How to Incorporate Nature into the Funeral of a Beloved

One of the most trying and difficult times in the life of a person is when they have to bid goodbye to a loved one forever. A personalized funeral service - one that is tailored to the deceased’s memories - is a fitting celebration of their life and also a great way to honor them in their death. If the departed was a nature-lover, you can personalize the service by incorporating nature into it. Here are some ways in which you can do that:

1. Have an outdoor service

If the weather permits, you can hold the funeral service in an outdoor location. You can hold it on a beach, a park, or by a lake or river. An outdoor location can help alter the atmosphere of the service, with a sunny day casting a glow of hopefulness over an otherwise gloomy occasion.
