When you choose cremation services in Franklin Park, IL, you shouldn’t feel limited in ways you can pay your respects or celebrate the life of a loved on. At Sax-Tiedemann Funeral Home & Crematorium we understand that losing a loved one is unfathomably hard. Trying to plan a funeral or cremation services in Franklin Park, IL can be even more difficult when you are dealing with the shock and grief of your loss. We can help you plan a cremation funeral with special details that will give your loved on the memorial they deserve. One of the ways you make a cremation ceremony more personal is to create a memory display.
A memory display is simply a collection of special photos and items that are meaningful to the family or were special to the deceased. You can display the items next to the urn or even on their own. There is no limit to the number of items you can display, and we have plenty of table space to make your memory display. Here are a few things you may want to consider incorporating into your display.
Photos are perfect for memory displays because they capture the special moments you want to remember about your loved one. You can frame the photos or add them to poster board or even a backdrop. You can also encourage friends and family members to bring their favorite photos and add them to the display. You can also offer to make copies of special photos so guests can take them home.
If the deceased has any items that they were passionate about, you can add them to your memory display. Common items include jewelry, collector’s items, things that relate to their hobbies or talents, sport’s team memorabilia, and anything else that reminds you of your loved one or that you feel they cared a lot about and would want to be present at the funeral.
If your deceased loved one was a member of any organizations, schools, or businesses, you may want to include clothing, pins, accomplishments in the display. Things like diplomas, office name tags, uniforms, and even company logos can be displayed next to the urn. This is another way to welcome others to bring in things that they relate to the deceased or that they feel should be one display at the funeral.
