Are you looking for some cool funeral ideas that will turn the funeral you are planning into a memorable celebration of life?
1. Use Memory Stones to Create a Special Tribute
Use memory stones as a guest book. At the memorial service friends and family are invited to write on the memory stones. You can then keep the stones and remember the tributes people made to your loved one. The memory stones would be nice to add to the base of a plant in your home or garden. It’s a beautiful way to keep the memory of the departed alive. You can find memorial memory stones here.
2. Cool Funeral Idea, A Creative Memorial Balloon Release
Find a photo of each year from your loved one’s life and attach it to a balloon. Display the balloon at the celebration of life. Friends and family will look at the photos and reminisce. At the end of the service family and friends are invited to take a balloon and photo and release the balloon (they are welcome to remove the photo and hold onto it as a special keepsake).
3. Cool Funeral idea, Personalize the service with music
Did your loved one have a favorite musician or band that they listened to and perhaps saw in concert? If so, you may want to listen to some of that artist’s songs and see if you can pick out lyrics that you know resonated with the departed. I have a good friend who is a big Tom Petty fan so these lyrics would be perfect,
“You and I will meet again, When we’re least expecting it, One day in some far off place, I will recognize your face, I won’t say goodbye my friend, For you and I will meet again”. Tom Petty
Consider using the lyrics on memorial cards or bookmarks. You could also use the lyrics on a funeral program.
