3 Tips on Personalizing a Loved One’s Memorial Service

Video Tributes

A tribute video is a dynamic and compelling way to celebrate a person’s life, and as a result, it is becoming more and more common at many funeral services. Many funeral homes provide audio visual equipment to allow you to play a tribute video for guests as they arrive to pay their respects. You can also make copies of the video and distribute them to friends and family to keep the cherished memory of your loved one alive.

Music Selection

Choose songs that the departed loved, or even play original works if the person was musically inclined. Guests will enjoy getting to know this side of the deceased, and it can also be comforting to those who knew the person intimately.

Ask Attendees to Share Memories

Another great option for creating a more intimate funeral service is requesting that attendees share some memories of the departed. This can provide a fascinating look into the life of the person who passed away, while also allowing friends and family to share cherished memories of someone they loved. Anecdotes can be humorous, sad, moving, or all three at the same time.
