Have the Talk of a Lifetime.

How to create a personal, unique service

If you have attended a funeral recently, you may have seen a collage of photographs, a memorial video tribute, personal items of the deceased on display, special mementos, storytelling from close friends or family, special life tribute ceremonies, balloon releases or any other number of unique burial or cremation services. All of this is done to help make the funeral more personal, to illustrate that which was unique about the person’s life, and to help those who have lost someone special begin to heal.

To help you begin the process of planning a unique tribute, think of your answers to the following questions:

  • What could your loved one do better than anyone else?
  • When you think of your loved one, what do you think of?
  • What were your loved one’s hobbies or special interests?
  • What were some of your fondest memories of your loved one?
  • What was your loved one passionate about?

The answers to these and similar questions will help you pinpoint those qualities and activities that are most identifiable with your loved one. Asking can be difficult too. To spark the conversation, learn more about how to Have the Talk of a Lifetime.
