After a funeral home is done carrying cremation services in Pontotoc, MS for a loved one, you and your family will get their cremated remains back. You’ll then be able to do almost anything that you want with them. You can bury them in a cemetery, store them in a cremation niche, or even scatter them in a special place. But in the immediate aftermath of your loved one’s cremation, taking your loved one’s remains home with you might be your best option. Find out why below.
Makes it possible for you to maintain a connection with your loved one
You’re going to miss your loved one in the days, weeks, and months following their Pontotoc, MS cremation in a big way. Bringing their remains back home with you won’t make you miss them any less. But it will make it possible for you to maintain some kind of a connection with them, and this connection will make your dark days a little easier than they would be otherwise. You’ll get peace of mind simply by having your loved one’s remains around.
Gives you an opportunity to create a display for your loved one
When you welcome your loved one’s remains into your home, you’ll want to do more with them than just stick them in the back of a closet somewhere. You’ll want to show them off by creating a special display for them. You’ll appreciate being able to set up this display so that you can feel your loved one’s presence in your home. It’s another thing that will provide you with a small sense of comfort while you’re mourning your loved one’s loss.
Allows you to bring your loved one’s remains to important family events
Are there weddings, graduations, and other important family events that are set to take place in the near future? If so, your loved one obviously won’t be able to attend them in person anymore. But you can always bring their remains along with you to the events if you would like. You and your fellow family members will take some solace in the fact that your loved one will be there for these special moments. It’ll make not having them around anymore slightly easier on you all.
Lets you take your loved one’s remains with you if you ever move
Moving might not be something that’s on your radar right now. But there is always a chance that you’ll sell your current home and move at some point down the line. And if and when you do, you’ll be able to take your loved one’s remains with you. This will be especially nice for those who might decide to move to a new city or state. You won’t have to worry about leaving your loved one behind when you make a move like this.
