MUSIC

Every life has a soundtrack

Music can evoke memories of vacations and road trips, first dates and weddings, religious ceremonies and celebrations. When planning a funeral, consider how live and recorded music, memorial photos and videos can set the tone and help tell your story. Whether you want timeless Christian hymns or a playlist of rock anthems, write them down in your planning guide and share them with your family to ensure your wishes are known.

FLOWERS

Flowers add to a memorable story—floral arrangements in teapots, watering cans, cowboy boots, coffee cups and more. Consider alternatives to flowers—an avid camper or outdoorsperson might be remembered with small sapling centerpieces wrapped in a burlap sack, where a arrangements of greenery, fresh fruits or vegetables could be displayed alongside personal momentos and photographs.

Tell a beautiful story

ATTIRE

What people wear sets the tone for a funeral or celebration of life. Wearing large derby-style hats for a horse-racing enthusiast can create a memorable service. Jerseys uniforms and colors of a beloved sports team are also a way to personalize a service. Or tropical shirts for a luau or barbeque can make the event more casual and festive. Requests for certain attire can be made in the online obituary, along with details of the service time and location. 

Tell a story before you even speak

REMEMBRANCE

Personal preference, religious customs and family traditions influence the kind of final resting place you might choose. Options may include traditional cemetery space near a cross or monuments and sculptures of Christian and Catholic significance, cemetery sections dedicated to Veterans or people of Jewish or Muslim faith and space with beautiful panoramic, mountain or water feature views. Memorialization options also exist for those choosing cremation, including burial, columbaria niche, memorial bench, cremation garden and scattering. Alternatively, you might customize your memorial space with a private family estate. 

Plan a peaceful place for reflection 

DECOR AND MEMENTOS

Transform a memorial service into a tropical paradise, backyard barbeque or biker rally. From cooking to traveling, running to reading, acting to origami, there are endless ways to tell a special story. For a golfing enthusiast, display his or her golf bag—clubs and all—and give out personalized golf balls to guests. Place a world-class quilter’s cherished works on display. Or, if gardening was a passion, decorate the service with flowers and plants, and hand out personalized seed packets for guests to take home in remembrance.

SPEECH

Offer remembrance and closure

A well-crafted eulogy is one way to remember how special someone was. Writing and delivering a eulogy is one of the most difficult things we may be asked to do, but as you share memories, your Dignity Memorial professional can help create a moving and personalized service shaped by their interests and personality. From inspirational quotes to scripture readings, sayings to prayers, special words can be incorporated into the service and become touching parts of a remembrance.
