A Memorial Service Program is a subtle way of commemorating a loved one. There are a number of ways to honor a loved one, and a memorial service program is just one of them. You might also consider setting up some sort of permanent memorial to your loved one, such as a scholarship or endowment fund, or creating a tribute page on social media.
However, the best way to remember someone is with the help of friends and family through meaningful, shared memories. The most important thing is to do what feels right for you and your loved ones. You can also plan a funeral using zoom for your loved ones (if Covid 19 situation persists in your residential place). If you are wondering how to prepare a memorial service program, use these helpful tips.
Schedule Of Events
The sequentially written order of events in a funeral service program is called the Order Of Service. A funeral or memorial service program includes several events like delivering eulogies, music (memorial services may also include songs performed by a choir), offering prayers from a religious leader belonging to the deceased person’s faith.
Memorial Service Program's Cover
Memorial service program covers are usually made up of images. You can use a portrait or a collage of images of the deceased person (to provide a glimpse of their whole life through the cover). You can go for abstract images, like flowers, butterflies, or fields. The cover can also include the name, date of birth, and death of the deceased person.
Fonts Should Be Appropriate
You can choose simple easy-to-read fonts for the inside of the Memorial service program. While attractive Script Typefaces can be used sparingly, like for the title of the program and the name of the deceased person.
Set The Appropriate Tone
You can use plain white paper with black writing instead of bright paper to reflect the solemnity of the Memorial Service Program. You may use color in the cover image.
Personal Information Of The Departed
Personal information about the deceased person is included in the memorial ceremony program. Here are some of the things you can incorporate while planning a memorial service
- Include full name, nickname (if the person went by it), and maiden name (if applicable) of the departed.
- For the sake of future generations, record the time, date, and location of the memorial service or funeral. Also include the times of any burials and receptions that may be scheduled after the service.
- The names and relationships of the surviving family members of the departed.
- Information and stories related to education, employment, interests, talents of the deceased person.
- On behalf of the deceased, the family may ask mourners to donate to charity.
- The gratitude of the family members to those who attended the service.
After writing the program, have someone else read it and give their suggestions and check for typos, misspellings, and grammatical problems. You can request someone close to the deceased person to correct any inaccuracies or add anything that has been left out mistakenly.
Home printers may produce pixelated images and can also be unreliable when it comes to color. Most office supply stores and print companies can print programs of good quality at a reasonable price.
In the end, it is up to you what kind of program you want to make. The benefits of creating a shared experience between the families and friends of a lost loved one can bring comfort and peace during a difficult time of life. When you design the program, make sure that it tells the story of the deceased person’s life in a way that is fitting and expresses your feelings and the fact that you are missing someone dearly. This can be done by offering space for family members and friends to remember the deceased.
The departure of a loved one can cause misery but the situation becomes more complex for the family members if there is no Will or Estate Plan left by the departed. Legal procedures can burn out the family members mentally and physically. It is important for everyone to plan out their assets to ensure minimum chances of family disputes and mismanagement of assets.
