Losing a loved one is difficult, and planning a funeral or memorial service in the midst of your grief can be stressful and emotionally trying. The purpose of such a service, however, is to honor the life of the person who has passed on. If you make arrangements with a funeral home that is flexible and dedicated to providing professional and personalized services, you will find that there are a number of unique ways in which you can honor your loved one’s memory:
Release of a Dove
One great way to honor your loved one at his or her funeral is to have a close family member release a white dove at the end of the graveside service. Signaling your loved one’s ascent into heaven, transition into the afterlife, or departure from his or her body, this practice can serve as a comforting and serene tribute to the memory of your loved one.
If your loved one’s body is cremated rather than buried, a majestic urn ark can allow you to carry out the traditional procession of the pallbearers transporting your loved one’s remains.
For a constant reminder of the life, love, and moments that you will always remember your loved one for, you can have in memoriam wristbands created to be given out at the funeral service. You may choose to simply engrave your loved one’s name or add a brief personalized message.
Memorial Aerial Banner Tribute
To signify your loved one’s spiritual departure, you can arrange to have a memorial banner flown in the sky carrying a customized message honoring his or her life.
Skylawn Memorial Park in San Mateo can help you arrange to have one or more of these tributes carried out at your loved one’s funeral or memorial service. For dedicated and caring assistance in planning every aspect of a funeral, call (650) 349-4411.
