Today, many individuals believe that crying and strolling around morosely when a loved one dies is unnecessary. If someone close to you lived a full life and was a highly positive individual, you want to preserve their memory and associate it with joyful memories. We at George Darte Funeral Home have seen that when a loved one passes away, people look for unique ways to plan a funeral ceremony; here are a few ideas to consider:

1. Donate Some Books

If the decedent was a voracious reader, they might have left behind a sizable book collection. Additionally, you don't always have the space in your home to store all of those books. You can pay tribute to the person's memory by giving out these books at the funeral service, providing participants with a memento to cherish.

2. Select a Casket That is Uniquely Yours

You can commemorate your loved one's life and passions by customizing their casket. Today, many casket manufacturers are becoming more inventive, offering patterned, colourful caskets decorated with floral, musical, or sports theme designs, pets, and national flags, among other embellishments. Certain manufacturers will even imprint a customized image on the casket. Additionally, you can allow family and friends to personalize the casket with notes or artwork.

3. Customization of Service Booklets

These service books are frequently distributed at numerous funerals. They are often fairly basic and may include only a single photo on their cover. However, you can make use of this opportunity to be creative by placing a collage of many photographs of the individual on the ceremony booklet and adding captions, for example.
