Not everyone has a ‘bucket list,’ but a lot of people have things in mind that they would like to do before they pass away someday. When you lose a loved one, they may have things on their list they never got around to doing, whether the list is written or something you just talked about with them. If you are looking for a unique way to celebrate them around cremation services in Baltimore, MD, consider using their bucket list for ideas. Here are some of the things you could do to honor them using the things they wanted to do, but left undone in the end.
Take A Trip With Family
If your loved one always wanted to go to Alaska, Hawaii, or somewhere else, arrange a family trip to that location in their memory. You can take family pictures for them and visit the places they wanted to see as you think about them. You could have a memorial for them when you arrive, and you could even think about scattering their ashes (or some of their ashes) in that location as well. The trip is a nice way for your family to support one another, bond further, and remember your loved one.
Put Together An Activity
Was there something your loved one always wanted to do, but never got around to actually doing? Maybe they wanted to learn how to surf, figure out how to knit hats for babies, or they always talked about skydiving. Whatever the activity is, you could put something together as a memorial to them to honor their memory. Have someone teach your family surfing, even if you aren’t close to the beach. Take a knitting class and knit hats for babies in their name. Even if no one in your family actually wants to go skydiving, you could find a zero-gravity experience that feels similar so you know what they would have experienced if they ever went.
Go Through The List
It’s sad that your loved one didn’t get to do all of the things that they wanted to, but if you have a list in hand, there’s nothing stopping you from accomplishing those things for them. They can live vicariously through you as you get through the items, one by one, in memory of them.
There are lots of things your loved one may have wanted to do in their lifetime, but time often runs out before we expect it to. When you have cremation services in Baltimore, MD, consider using the things they wanted to do as inspiration for their memorial services.
