Memorial Service Ideas & Celebration of Life Resources

If someone you loved has recently passed away, we want to start by saying how sorry we are. We offer you our sincerest condolences. Sisto Funeral Home, Inc. understands that this is a very hard time for you and your family and we want you to know that we are here to help you in any way we can.

Looking for memorial service ideas?

Memorial Service Ideas Celebration of LifeIf you’ve been considering a memorial service for your loved one there is a lot to think about and plan for.  First of all, a memorial service is a service without the body present, which varies depending on the wishes of the deceased, the family’s wishes, and religious affiliations. Your family might prefer a public visitation where anyone can come and pay their respects, or they might want a private graveside service with a memorial service held at the funeral home after.

Since the body is not present at the memorial service or celebration of life, it can take place either before or after burial. You also have the ability to hold a memorial service instead of a funeral or in addition to a funeral. For example, you could have a funeral in the town where the deceased died and then a memorial service in the town where he/she grew up.

Many families are choosing to have a memorial service or celebration of life instead of a funeral because it allows them to customize the service and honor the life of their loved one in a way that is unique to them.

Sisto Funeral Home, Inc. wants to make sure that you have lots of memorial service ideas, so we have put together a list of things for you to consider.

●        Display photos in a unique way
●        Have the memorial service outdoors
●        Serve the deceased’s favorite food and/or beverage
●        Make a memory pillow (or quilt) from your loved one’s clothing
●        Set up a memorial stone station, where guests write memories onto stones with permanent marker and put them into a vase
