Memorial services are busy, stressful, and often a blur for the family of the deceased. Often, during a funeral service, attendees will be invited to share memories of the loved one, and these will be humorous, touching, and interesting. But how to remember so many stories and insights?
That is why at Urns Northwest we are proud to offer a ready-to-use package of memory cards, to be filled out by those who share (or don’t have time during the service to share) wonderful memories of their friend.
