5 Memorable Ways To Honor Your Loved One Once They’ve Passed On

Published: July 14, 2022

After the death of a loved one, it is customary to want to hold on to some of their possessions. Doing so is a form of tribute to them. Some families are happy with the standard things like videos, drawings, and photographs; others look for something more original.

How To Honor Your Loved One

When the funeral is over, there are many ways to remember the deceased. Experts from Affordable Funeral & Cremation have highlighted some of these:

1. Create Unique Memorial Jewelry

Although not a novel practice, this memorialization idea is often overlooked. You can create a charming necklace or even a ring using a small amount of their hair. It is a fitting way to remember the deceased as a partner or companion.

2. Plant A Tree

A tree planted in memory of a loved one is a thoughtful and environmentally responsible gesture. If the deceased was cremated, you might wish to honor their memory by planting a flowering or fruiting tree in your garden instead of a traditional casket burial. Your tree in the yard can serve as a source of comfort as you will see it every day.

3. Donate To A Charity They Supported

Volunteering at a soup kitchen or donating to a charity the deceased frequently supported are appropriate ways to honor their memory and continue their legacy.

4. Get Artwork Made

Such an unconventional memorial would be a fitting tribute to the departed. Employing an artist allows you to collaborate with someone who can help give form to your thoughts. They can create something unique, like an original piece of art that pays tribute to your loved one and their passions and personality.

5. Record Of Your Past Experiences

Create a miniature museum with pictures, drawings, published writings, and valuables in a shadow box or chest. Please do something to help your children feel like this is their home.
