A funeral programs tribute is a way to pay respect to the recent passing of a loved one. There are many ways in which you can pay a tribute. Some examples may include a speech, a song, a memorial video, a memory table, or written sentiments within the funeral program.

The funeral program is a long-lasting keepsake that highlights memories of the deceased throughout their lifetime. It is the printed remembrance of the ending and celebration of their life. Since people tend to keep the program for many years, it is considered to be one of the best ways to pay tribute because it extends beyond the funeral service.

Creating a tribute is not as time-consuming as you may think and can be done within a few days from creation to final printing. Just make sure you have all your information prepared and ready before you sit down at the computer. This will save you much time if you gather the data beforehand.

To pay tribute within a funeral program, you may want to include a photo collage of your loved one from early in their life to the later years. You can arrange it in chronological order within the program if you so desire. Also, include a detailed obituary. You should already have an obituary if you published the death announcement in a local newspaper. If you had a space limitation in the newspaper publication, you can include the obituary in its entirety within the funeral program.

Other items to include may be their favorite poem or scripture, song lyrics such as "Amazing Grace," and prayers such as the Serenity Prayer or the Lord's Prayer. These are all excellent choices for inclusion.

The completed funeral program may be a booklet presentation if you have much to include. You need to make sure you plan ahead on how you want the pages arranged. Don't hesitate to enlist the help of a friend or family member if it looks like it may be more work than you originally anticipated. Helpers will make the process go smoother and faster.
