In today's society, mourning a loved one can happen in many different ways. You wish to honour the memory of a loved one who led a full life and greatly influenced yours so you can associate joyful memories with their name. When a loved one passes, many people search for unique ways to plan a funeral ceremony; here are some suggestions from Arbutus Funeral Service:

1. Give Away Books

If the deceased had a passion for reading, they might have left behind a sizable library. In addition, you may not always be able to store all of your books at home. You may commemorate the person's memory by distributing this book as a keepsake to the mourners at the burial service.

2. Choose a Custom Casket

Customizing the casket of a deceased loved one is a beautiful way to honour their life and hobbies. Patterned, brightly coloured caskets that include flowers, sports or music themes motifs, national symbols, or animal designs have become increasingly popular. Some businesses also provide the option of having a customized picture printed on the casket. You can ask loved ones and friends to add unique touches to the casket, such as handwritten notes or drawings.

3. Order of Service Booklet Personalization

Many funerals include the distribution of these service booklets as a standard part of the event. In most cases, a single image may be all that is on the cover. It's also an excellent opportunity to get imaginative and put together a collage of images, add captions and notes to it, for example.

These are just a few of the things you can do for a unique funeral service. You can discuss these things with your family and determine what works best. For information on our customized funeral services, feel free to call Arbutus Funeral Service and a funeral director will help you preplan a service if you need one.
