Do you wish to send someone who passed a kind goodbye in the most memorable way? For those who have lost a loved one, a memorial service can provide a chance to say farewell and begin the mourning process with fellow friends and family. Religious traditions have historically served as a foundation for preparing funeral traditions. And while religion still plays a significant role, many individuals now want to honor the person’s life in a non-religious way.
Adding a personal touch to a memorial service allows family and friends to gather not only to grieve the loss of a loved one but also to laugh, cry, and share memories. Letting them leave with a sense of hope and inspiration from the legacy that the person left.
Memorial services are cathartic and healing.
People that personalize a memorial service can channel their love and pain into something meaningful for themselves and those close to the person who passed. Additionally, it’s an opportunity to arrange a celebration in honor of someone’s life. It’s through memorial services that we may begin the healing process and find some kind of closure.
Talk to family and friends.
Without a doubt, you’re already thinking about your loved one. While you’re thinking about them, contemplate what it was about them that made them special. Who they were, what they liked, what made them unique, and most importantly, what would they want for their service? Take the time to seek input from other family members and friends.
Music is more powerful than we think.
Do you know your loved one’s music tastes? If this is the case, you should put up a playlist for the occasion. You may also ask friends and relatives for music recommendations if you’re stuck for ideas. If you’re handling most of the organizing, this is a fantastic way to develop a community around the memorial and relieve some stress. Depending on your taste and budget, you could also hire musicians, bands, or DJs.
Design the funeral program with friends and family.
Funeral programs are often given out at the service. When you want to personalize a memorial, these are excellent places to start. Photos, poetry, music, dances, stories, scriptures, and quotes can all give homage to and highlight the deceased’s character. Many funeral program templates are available online for people who like to do things on their own. You can also work with your funeral director to create the program.
