When a loved one has passed, it can often be helpful to look back on his or her life. Remembering your loved one’s most cherished moments can give you an opportunity to both celebrate his or her life while also mourning your loss. Here are some ideas for honoring your loved one in a respectful way.
Tribute Videos A tribute video is a great way to honor your loved one’s life. Tribute videos often include a set of family photos that are elegantly and tastefully integrated with music and various other graphics. The effect is an emotive and respectful video that pays tribute to the deceased. In addition to being able to hold on to the video after the service, you can also obtain copies for family and friends.
Personalized Printing Personalized printing allows you to incorporate your favorite photos or memories of your loved one on the funeral service program, invitation, and prayer cards. In addition to giving your guests a unique keepsake from the ceremony, personalized printing is also a great way to create a personal, intimate ceremony.
Live Funeral Webcasting Ideally a funeral service should include all of the deceased’s friends and family. Unfortunately, this is often impossible due to conflicts and unforeseen circumstances. For example, older relatives are sometimes not able to make a funeral service because of health issues. Live funeral webcasting is a wonderful way to allow family and friends to watch the funeral service remotely. When you have a live webcast, the funeral service video can also archived and downloaded to DVD for future viewing.
When you plan a funeral, a funeral director will work with you to find the best way to honor your loved one.

It has been rightly said that funerals are for the living. Above all, a funeral provides an opportunity for you and your friends and family to mourn the loss of a loved one. The last thing you need is to be overwhelmed by stress as you try to plan a funeral. Understanding the funeral planning process can help you focus on what really matters. Here are some answers to some of the questions you may have about planning a funeral.
What Type of Funeral Service Should I Have? This is a question that only you and your family can answer. Unless the deceased had previously specified his or her preferred type of service, the choice of funeral service is up to the family. Usually, funeral services are held at a place of worship or a family home. The practices and rituals of each funeral service differ based on the beliefs of the family. While some families prefer larger services, other families decide to have intimate, private affairs.
Can I Personalize a Funeral Service? Although a funeral service is a time for mourning, it’s also an opportunity to celebrate the life of the deceased and remember his or her life. Personalizing a funeral service is a wonderful way to recall your loved one’s most cherished moments.
What Do Funeral Directors Do? Funeral directors have a number of roles. Most importantly, they act as administrators and caregivers. In regards to their administrative duties, funeral directors make all of the necessary arrangements for your funeral service. From completing paperwork to transporting the body, funeral directors work hard to make sure that you can focus on mourning along with your loved ones.
The questions above are just a small sample of the information available from your local funeral director.
