What To Know When Considering A Memory Book For Funeral

By Sophia Nathan
When a person is filled with grief over the loss of a relative, they may not be fully aware of everything and everyone around them during the mourning period. Many people are likely to approach them to pay respects for the deceased and the family may wish to extend their thanks after a short time has passed. Having a funeral memory book compiled is one method used to deal with this issue.

It can sometimes be hard to recall each person one speaks to at such gatherings, even when not overcome with grief. Sometimes families have the desire to send an acknowledgement to those who shared their loss. This is why it has become standard practice to make a record of attendees at all memorial services.

The guest register is normally set up just inside the entrance to a service, or on a special table at the reception. As folks arrive, they can make their entries into the journal and to show the family their respect in attendance. Some styles only allow for a name but others provide space for relationship and contact information as well.

A more detailed version of this product permits individuals to leave a bit more information. They are encouraged to write a brief note of condolence or to share a short, yet special remembrance of the honored one. These personal moments can bring great comfort to the survivors.

Quite often, family members will return to these journals after their emotions have calmed, and refresh themselves on who came to services. All the names, words of encouragement and shared memories will let them know just how much their loved one meant to others. The cards that were sent with flowers, those received in the mail as well as messages left online may be added to the keepsake.

Many guests like to bring a photograph or other special token to leave on the memorandum table near the register. These may also be added to the collection to create a sentimental keepsake journal for the survivors. Having a sign in log can provide much comfort and assurance to remaining family members.
