Memorialization is the process of remembering a loved one through a formal or informal ceremony. Jewellery, special books, collections or other special remembrance items can be helpful in remembering that person, who is no longer with us.
Personalization is important in memorialization. Everyone is different in the way we touch peoples lives, and that should be remembered. There is no such thing as a "standard funeral service".
It is important that families have the freedom and opportunity to create a funeral service that is important and meaningful for them. Every community across the country has certain traditions such as viewings, wakes and church services that allow us to acknowledge death. These traditions are very important.
Swift Current Funeral Home acknowledges and endorses these important traditions, but we are also committed in encouraging families to personalize funeral services. If they wish, family members and friends are encouraged to take part in the services by offering personal reflections of the life that has been lived or participating in special music of readings. Visual displays such as photo boards, powerpoint slideshows and personal keepsake displays are important in memorialization and are very meaningful to family and friends at the funeral.
Swift Current Funeral Home has assisted families with custom designed memorial folders, graveside balloon releases, outdoor funerals, and custom floral arrangements which incorporate special mementos.
It is our belief that the more families and friends participate in the memorialization process; the closer they will be to starting the road to living again.
