Memorial services are a special time to bring family and friends together in honor of the deceased. They can be held soon after death or at any time a special memorial service is desired in order to pay tribute to occasions or events in the life of a loved one. If you'd like to arrange for a simple gathering or an elaborate Celebration of Life, you can be confident knowing that the experienced staff at Madison Funeral Home will expertly organize your personalized memorial service with care.
Customs and Traditions
Traditionally, memorial services take place after the funeral or service. During the memorial service, people may say prayers, deliver eulogies, read passages from scripture or literature, or sing songs. They may be simple with few people, large and elaborate, or based around a special occasion or favorite time of year. Memorial services can be arranged to pay special tribute to customs and traditions, or simply to honor a fond memory or event. Memorial services may be held in traditional locations, such as a religious place of worship, or in a location with personal significance, such as a park or a family home.
