Losing a loved one is always difficult. Planning a funeral service can help friends and family say goodbye while also remembering everything they loved about him/her. If you’re planning a funeral service, you’ll want to consider having a tribute video made. Ask your funeral director for options and prices.
A tribute video will combine your personal family photographs with graphics and beautiful music, creating a touching memorial that can be played during the funeral service. After the funeral, your family will be able to keep this video to watch and cherish as a beautiful memento. You can also ask the funeral home to make copies of the tribute video so that other friends and family members will have a keepsake as well.
Evergreen Mortuary & Cemetery offers tribute videos and other special touches for funeral services near Tucson. Give us a call at (520) 888-7470 for more information about honoring your loved one’s life and planning cremation services, funeral arrangements, and more.
Have you thought about what you want to happen after your passing? By making your choices and communicating them clearly with family, you will ensure that they follow your wishes and aren’t left making decisions for you when you’re gone. This is especially beneficial so your loved ones know whether to choose burial or cremation . These tips can help you decide if cremation is the right choice for you:
Consider your religious or spiritual beliefs.
If you follow a religion or consider yourself a spiritual person, it’s important to think about how these views might influence your decision. Some religions have historically advised against cremation, stating that followers should only be buried after passing away. It’s a good idea to talk to a religious leader, though, as many religions have eased up on their regulations regarding cremation.
Consider what type of funeral service you want.
Funeral services provide friends and family members with an opportunity to gather and say goodbye to a deceased loved one. Many people think that funeral services are only appropriate when the deceased is being placed into a burial plot, but this is not true. Funerals can occur before either burial or cremation, giving friends and family a chance to come together and share memories whether the decedent has chosen burial or cremation.
Think about what you want your final resting place to be.
When deciding between burial or cremation, you should think about where you want your remains to rest after your passing. With burial, your body will be contained in a casket and then placed in a burial plot or mausoleum crypt. With cremation, your remains can be placed in an urn that loved ones can keep, or they can be placed in a cremation garden, columbarium, or cremation bench. You may also choose to have cremated remains buried in a plot in much the same way a casket would be.

Finding the right words to say to someone after they’ve suffered a loss is never easy, but know that your mere presence is comforting. It isn’t necessary for you to say much at all. In some cases, the less you say and the more you listen, the more you’ll help the person who is grieving. Do tell your friend that you’re sorry for their loss, and offer your assistance to help them through this difficult time. Your friend might need someone to accompany him or her to the funeral home to make the arrangements, for instance.
