Family left behind matters! You may feel having a memorial service seems like insignificant ceremonies, in reality, they’re important to those left behind. To your family, you matter, you are important. Think back about the days, when as a young parent or grandparent, how many times you held and comforted your loved ones when sick or hurt. When they sat on your lap and you sang to them, when you made them smile, giggle, and laugh. Precious memories you experienced together and have treasured all the days of your life.
Memorial services are exactly that. To enable loved ones to honor your life and cherish special moments and memories they hold dear. One final time – your family and loved ones, in their private memories of you, will remember and feel the comfort of your warm hugs, hear your caring voice and feel your hand in theirs. In their pain, their grieving, and sadness, one final time – even in death, you can bring comfort and give them strength to carry on. Allow them to honor the person who gave them life, on perhaps one of their most difficult days in their lives.
