We at Wallace & Wallace recognize every family has its own needs, ideas and desires about creating a meaningful memorial experience. Our goal is to assist each family as you plan so your tribute meets your needs and honors the wishes of your loved one. There is no "one size fits all" answer, below is a list of some of the many options to consider.
No matter which type of service you choose your family will be provided with the full services of the funeral director and our staff. This includes any necessary document filing or attention to special religious requirements.
It is important for a family to be aware of the varying emotional needs of all those touched by a death. A visitation provides an opportunity for friends and family to connect and support each other as they share their memories. Pictures or a pictorial slide show are an excellent vehicle for sharing those memories.
Honoring the life of a loved one with a traditional funeral or memorial service helps those who are grieving their loss. There are many ways to personalize a funeral or memorial service. Your minister or officiant will often guide you in making these decisions. The selection of music, use of meaningful scripture or poetry, floral choices and participation of fraternal, musical, or religious groups can all add richness to the memorial experience.
