USA Today reported that many memorials are being conducted with unique and personalized eulogies without any mention of God or the hereafter. Seems families are opting for a more religiously sanitized celebration than a gospel laced exhortation to the grieving families.
I have planned my memorial service. It started because of my penchant for writing poetry and songs. One day for some reason I wrote what I would like on my Tombstone. I opt for the celebatory memorial. It goes like this:
A Husband, a Father, a Friend for a time
He has now come to the end of the line
Since our gracious God was merely a lender
Would you please, return him to sender?
What about you? Have you thought or planned for your memorial service?
Do you prefer the typical funeral or a celebratory memorial event?
What say ye?
