When you lose a loved one you have to make a lot of choice about the type of funeral they will have. If you choose to have cremation services you will also want to consider who you will invite to these services. You may feel like some people won’t be able to see the obituary or might miss it. In this case, it won’t hurt to send out an invite. If you are trying to decide who to invite to the cremation services in Destrehan, LA, you may want to keep some of these tips and suggestions in mind.
Make sure you invite your loved one’s family to the services however you decide. In most cases, you can assume that the family will be some of the first people to hear about the passing of your loved one, but there’s still a chance that some of them did not get all the info about it. You can reach out to everyone in your family to ask them to share the news of the death of your loved one with each other and make sure everyone they talk to knows about the cremation arrangements.
Your loved one probably had a lot of friends and you might not think that you will be able to make contact with all of them about the service. You can send them a link to the website where you have posted the obituary or just a paper invitation. If you aren’t sure of how to contact them, you can check online to find current addresses and phone numbers or you can check their social media pages to see if you can contact them that way instead of using a website to track them down and trying to mail out invitations to them.
Coworkers can easily become friends and if your loved one was close to the people they worked with, you will want to invite them to the cremation. You can find past coworkers by checking with the office or warehouse where they worked and making arrangements to get the info to them. You can also send out an email to an office manager or someone within the system who will be able to send out a mass email that will make its way to everyone in the company.
