Creating a service that will help mourners remember what is special and unique about their loved one can be one of the more challenging aspects of a funeral service. It may feel like a lot of pressure is on you as the planner to make sure everything is “just so” and really represents the dearly departed. At Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery, we work closely with families to offer unique funeral options to fit every style, personality and background.
Memorial Photos and Videos
Everyone has special memories of a loved one who has passed, and a visual trigger such as a photo or video snippet can really help you remember all of the wonderful times that you enjoyed together. Simply the process of gathering together special family photos can be quite cathartic, as it gives you all the opportunity to look in places you may not have been lately to find albums and take the time to go through them together. Even better, after the service you’ll be able to offer a set of photos and videos to any family member who would like one, creating a unique remembrance video that will be enjoyed for years.
Flying to the Heavens
One of the most moving and memorable funeral options is having a release of white doves at the graveside. This last tribute to the dearly departed signifies love, peace, innocence, hope and the Holy Spirit and can be incredibly soothing to families in their grief. The feeling of hope that comes with the flight of the stunning birds can continue throughout the difficult days and weeks to come.
