Living memorial ideas to honor a loved one
Plant a memorial tree
Planting a tree is an excellent way to pay your respects, offer grievance and remember your deceased loved one, while contributing to the environment simultaneously. Moreover, if the remains of the loved one are scattered over the sea or are buried at quite a distant location, it can be challenging to pay respects each time. Instead, by merely planting a tree, you establish a physical place where you can pay your respects and remember them.
Plant a memorial tree from ashes
Planting a tree from the ashes of your loved one is a favorite and meaningful way of honoring them. This not only formulates a living memorial but growing memorial as well. There is no restriction as to what tree should be planted, and instead, any tree or seed of desire can be determined.
During the memorial service, to honor and remember your loved one, all attendees are offered keepsake attached with thank you note saplings, in an environment-friendly burlap bag. The intention is to spread the love and respect for loved ones, far and wide.
Keepsake seed packets
Another favorite way of remembering the dear ones is by distributing the deceased’s favorite flower seeds in small packs, distributed to all attendees of the service. You can further customize it printing pictures of the loved ones over the cover.
Issued in the shape of a bookmark attached by desired shapes of blooming seeds, such recollection allows attendees to plant flowers in memory while keeping with them bookmarks imprinted with unconditional quotes.
