What Unique Memorials Have Funeral Homes Seen?
When someone special passes on, those who are left behind are compelled to honor that life in some way. Many people turn to funeral homes in Las Vegas, NV and have funerals or memorial services to honor their loved one. Those are great services to get closure over the death and allow people to mourn and gather in that person’s honor. However, funeral homes have seen a lot of unique memorials over their years of service as well. Here are a few things funeral homes have seen in the past that you might want to utilize for your own loved one’s services.
While you can certainly plan recorded music or have someone play the piano or organ lightly in the background, there’s something cathartic about live music as well. Funeral homes have seen many singers perform at services for people who have passed on. The singers could be someone in your family or even a local favorite. There are other forms of live music as well. Perhaps you know someone who plays the acoustic guitar, the flute, or another instrument your loved one appreciated. There’s no shortage of musical options and live music is unique and can really add to a memorial service.
It’s hard to let go of someone you love, but releasing something into the sky can help you capture the idea of letting the person move on as you move on to a new normal yourself. You could release balloons and even include messages inside them that you want to pass along to your loved one. Some families blow bubbles and watch them float away to bring in the child-like nature of their loved one. You could also light lanterns and release them at night for a fantastic flowing send-off. There are many other ways and guests can release items all at once or one by one after sharing a story or memory.
Funeral homes have also seen their fair share of memorial videos through the various services they have hosted. Videos can be short and to the point or they can be longer and include video clips, lots of pictures, and even interviews of family memories. If you don’t know how to create a video, or aren't sure what to include, the funeral home can help advise you on that aspect of the service.
