The other day there was a knock at the door, I answered it to see a little old lady asking to speak to In Loving Memory about a Funeral Order of Service Booklet. I welcomed her in, made a cup of tea and sat down to have a chat. I presumed she wanted one for a family member or a friend, but no, it was for herself!!!

I had not thought about it before but why not prepare your own Order of Service Funeral Booklet? You can choose your favourite hymns, readings, photos, write your own Eulogy, choose the colours and have something that you like and you want people to remember you by.

While chatting to this quiet, shy lady she suddenly announces she has played ice hockey, actually driven in stock car races and been part of a Lifeboat team!! Great stories and so unexpected, I told her she must include these in her own booklet because nobody would believe them, but this is her life – Watch this space.

Perhaps we all should be thinking about own Order of Service Funeral Booklets while we are still here and In Loving Memory can help you achieve this.
