Helping to Personalize a Funeral

A funeral is, in essence, a personalized service dedicated to the memory of the deceased. At Chapel of the Chimes, we are here to help you and your family with your needs for funeral pre-planning near Oakland. Whether you are planning ahead for your own passing or arranging funeral services for a loved one, we can help you personalize the services.

The first step in personalizing a funeral is to recognize that planning a funeral can be stressful, which can be especially difficult to handle when grieving. Take a deep breath and focus on the most important tasks first, recognizing that the funeral does not have to be perfect to honor the life of your loved one. One of the best ways to personalize a funeral is to consider your memories of the deceased. Think of his or her hobbies, passions, likes, dislikes, achievements, qualities, and loved ones. Personalizing the eulogy, music, readings, and reception to these aspects of your loved one’s life will ensure the funeral services are as unique as the life your loved one lived.
