Ideas for an Affordable Cremation Ceremony in Syracuse

Every day, we hear stories about how people are struggling to find meaningful ceremonies to honor a loved one who has been cremated. Somehow they think that cremation means there can be no remembrance service, or commemorative event – and that’s simply not true.
 
A cremation service or ceremony simply sets aside time to celebrate the personality and accomplishments of someone you loved. And, it gives comfort and support to those left behind. It can take place prior to the cremation, or afterwards. It can also be part of a scattering ceremony.
 
Here are some popular places to hold an affordable cremation ceremony in Syracuse:
 
  • The Beach
  • A Lake
  • A Local Park
  • The Family Backyard
  • A River or Creek Side
  • At Home
  • A Favorite Restaurant
  • A Golf Course
  • Onboard a Boat
 
The cremation ceremony you create should be full of experiences: sights, sounds, word, music; good food, and good friends. You could incorporate:
 
  • A photo slideshow of your loved one's life
  • A playlist of favorite songs
  • A time for guests to come forward to tell stories: they could light a candle or incense before or after story or offering has been shared.
  • Scattering the ashes during the ceremony
  • Distributing ashes in small containers so that guests take a memento to keep
  • Placing ashes in biodegradable balloons, to be released as a group
  • Placing small amount of ashes in floatable, biodegradable structure, to be released into water
  • Arranging for a dove or butterfly release
  • Gathering friends for a blessing of a garden or special spot in honor of your loved one
  • Blessings of various faiths or spiritual practices
