Understanding Memorial Services
Nowadays many families are seeking to hold a spiritual service that focuses less on religion and more on personalizing a celebration of the deceased’s life. A memorial service is a unique celebration that allows your family to say goodbye to the deceased the way you want. Unlike a traditional service that includes certain readings and prayers, a memorial service is completely custom with no two being the same.
When you are planning a memorial service, you should remember that this is an opportunity to both recognize the death of your loved one and celebrate their life. By planning a memorial service around your loved one’s unique tastes, you can pay tribute to them and the way they lived their life.
Some of the important details you can select include the music that will be played during the event, photos or videos that will be displayed, what kind of décor will decorate the venue and what will occur during the service. Many families often elect to include a poem or reading prior to who will speak or deliver a eulogy.
Again, the great thing about a memorial service is that it is entirely up to you. If you would rather forego certain aspects of a traditional service, they do not have to be included. Together, our caring staff will work alongside you to help you plan a memorial service that commemorates your loved one’s life and allow your friends and family to gather and say goodbye.
