Memorial Services

A memorial service is unlike a traditional funeral in that the casketed remains are not present. The urn that contains the loved one’s ashes may be displayed at a memorial service, which can occur weeks or months after the passing.

A memorial service can take place in a funeral home, a place of religious worship, a community hall, restaurant, park, beach or some other location that held significance to the departed and his or her family. Typically, there is musical accompaniment, reading selections and a eulogy. A celebration of life is an even more personalized form of a memorial service.

Ideas for a Memorial Service

After serving many families, we have come to see that modern families desire more than what is provided by a traditional funeral. This can be accommodated by infusing more of the lifestyle and personality of the deceased into the tribute. A family may set up pictures or theme the event on a favorite hobby of the departed, making the memorial service more individualized and meaningful.

If you feel that a personalized memorial service would benefit you and your family most, please ask yourself:

What did your loved one enjoy doing?
What was your loved one like as a person?
What did he or she do in terms of employment, and how did that influence their life?
Was spirituality important to your loved one?
Did he or she take pride in their culture or ethnicity?

The answers to the above questions will help us to assist you in crafting a proper tribute for your loved one.
