Values To Having Funeral Service Program

The memorial services are the perfect opportunity for the deceased's loved ones to comfort each other and to bid farewell to their friend, relative or associate who has passed on. These events can take many forms as influenced by regional, religious, or even personal traditions and wishes. Presenting each attendee with a funeral program will make sure they know what to expect.

This handout may be a couple of pages long or it may simply be a single sheet. It should always contain at least the most basic information about the honoree, such as their complete name, dates of both birth and death, as well as the location and time of the service. Most people also opt to include a favorite picture of the deceased on the cover.

The inside of the document will provide the order of proceedings from start to finish. Each song that is played, passage or poem that is read, should also have their author identified along with the name of who will be presenting them. Sometimes the family chooses to include a copy of the obituary so that all interested guests will have a copy.

This order of service helps the minister or officiant maintain control over the event's flow, keeping everything on time. This is also an effective way for attendees to physically see what is scheduled to happen next. Since the details of each tribute will be listed, it allows mourners to revisit any tributes they found especially comforting.

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 plenty of reasons for having a funeral program available for guests. Each person will have access to the flow of proceedings as well as the personal details of the deceased. It may also serve as a keepsake to the memory of a loved one lost.
