For most of the population in the U.S. Memorial Day is a vacation day to spend with family and friends, but for some it is a sad day, especially for those families of brave service men and women that joined our Armed Forces to guarantee our freedom and way of life and never returned. Dealing with the death of a loved one, especially a sudden and early death is very traumatic and can leave emptiness in the hearts of their immediate family. That emptiness will almost always remain for the rest of their lives, however, there are ways to minimize that emptiness and that is through meaningful memorialization.
What is memorialization? It is the act of paying tribute and preserving the memory of a person. Up until today, most memorialization is done at the time of a funeral or visitation and may includes video tributes, photo collages, and a ceremony. But what happens after it is all done? Who remembers the life of that person past next month or even a year? For those who remember, what do they remember? Did those video tributes, photo collages and ceremony provide meaningful memorialization?
What is meaningful memorialization? Meaningful memorialization provides a true memory of a the life of person and captures who they were in life for others to honor and learn about them for years to come. Meaningful memorialization minimizes that feeling of emptiness for those left behind and provides a means to follow their guidance, keep them close to their heart and always remember what made them so special.
