5 Ideas for a Meaningful Memorial Service

Published: April 19, 2021

Losing someone close to your heart is a painful experience, but it is also a time to reflect on how deeply your loved one has touched your life. If you have recently lost someone in death, a well-planned memorial service can honor the memories you have, whether you have opted for cremation or not.

Here are some ideas that can help you create a meaningful memorial service as you celebrate a life well-lived.

Photo Tribute

What better way to relive your memories with your loved one than with a photo tribute? Most families who opt for cremation without the traditional viewing find that a tribute is also the best way to tell the story of their loved one.

If you wish to have a photo tribute for a loved one’s funeral, you can speak with a funeral professional who can help create a fitting tribute on your behalf.

Video Presentation

If you are looking for an alternative to a photo tribute, why not prepare a video presentation instead? It’s a great way to share your memories of your loved one while re-telling the past in a creative way.

Customized Headstones and Memorials

Regardless of whether you’ve opted for cremation or a traditional funeral service, you can opt to memorialize a loved one with a customized headstone made of granite, one of the most durable rock types on earth. The distinctive, timeless beauty of granite and its ability to weather the seasons make it the perfect material for your loved one’s memorial. Each granite piece is unique in color, texture, and tone — a testament to the unique life your loved one has lived.

Choose from our wide variety of headstones and memorials and create a legacy for your loved one, one that would last throughout generations.

Personalized Urns

Keep your loved one’s cremated remains in an urn that would best reflect the life he or she has lived. Cremation urns come in different shapes and sizes and are commonly made of granite, metal, or marble. They can also come in the form of personalized locket urns, which contain a small portion of your loved one’s cremated remains for you to carry close to your heart.
