Modern Ways to Memorialize a Loved One
Losing a loved one is never easy but honoring them with a beautiful memorial service can go a long way to help family members recover. At Darte Funeral Home, we always encourage clients to personalize the memorial service to ensure everyone derives some comfort from it. You can memorialize a loved one in many unique and interesting ways, as mentioned below.
1. Planting a Tree
Planting a tree in a loved one’s name is probably the noblest way to remember them. Trees continue to grow and thrive for decades, especially if they receive proper care. Trees help the environment, add greenery to your surroundings, and can provide shelter. Some species can even outlast a human lifespan so the tree you plant in a loved one’s honor may live longer than you.
2. Commissioning an Art Piece
Commissioning an art piece is also a great way to honor a loved one. You can ask a local artist to create something beautiful and meaningful. This is a great gesture because it supports the local art community and gives you a unique memorial for a loved one. Choose an artist in your loved one’s preferred field. For example, if the deceased individual loved intricate oil paintings, commission an oil painter for this purpose.
3. Name a Star After Them
You can name a star after a loved one at an affordable cost. Several associations will register an available star in your loved one's name and provide documentary proof of it. Stars light up the sky and will stay there for thousands, if not millions of years. Like a tree, the named celestial body will outlive you by centuries.
