Funeral Program Has Benefits

A memorial service is a chance for relatives, associates and friends to say a final farewell to one who has passed away. A lot of different influences can affect the way these events may flow. Having a funeral program printed and passed out will help all attendees understand and follow the proceedings.

This printout can be a single sheet of paper or a pamphlet of multiple pages. It will contain the honoree's full name, the dates of their birth and passing, and the details of when and where the services will be held. The deceased's photograph is also something most families choose to include on the product's cover.

The inside should contain a complete ordered listing, start to close, of how the service will proceed. For each passage, poem or song that is used as a tribute, the title, author and person who is performing it needs to be listed. It would also be a thoughtful gesture to have the obituary included as part of the publication.

Having a printed order of service helps the officiant to keep the proceedings flowing smoothly and in a timely fashion. It also provides an opportunity for those in attendance to follow along. Everyone will know what to expect as well as the details of any tributes performed during the event.

Aside from letting everyone know what to expect, these handouts often provide mourners with a sense of comfort and closure. It gives them a physical reminder of a very personal occasion. There is no wrong or right way to grieve, and for some, these mementos are key coping mechanisms.

There are multiple reasons why having an available funeral program available at the services is important. It not only pays homage to the deceased, but it helps those in attendance follow the proceedings. For many individuals, these handouts are keepsakes that assist them in coping with their own sense of loss.
