What is a Memorial Service?
Memorial services have become more and more common. Unlike a funeral, a memorial service is held without a casket present. The cremated remains of the deceased may be on the altar/table or not.
The service is often held within a week after the death, but it can be postponed for several weeks to give the family time to make travel arrangements and prepare the service.
The memorial service is more informal than a funeral; people mingle and exchange memories of the deceased. You can approach someone else standing alone, introduce yourself, and ask, “How did you know Marla?”
Another term for a Memorial Service is A Celebration of Life. A few family members and/or friends may speak or play music.
There may be a memorial register for you to sign. Include a brief comment if you wish, such as, “Jimmy lives in my heart.” Or you may get a memory card where you can write about the person: “Jane taught me how to write, and that helped me get my first job. She always looked out for other people. I’ll never forget her.” The family will read through those cards and feel comforted by your written contribution to their memories.
