A Memorial service is a perfect place and time to celebrate the life of your loved one. Although death is a sorrowful event, the service needn’t be all grim and gloomy. It should be a reflection of your love and respect for the deceased person. We, at Ocean County Cremation, understand how important this can be for the deceased’s family and friends. Here is some information on how personalizing a memorial service works:

Make It Interactive

It is important to make the funeral a place where all the people close to the decedent share their memories. Talking to your friends and sharing anecdotes is a great way to personalize and reminisce. Making it an interactive zone helps everyone share their grief.

Incorporate Memorabilia

Another great way to add a personal touch to the ceremony is to include personal memorabilia of the loved one. This can be instruments that they played or their journals and diaries.  It’s an act of celebrating the person’s life through it. Some people plant trees in the name of the deceased as well.

Pay Tribute

You can ask people close to the person to dedicate a eulogy to them. You can also ask them to display their art as a tribute to the person’s life. This can be playing an instrument, making a painting or dedicating a poem. This involves people in celebrating the life of the person even more.

Involve Loved Ones

Ask everyone close to the deceased to give their two cents on how to make the service even more personal and heartfelt. Involving different people from a person’s life together is a way of honoring their life collaboratively.

Personalizing a memorial service is a good way to add uniqueness to the ceremony. We at Ocean County Cremation, offer you all the services pertaining to personalizing your funeral service. For more information contact us today.
