Death needn’t always be about grieving and mourning. You are bound to feel sorrow from the loss you have faced. But you can have a memorial or funeral service that is a celebration of the person’s life rather than a morose and somber event. This is a good way to focus on all the things the person stood for and embodied.

You can find new and unique ways to express your thoughts and feelings and conduct a special service for the dear departed soul. If you are wondering why it is important to personalize a funeral or memorial service, read on:

  • A Better Way To Express Your Feelings: The personal touches you add to the funeral or memorial service makes it more special. It’s a very touching way to express the affection and love you have for the person.
  • Create A Warm Environment: When you add some personal touches like some music or flowers that your loved one particularly liked, it creates a very warm environment and brings back fond memories of the decedent.
  • More Meaning: Even if you’re arranging a traditional service, personal touches make it more meaningful and relevant.

Keep It Simple

Once you and your family have decided that you want a more personal memorial or funeral service, it’s necessary to discuss your requirements and ideas with the funeral director. This will help ensure proper planning.

A personalized memorial or funeral service is a great way to pay tribute to your loved one. You can also encourage the rest of the family members to provide their inputs to create a truly special service, befitting the one you have lost.

Many families are now choosing to personalize memorial and funeral services to ensure that the essence of that person’s life shines through. If you want to know more about funeral options or want to plan a service, don’t hesitate to contact us at Thomas M. Gallagher Funeral Home for more information.
