If you’re unable to have a service for your loved one, or if it will be delayed, it may be difficult to accept that you will be limited in your ability to invite others to pay their respects and support you immediately following your loss. However, it’s never too late to honor the life of your loved one and there are many options to do so in the future, once it is again safe for family and friends to gather. You can start planning at any time, either for a traditional memorial service or for smaller memorial gatherings with friends and family.
