When first facing the death of a loved one, it may seem easier to just quickly make funeral services arrangements with as little thought as possible you can move on. However, studies have shown that meaningful, thoughtful funeral services, whether held at a funeral home in Grand Junction, CO or elsewhere, can actually help the grieving process.
Funeral services are an important part of healing. They help honor the deceased’s life, and aid the living in recognizing and celebrating that life. Mental health professionals and grief specialists alike agree that meaningful funeral services help people cope, accept, and eventually move past the loss of a family member or loved one. Furthermore, properly planned and executed meaningful funeral services provide an opportunity for families and friends to express feelings, connect with one another, and move towards healing as a unit.
People always say that relationships are the most important part of life, so the best way to have a meaningful funeral service is to have focus on the relationships the deceased had with friends and family. Take a moment to remember special events, fond memories, or everyday moments that embody what made the deceased’s relationships special. Use these memories to enhance your funeral services so they can best honor the deceased. They can serve as inspiration for special and personalized funeral attributes.
Many funeral homes also offer a range of services to help you make sure your deceased loved one has a respectful, personalized and memorable funeral. Some of these services include:
- Tribute Video – Modern technology offers a unique way to remember the deceased. Take your home videos, photographs and memoires and create an especially unique tribute video. Put in graphics and music for even more personalization.
- Memorial Website – Make the meaningful funeral services accessible to the world with a memorial website. Websites are beautiful and useful. They help connect family, friends and acquaintances online for easy funeral announcements and communication. They also can display the video, obituary, photos and more online so everyone has easy access long after the funeral is over.
- Customized Prints – Order customized prints for the funeral. These prints range from photo collages and blown up portraits to bookmarks, programs, boards and even books. Put special quotes, Bible verses, poems or artwork on the prints. You can also print out the obituary, or even the deceased’s favorite sayings. The prints serve as decoration for the funeral, and can be taken home by hosts and guests as keepsakes.
