Personalizing a funeral requires some thought, whether you are planning your own service in advance or for a loved one. Many items, such as photos or mementos, may be brought from home to display at the service, while other items may be selected at the funeral home.
The options for customizing a tribute are endless. You might choose a theme based on the interests of the deceased, such as hobbies, music, favorite color, beloved team, or a branch of the military. Interest areas such as sports, horses, or careers, such as farming or over-the-road trucking, make wonderful ideas for a theme.
Potential options for personalizing your services include:
Video tribute—We were the first funeral home in the area to offer this option! We employ a skilled professional to create a high quality memorial that may be run on a continuous loop throughout the visitation or memorial service; because the video is created by a professional company, it is copy written and additional copies can be purchased through Hager & Cundiff Funeral Home.
Photo collages, albums, and framed photography—A photographic memorial can be a focal point for the visitation or memorial service.
Personal interest items—An exhibit of the person’s skills or hobbies is often central to a visitation or memorial service.
Decorative casket panels and casket engraving
Other options for personalizing include music to set the tone and readings such as scriptures or eulogies. Pall bearers or other participants add a personal touch and can point to an important area of the person’s life, such as members of a team or organization.
