Honor & Respect To The Last
When it comes to honoring veterans, no other funeral or cremation providers are more committed or more capable to fulfill you or your family’s wishes. If you are a veteran or are responsible for the arrangements of a veteran, you can count on an exclusive Veterans & Family Memorial Care provider to design a memorial tribute that will be thoughtful and personal. Please consult the Veterans & Family Memorial Care provider nearest you for tribute options that are available to honor and remember the dedicated service and achievements of you or your loved one.
The Significance of Ceremony
Bringing family and friends together at a time of loss is natural, and a socially-expected practice. Not only that, a funeral or memorial service, whether in a traditional or contemporary setting, is the first step in healing. There are many ways to honor the life of your loved one. Honoring the life of your loved one speaks directly to the relationship you shared. Coming together with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to share memories, express emotions, and find comforting support. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved them is a gift to everyone involved. A gift of memories, a gift of healing and a gift of a lifetime.
Meaningful Life Tributes
Most VFMC Providers offer professionally designed photo collages that capture precious moments in an individual's lifetime. You may consider having them create a tribute video of family photographs that can be blended with unique graphics and music. Personalized printing in the form of a memory book/guestbook, memorial bookmarks, prayer cards, folders and service programs including a favorite poem or photo are fitting keepsakes that will be treasured by those attending. Memorial websites connect family and friends with photos and videos honoring your loved one and serve as a permanent memorial.
Simple, Traditional or Uniquely Personalized
If you choose to have ground burial or mausoleum entombment the service or ceremony usually involves the casket being present. You can choose to have a viewing or a closed casket visitation, and then a funeral service in a church or the funeral home chapel. There are no specific rules or guidelines that you must adhere to. You may even consider an eco-friendly casket or one with a theme. Gathering together before the interment or entombment to honor your loved one is the first step and the most essential component in creating balance and tranquility.
Contrary to what many people think, choosing cremation means there are countless options for creating a meaningful Remembrance Service or Life Tribute. Honoring the life of a loved one is an essential part of the healing process. You may wish to have a service or ceremony at the funeral home or a place of worship before or after cremation. You have many choices when considering the final disposition of the cremated remains. Some families keep them in an urn at home. Many distribute them amongst family members via keepsake urns or keepsake jewelry.
Having confidence in the funeral home you choose is essential. Veterans & Family Memorial Care Providers are acutely aware that you never get a second opportunity to honor the life of your loved one. VFMC selects funeral homes with experience caring for families from all walks of life. We choose them because they are leaders in their profession and are committed to providing dedicated, caring service while upholding the highest level of ethical business standards. They believe in the bond of trust created between neighbors serving neighbors.
