Our family and friends have a major impact on our everyday lives. When a family member or dear friend passes away, honoring their memory is something you want to do. Every person uses different methods to honor their loved person’s memory. We at Tindall Funeral Home have put together a few of the most memorable ones:

1. Create A Short Movie Or Collage

In today’s era, we all have pictures, videos and memorable moments captured in our smartphone. Creating a compilation to display it during the memorial is one of the easiest ways to create a memorable experience. The videos can be shown to other family members that were unable to attend the event.

2. Donate To Charitable Institutions

Funerals can be the perfect tool to encourage people to do the right thing. For example, if a friend lost his life in an accident caused by drunk driving, you could start a charity for the victims of these incidents and can also encourage your family members to do the same.

3. Play Their Favorite Music

Funerals tend to be a bit dull, but in some instances, you should change the music and choose a different approach. Playing music that the deceased person enjoyed would be a much better way to honor them.

4. Create A Memory Board

A memory board consists of all the celebrations of the deceased. Time spent with family, friends & relatives can be turned into a memory board that might help provide comfort in their time of grief.

5. A Memory Quilt Is A Great Option

The clothes of the deceased can be gathered, cut and stitched to create a quilt that will help you remember your loved ones.
