Building The Perfect Video Memorial For Your Loved One

We at Willowbrook Cemetery think a video memorial is a beautiful way to remember a loved one who has passed. The pain of loss and the helplessness we may feel in the face of our sorrow is a well-known reality. However, the act of remembering a deceased loved one is often a healing one.

Videos are a great way to let others know your cherished one by discovering the real person behind the pictures you provide. Put together a touching tribute film to honor the life of your departed friend or family member that can be shown at a service or viewing, shared with others online, or watched at home with family and friends.

Considerations While Creating A Video Memorial

Here are some aspects to consider while creating a video memorial:

  • Think about the best way to get the video out there. It is helpful to recognize that the way you present the homage will determine the video's format and length.
  • Stop and think about a funny or touching memory you shared with someone special. Anyone seeing the tribute video will feel like they were a part of the journey you and your partner took.
  • Remember the values your cherished one stood for and how their life impacted others. Each picture must perfectly fit one of these schematics. When making your image selection, keep in mind the following:
  • Show how the person thought and felt
  • Exhibit your cherished one's character
  • Don't forget to factor in the person's teenage years. Since many of the guests may not be familiar with the subject of the photographs, they provide an excellent opportunity to introduce them to a new side of the honored person.
  • Draw attention to important moments like birthdays, anniversaries, marriages, and new babies.
  • You should talk about your trips, where you went, and how much fun you had with your loved ones on the holidays and vacations.
