Here’s an idea: Provide friends and family with name tags when they enter the life celebration. As we get older, not only does our memory for names fade, but also our vision, so you’ll want to write in large clear print. On the bottom of the name tag leave an area where they can write how they knew the departed. Friends and family will then know the names of everyone attending and be able to start a conversation like, "Oh, you are John and played golf with my father..."

There is so little to remember of anyone -- an anecdote, a conversation at table. But every memory is turned over and over again, every word, however chance, written in the heart in the hope that memory will fulfill itself, and become flesh, and that the wanderers will find a way home, and the perished, whose lack we always feel, will step through the door finally and stroke our hair with dreaming, habitual fondness, not having meant to keep us waiting long, - Marilynne Robinson Housekeeping.

Peace on Earth - Pure white doves flock en masse to the miniature tree's branches, proclaiming "peace on Earth." Cut your own from white card stock and hang from lengths of ribbon. : I like the idea of using shapes, not sure it's the right choice though.
Creative inspiration: I'd like to use stamped white doves' flight feathers that our doves have naturally mounted.

Grief and Loss Quotes so true
Grief and Loss Quotes. Grief Attack. Healing.
I can be gardening, playing with the dog or cat, cooking... and then something - maybe a song, a particular flower, a space where something of yours was always kept - triggers the pain and the tears flow. Perhaps one day I'll be able to smile when the good memories come to mind. But not right now, and that's okay. I know you're close-by and that helps. †..*prαψεrš*.. ♡ LOVE and MISS YOU SO MUCH♡ (Grief and Loss Quotes)
So true. :( It will be 3 years soon, already... I miss you, Mom. ❤️
The anniversary date of a loved one's death is particularly significant. You will have done something you thought was impossible a few months earlier. You will have survived an entire year without someone who was as important to you as life itself.

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. ~ Washington Irving

Book Review: What My Mother Gave Me
In lieu of flowers/wreaths/plant gifts... Often at the end of the obituary, you will find a request for donations to be sent to a particular charity. It's another way to show your affection and admiration for the deceased by making a donation in his/her honor to a charity working to cure an illness which touched his/her life. You could also send a memorial donation to a charity his/her family has embraced or to a local not-for-profit organization he/she supported.
Flowers Wreaths Pl Gifts
Memorial Donations: Honor a friend or family member by donating to charity in their memory. It's a meaningful way to pay tribute and show how they live on in your heart.
