Creating a Service Program or Order of Service for your loved ones funeral service is a lot more than just putting together an itinerary. It is a chance to work together with your friends and family. Choosing the photos, messages and sentiments that symbolise your loved one’s life and deciding together the best way to present their celebration of life.
And for those who won’t be able to make it to the ceremony, a Service Program is the next best thing to actually being there. It is a concrete connection to the person being celebrated, and something they’ll be able to keep for years as a reminder of how your loved one was honoured.
While it might not seem like the most urgent part of arranging your loved one’s service, the finished program could end up being the longest-lasting – so you ought to make sure you create something you can all be proud of.
While the ceremony itself is almost always a serious affair, don’t feel that the photo on the cover page or any other has to be. When your Family and Friends pick up the service program years later, it is not a bad thing if they see a memory that makes them smile.
Heartfelt Funerals works very closely with a local Graphic designer and will gather your photos and stories to create one of the seven designs available. Your design will then be created and a proof will be sent for your approval before production.
Hold on to the special thoughts and memories shared by family and friends. Photos, stories and memories, Memorial book entries not only provide a record of attendance at your loved ones service, but also allow you to record personal details such as family members, and service details. Heartfelt Funerals can also provide copies for other Family members if they wish. This can be discussed with your Funeral Director when you meet with them.
