A Meaningful Memorial Service
Have you ever attended a funeral of someone you didn’t know, and left there feeling like you knew the person? If so, you attended a meaningful memorial service, one that truly reflects the life a person lived. A meaningful memorial service celebrates one’s accomplishments and contributions, chronicles milestones in their life, highlights the person’s personality and special talents, and celebrates the way the person touched the lives of those around him or her.
A memorial service is one that is held to honor a deceased loved one. Friends, family, neighbors, acquaintances, co-workers and others, attend the memorial service to show their respects, express their sympathy and to show their support for the dear departed’s loved ones. Prayers, favorite scriptures and songs, are selected to set a soothing tone. Friends and family give remarks to share the memorable times they had together. The Minister and others on program provide comfort and hope through the Word, prayer and encouraging words.
Most funerals take place within 4-7 days after a person passes away. This doesn’t give family and friends much time to plan. Several people and businesses are involved in coordinating the service: your Funeral Director, Minister, closest family and friends, Newspaper Representative, Musician, Escort service, Printer, Florist, Limousine companies, Cemetery/Crematory Representative, Military Representative, etc… A lot of decisions have to be made in a short period of time. Merchandise, such as casket, vault, programs, flowers, urns, markers, etc… have to be selected. Time should be taken to select items that represent the likes and lifestyle of the deceased person. Pre-Need Funeral planning, planning one’s services in advance, can help you accomplish this best.
The more the service reflects the life the person lived, the more meaningful and memorable it will be.
Losing a loved one is truly a difficult and painful time in our lives. A meaningful memorial service can help give us peace of mind, and leave us feeling hopeful and thankful that the person crossed our path. One such service can also give us closure, acknowledging that the person left a legacy of a fruitful and meaningful life.
