3 Ideas for a Meaningful Funeral Service, Colchester, Connecticut

When planning a funeral service, you want it to reflect the spirit of the deceased. With the help of a funeral director, you can plan one that memorializes your loved one respectfully and beautifully. If you’re struggling to find meaningful ways to personalize the service, here are a few ideas.

How to Plan a Heartfelt Funeral 

1. Personalized Music

There are many traditional hymns or emotional pieces of music that are commonly used during funeral services. But those aren’t your only options. Whether your loved one was a dedicated rock and roller, a passionate country music fan, or a lover of the blues, playing their favorite music during the service adds a personal touch. If you have musically inclined family members or friends, have them perform one of your loved one’s favorite songs live.

2. Memory Book

A simple memory book placed at the entrance of the funeral location will allow you to collect meaningful memories from friends and family. The book will become a treasured possession that will be cherished for years to come. 

3. Memorial Slideshow

Creating a slideshow of pictures and videos of your loved one can be a beautiful tribute during a funeral. Gather materials from family and friends so everyone can be reminded of the beautiful memories they’ve created with the deceased. Find music that held meaning to your loved one to use in the slideshow.
