There are many ways to express your thoughts through words, and more than likely it will depend on the wishes of deceased. Some loved ones may have preplanned their own service with the funeral messages they wanted read. And others may not have had time to do this, and the family and friends will need to decide what words should be presented.

One way that funeral messages can be expressed is with music. Meaningful songs can be played before, during or after the eulogy or be played before a particular family member or friend presents their reading or remembrance story.

Faith often plays an important role in funeral messages and presentations. The messages may also differ between a traditional funeral and a memorial service that is taking place some months after the loved one’s passing where emotions may not be running so high.

Funerals and memorial services generally shouldn’t be consumed with mourning and grieving but rather remembering and honoring the loved one with enjoyable memories, even funny memories as well.

Transcript of "Funeral Messages Can Help With Grieving"

  1. 1. creat ivepersonalizedkeepsakes.com http://creativepersonalizedkeepsakes.com/funeral-messages/ Funeral Messages Can Help With Grieving One of the best ways to honor loved ones who have passed and help those lef t behind is to deliver thoughtf ul and meaningf ul f uneral messages. Whether you’re planning a traditional f uneral service with a eulogy or a memorial service with several people expressing their thoughts and remembrances, these special words can help you through the grieving process. How the Right Funeral Messages Help With Grieving There are many ways to express your thoughts through words, and more than likely it will depend on the wishes of deceased. Some loved ones may have preplanned their own service with the f uneral messages they wanted read. And others may not have had time to do this, and the f amily and f riends will need to decide what words should be presented. Military services f or a f allen loved one may need to f ollow specif ic steps such as rendering Military Honors. The type of service may also depend on the f aith of the deceased. Some f unerals or memorial services may be planned out by the f uneral director too, with a traditional eulogy by a minister plus f riends and f amily saying a f ew words in remembrance of the loved one. But whatever types of f uneral messages a f amily and loved ones decide on, they must be f itting of the character and personality of the deceased and representative of the lif e they lived and how they touched their f amily and f riends during their lives. This is especially important if the loved one passed on suddenly without time to express their own wishes f or how they wanted a f uneral or memorial service conducted. One way that f uneral messages can be expressed is with music. Meaningf ul songs can be played bef ore, during or af ter the eulogy or be played bef ore a particular f amily member or f riend presents their reading or remembrance story. Again, the music must be something that the loved one would have wanted to hear, maybe a f avorite song they played of ten or even a song that they wrote themselves. Faith of ten plays an important role in f uneral messages and presentations. The messages may also dif f er between a traditional f uneral and a memorial service that is taking place some months af ter the loved one’s passing where emotions may not be running so high. For instance, if the deceased was active in a church, that church’s minister may deliver a shortened version of a Sunday sermon and speak about the activities that the loved one was involved with at the church.
  2. 2. On the other hand, if the loved one was not particularly religious at all and didn’t attend any church, f riends and f amily may be called on instead to deliver the memorial or f uneral message in a more secular tone than religious-based. The most important thing to remember when planning a f uneral or memorial service is that the message in itself is to help the f amilies heal and help them through their time of grieving. The person who presents the main eulogy or remembrance sermon should speak f or about 15 to 20 minutes, which allows others to tell stories about how the loved one touched their lives. And since laughter always aids in healing, don’t f eel as though you can’t share f unny stories that happened or f unny things that the loved one did that are exceptionally humorous. Funerals and memorial services generally shouldn’t be consumed with mourning and grieving but rather remembering and honoring the loved one with enjoyable memories, even f unny memories as well.
