About Our Memorial Services
One particular type of memorial service that stands out from all the rest is the traditional service for veterans. At American Heritage Cemetery & Funeral Home Crematory, we consider it an honor to help plan and conduct the memorial services and funerals of those who have served our nation. We understand the special attention and respect they deserve. Leave all the details to us. Entitled veteran benefits will be secured by one of our trusted staff if the individual was eligible to receive them.
Naturally, those who have not served in the military deserve respect and caring, as well. The memorial services we offer can help honor and remember the departed in whatever manner you choose. Many prefer a somber, traditional approach. But others want the event to be a celebration of life that is fun and unique. Whatever your wishes, or the wishes of the departed, we will work with you to fulfill them.
How American Heritage Cemetery & Funeral Home Crematory Can Help
What is a memorial service? When someone passes away, to memorialize the departed, a funeral service is held. During funerals, the departed is frequently present. Whether or not they are present for a memorial service is up to their final wishes or the person planning the service. Final services are held to memorialize the departed – ergo the name. Ordinarily, if, prior to the service, burial occurs, the service held is technically referred to as a "memorial service".
Different religions and walks of life call for various types of memorial services, funerals, burials, etc. Because no two people are alike, no two memorial services will be exactly the same. That's okay. We encourage you to celebrate your loved one’s uniqueness by making their memorial service as distinctive as possible.
There are numerous aspects that can be included in a memorial service, depending on your wishes or those of the departed. A service may include a program to help those in attendance people follow along. These can include the following:
- Information regarding the departed
- Favorite memories
- Copies of readings
- List of songs played
- Names of speakers
- Photographs, and more.
