The Best Funeral Gift

Each religion has their own funeral rituals and convention but all of them share one important idea, to remember and celebrate the deceased’s life. The best funeral gift one can give the bereaved family is a lasting memorial that they can have to view and enjoy for the rest of their lives.

A video tribute is the best memorial I have discovered. Much more powerful than a plaque, picture, or little sculpture, they are an amazing way to say hello to your loved one anytime you desire. It is also a wonderful visual image to play at the wake, service or viewing. I have never seen still photographs grab the heart the way a tribute video can, they are truly powerful and emotional to watch. Lets face it, dying is expensive. We all usually want to buy a card and place some cash inside to help our family or friends pay for the exorbitant costs of a funeral, burial, or cremation. As wonderful as that gesture is, it does not have a lasting effect. Give a gift that they can have and hold forever and pass down to future generations.

A video tribute is such a unique and personal gift that you will surely be remembered as the donor of this treasured keepsake, as opposed to one of the many cards with cash inside. What is a Memorial DVD? In essence it is a short film or movie of your loved ones life. This is accomplished with the photographs you have taken of that special someone over the years. Unlike a slideshow however, motion and music is added (and narration if desired) to your still photographs and/or home ของชำร่วยงานศพ movies to make them come alive. Find a company that will work with you to create just what you are looking for. When you choose a video production company to make your gift, I would advise you to be sure they are not a cookie cutter, template style image factory, the video should be custom made for each individual. Quality video tributes range in price from around one hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.

In my research these high priced videos offer little or nothing more than reasonably priced ones. I would recommend spending no more than two hundred dollars on the basic package, of course if you want twenty-five copies it rightly would be more. Additional DVDs should cost no more than ten dollars each. One of the only features that I can justify some of the added costs of these four figure companies is web hosting your video online for one year. This is feature while useful is free to anyone on you tube, Google video, or many other free video posting sites and I would not be sold on this item alone. I feel it is a crime to charge so much for this simple task, and lets face it, taking an undue amount of money from the bereaved is rather slimy. I suggest you always speak to someone directly before sending your treasured photographs and/or home videos off to a company. Also since you are already sending media to your chosen video producer, make your payment the old fashioned way, with a enclosed check or money order as opposed to paying online for a service that has yet to be performed.
