We understand that the death of a loved one is a very sad and distressing time for everyone. Finding even the smallest thing that can offer some comfort at this difficult time is often a blessing. Candles can be used during a funeral service as well as creating a lasting memory for family and friends. Candles add comforting light and warmth to a memorial or funeral service. When they’re personalized with photos, poetry, quotations or sacred text, they become a keepsake that’s worthy of display afterwards.
Lighting candles has long been a part of a funeral service. Their flickering flames, symbolic of life, add comfort and a sense of occasion to the proceedings. Tapers and votives, traditionally used in religious services, are also popular. They span the gap between religious and secular services, and are appropriate for any type of memorial or funeral service.
Memorial candles are designed to be used during the service, but they are also intended to be a lasting tribute to the deceased. Adding one or more favorite photos, a personal quote or a quotation from literature, a poem or religious verse creates a very personal, meaningful memento.
Personalised memorial candles make thoughtful gifts for anyone, but especially for those unable to attend the funeral service. Adding photos and text that are meaningful to each person is a lovely way to honor a connection to the deceased. Candles placed in holders can be burned without disturbing the printed effects, making the customized holders a truly lasting memorial.
