Keepsakes and Mementos
To create a truly memorable service, funeral homes sometimes offer portable, personalized keepsake items for family members and friends.
Candles: Specially printed memorial candles may feature a photograph of the deceased and an appropriate poem or sentiment. Such candles are often displayed during the memorial service, and later taken home by family members and friends.
Ornaments: Personalized ornaments are versatile. They may be displayed year-round, or serve as a special seasonal reminder of a treasured loved one.
Urns: Urns are vessels that may contain cremated remains of a loved one. They are available in a variety of shapes, from simple, elegant containers to elaborate, personalized desk displays.
Cremation Pendants: Specially made cremation jewelry allows the bereaved to keep a small portion of cremated remains near the heart. Alternatively, locks of hair or dried flowers from the memorial service may be enclosed in each necklace.
Plaques and Other Displays: Some funeral homes arrange offer personalized plaques and objets d’art, which may display information about the deceased and especially meaningful poems, quotes, and pictures.
