3 Professional Tips for Planning a Memorial Service, Ewa, Hawaii

While it can be difficult to deal with the loss of a loved one, one of the best ways to attain closure is by planning a memorial service. These ceremonies provide the perfect opportunity for relatives to gather in honor of a life well-lived and share fond personal memories.

After years of supplying professional funeral planning services to families throughout Oahu, Leeward Funeral Home of Pearl City, HI, understands the importance of these ceremonies. Below, they discuss three tips for organizing a memorable celebration of life.

3 Tips for Planning a Dignified Memorial Service

Choose a Location

memorial serviceOne of the first aspects to consider when planning a memorial service is the location. Did the deceased have close connections to their hometown? Was there a special place within the area where they enjoyed spending their free time? Narrowing down your options will give you an idea of how much space you have to work with, as well as other information to guide upcoming decisions.

Create an Order of Service

Memorial services aren’t as traditional as funerals. They don’t include a casket viewing, and they aren’t as strict regarding structure. This means families have more freedom to create a program that reflects the unique personality of the deceased and celebrates the life they lived. You can do this by sharing personal stories or incorporating unique family traditions into the service.

Construct a Display

In some cases, you may want to feature a display during the memorial service. It could be a collection of photographs that portray memorable moments in your loved one’s life, or a series of items that represent the activities they enjoyed. Whatever you decide on, make sure to enlist the help of your relatives to construct this special presentation.
