share whatever they want about your loved one. In other services, you might designate certain people. You might have your eye on family members who have nice stories or those who are comfortable speaking in front of a crowd. It can be a memorable way to get details about your loved one and allow someone to participate in the service more.
There are lots of jobs that can be done in regard to cremation services in Eatonville, WA, and if you are in charge of the services, you might need to find people to fill them.
