What is a Memorial Service?
Unlike a traditional funeral, a memorial service is a gathering where a casket is not present (although the urn with the cremated remains may be on display). A memorial service program can be held weeks or even months after the death.
A memorial service does not have to be in a Houston funeral home. It can be held in a church, community hall, or somewhere of importance to the deceased and family. There is usually music, selected readings, and a eulogy. When making memorial arrangements, the ceremony can be further personalized as a celebration-of-life.
Memorial Service Ideas
Our experience has shown us that many of today's families want more than a traditional funeral home reception. This can be done by bringing more of the personality and lifestyle of the deceased into the arrangements. By displaying photographs or staging the event around a favorite pastime, memorial services can become more personal and meaningful.
If a personalized memorial service suits the needs of your family, we suggest you consider the following questions:
What did your loved one like to do?
What was he or she like as an individual?
What was your loved one’s profession and how did that shape his or her life?
Was your loved one spiritual?
Was he or she proud of his or her cultural or ethnic heritage?
