Actions After Cremation Promotes Healing

North Miami Beach, FL cremation

North Miami Beach, FL cremation is final, and it can feel rather somber once the process is over. However, there are plenty of actions you can take when you are mourning to help you get through the hardest portions of it. Actions bring an element of meaning to a person’s death and help you bond with those around you. Here are a few things to consider to promote your own healing and the healing of those around you after the death of a loved one.  

Receiving Lines 

If your loved one was cremated, you don’t necessarily have to have a formal funeral, but gathering together with family and friends for a memorial service of some kind is always nice. If you do that, receiving family and friends’ individuals can help you see everyone that is there and receive and give comfort in both directions.  

Group Messages 

Not everyone is going to feel comfortable speaking at a memorial, scattering of the ashes, or another gathering. But scriptures, poems, shared memories and other sayings can help everyone express their emotions over the loss. This shared experience can bring people together for the common purpose of grief.  

Scattering The Ashes 

This is something that many families like to reserve for those closest to the person who passed on. Gathering together and scattering the remains allows those involved to fully acknowledge the reality that the person is gone. It also allows family members to honor their loved one by choosing a special spot for them to rest.  


If you have a memorial service of some kind and you want to open things to the public, having a reception after is always nice. The memorial can either be a somber event or a celebration of life, but either way, it’s not every day that group of people is together in one place. It’s a nice time for family members to catch up and gather for a common cause. After the service, the reception can be filled with food, drinks, stories, and more.
