how to

in memory

A photo box provides a meaningful keepsake for a loved one following a funeral or memorial service.

 

    Photographs are a lovely and comforting addition to funeral and memorial services, providing a visual tribute to a person’s life and accomplishments. This casket spray features such photographs in a rich wooden memory box, which is surrounded by a beautiful arrangement of golden roses as well as accent flowers and foliages. Leptospermum creates height and helps “frame” the memory box with gentle inward curves while the minimal colors of the botanicals keep them from visually competing with the photos. A piece of polyfoil creates a waterproof barrier between the wooden box and the floral foam in the casket saddle.
    In addition to displaying photographs of important events and people in the deceased’s life, the memory box features photo sleeves on the inside for holding additional 4-by-6-inch images. It also can hold mementos such as the program from the service, a small guest book and more, acting as a cherished keepsake for a loved one following the memorial event.
