If you are going to have cremation services in Fairview, TN for a loved one who has passed on, all you need is a cremation package. You can then make decisions as to how you are going to move forward with your loved one’s memorial service and final resting place. One of the most popular things to do as you consider final resting options is to scatter a loved one’s remains. If that’s what you land as the right option for your loved one and the rest of your family, here are some tips that can help with that process.

Consider Weather Conditions

You are going to want to consider the weather conditions when you think about scattering ashes. You don’t want to be out when it’s rainy or cold, for example, or you might want to avoid a windy day. Some of those things aren’t things you can work around because you never know what is going to happen with the weather. But you can choose a time of the year that might work well based on the temperature averages and what the weather is usually like during those seasons.

Choose A Nice Location

The location in which you scatter your loved one’s ashes is going to be very important to you, when the scattering happens and when you visit that location in the future. You are going to want somewhere that your loved one would be comfortable and would appreciate being. It should also be a location that is accessible to you if you want to visit them again later as well. The location should feel peaceful to you and your loved one.

Organize A Ceremony

You don’t have to do anything large for the ash scattering, but you might want to think about what you want to do for the ceremony so you are prepared. Do you want one person to say a few words? Several people to share stories? Do you want someone to do a reading or everyone to sing a song together? Those things take a little thought and planning and you will want to organize things in advance.

Have An Urn/Scattering Tube

You can use the simple container that the cremation provider will give you with any cremation package you choose, but you could also consider an urn that is more unique and personal. You could also get a scattering tube for your loved one. The scattering tube is another container that will make it easier to scatter your loved one’s ashes when the time comes. If you are certain you will scatter the ashes, a tube might be the way to go. Otherwise, any container can work.

If you are trying to decide what you want your loved one would want for their final resting place after cremation services in Fairview, TN, scattering their ashes might feel like the right fit. You can talk to the professionals about the option and make other decisions as you move forward with this choice or any other.
