A funeral service should reflect each person’s unique life journey. With a few extra steps, you can make your loved one’s funeral as unique as they were. Shipman Funeral Home & Ceremony wants to help families plan services that not only honor the people who have passed, but also allow their family members and friends mourn and cope. With locations in Wagoner and Muskogee, OK, their funeral directors are available to help make appropriate arrangements to celebrate the life of your loved ones.
Funeral services are difficult to plan, let alone personalize. But the following three tips can help you plan a memorial service that your family can be proud of:
- Think Outside The Box: To make your loved one’s funeral service personal to their spirit and life, don’t be afraid to brainstorm. Consider what made them happiest; it could be their job, a hobby, or even a favorite vacation spot. Then think of how you can incorporate elements of their interests into the service. For instance, if a source of their pride came from a business they founded, with the help of a funeral director, you could arrange a procession of company vans to drive around the funeral service.
- Display Photos: One of the best ways to mourn the loss of a loved one is by connecting with their memories through photographs. Go through old photo albums to find pictures that best represent who your loved one was and what made them special. Once you’ve found the appropriate photos, decide on a method of arrangement. You could decorate the funeral home with your framed photos, enlarge a select few, create a collage, or organize a slideshow.
- Order A Floral Arrangement: A floral arrangement made of your loved one’s favorite flowers or colors is a touching way to pay tribute to their life. Ask a funeral director for local florists who will be able to help you create the floral design you desire.
Arrange a funeral service that’s personal to the life of your loved one. The funeral directors at Shipman Funeral Home & Crematory will be able to help you organize the service, seeing to every small detail.
