Unique Memorial Service Ideas

When a loved one passes away, the first thing that comes to mind are fond memories of that person’s life. Everything that made them the unique person you loved seems to come into absolute clarity. Because of this, a lot of people want to make sure that the funeral service for their loved one contains some kind of memorial. However, coming up with original memorial service ideas for honoring your dearly departed can be difficult. Here are some unique memorial service ideas so that your loved one is remembered in the way they deserve to be.

Memorial Service Ideas

Display Collections

Lots of people today are collectors. These collections are a reflection of their passions in life and, as such, are a great memorial for the same person in death. If your loved one was a collector of photo albums, comic books or baseball cards, prominently displaying these items at their funeral service is a great way for people to get a sense of who they were.

A Slideshow with Their Favorite Music

People generally think of funerals as a very sad time, and for very good reasons. But they can also be a celebration of life, which is why a photo slideshow is a great memorial service idea. A slideshow featuring the highlights of the life of the departed is a great way to remember happier times—especially if the slideshow is accompanied by some of your loved one’s favorite songs.
