Making Funerals More Personal
You may have seen the latest TV ads from a national funeral home chain. The spots feature a motorcycle-themed funeral, a lap around a track for an auto racing fan, and disco party for a dance lover. These commercials are examples of some very unique final farewells and highlight a new focus on creating highly personalized funerals and memorial services.
Without a doubt, creating custom end-of-life ceremonies is one of the hottest trends in the funeral industry. We think that's a great thing since one of the main reasons to have a funeral is to give our friends and family the chance to show their love and respect one last time. There's no better way to do that than to let them share some of the things that make you unique.
Creating a memorial ceremony that doesn't follow a traditional model requires some planning. The best way to make it a true reflection of your unique life is for you to be involved in the plan. You’ll also be giving a great gift to your loved ones since it won't be left to them to guess at what you would want.
There are many ways to create a personalized funeral. Among the most common ways is to include videos, photos, or special music in the ceremony, but there is no right or wrong way. In the end, it's entirely up to you. There is no reason why you can't have any kind of ceremony you want.
