funeral homes in Roslyn, NYThis is a trying time in our country and for much of the rest of the world. Just because everything has seemed to stop around us doesn’t mean that absolutely everything has actually ceased to happen. In fact, death can still happen whether stores and parks are open or not. And if you find yourself in the situation where you have to contact funeral homes in Roslyn, NY in order to arrange final services, it can be even harder than in regular times.

It’s never easy to lose a loved one, but normally, you would be able to organize services in order to honor that person’s memory. With all of the safety regulations and restrictions today, you can only gather with (at most) 10 people at a time. That’s no idea for most memorials or funerals. How can you give your loved one the service they deserve in today’s times? Here are a few ideas:

Go With Direct Cremation And Save Services

One of the benefits of direct cremation is that you will be able to have the cremation done right away, so your loved one is cared for, but you can save their final services for any time in the future that you’d like. It’s easy enough to put things off because there is no longer a timeline on the services. If you really want all of your family members and friends to have the chance to gather and say goodbye, you can wait to have those services once things calm down a bit, and regulations relax.

Present Services Virtually

If you really want a traditional funeral for your loved one, or you just don’t want to wait on having their services, you can move forward with a few select, close family members present. The rest of your family and friends can watch the service virtually. There are a number of ways to do that. You could have a zoom meeting. You could present the service in a private group on Facebook live. You could facetime with those who have iPhones. The funeral home might also have ideas and options to consider. You could also consider recording the services and then distributing DVDs to family members who might not have internet options readily available.

These times are not ideal and there’s never a ‘good time’ to lose someone you love. You will find that any time you are in a tough situation, you simply have to make the best with what you have to work with. The professionals at Roslyn Heights Funeral Home will help you do just that. We understand what you are going through and we have helped others through similar circumstances in these trying times.
