Even the smallest touch can make a big difference in personalizing your funeral services. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to celebrating your loved one and honoring their life, accomplishments, and individuality.
Honor What Makes Them Unique
Personalization isn’t just about honoring your loved one’s individuality. It also allows family and friends to feel connected to the services and the life being honored. A memorable and meaningful service can be an important part of the healing process for those who are coping with a loss. We work closely with you to get to know your loved one’s life story and brainstorm ways to represent your bond and pay tribute to their unique journey.
Life Tribute Videos
We’ll create a one-of-a-kind video tribute to your loved one by combining family photographs with cinematic introductions, music of your choice, and professional effects to share your loved one’s special journey during the service and provide your family and friends with a meaningful keepsake after the ceremony is over.
From the register book and memorial folders to prayer cards and thank-you notes, our high-quality stationery sets are available in over 500 themes to honor your loved one’s hobbies, style, and unique life path. Let us help you explore the options and choose the perfect design to create treasured keepsakes for you and your guests.
Memorial sites not only allow you to share stories, photos, and videos of your loved one; they also allow you to connect with family and friends. When visiting the Celebration Wall, guests can leave text comments to share condolences, or offer words of support and sympathy through video or audio messages. Guests can also view the obituary and service information, and order gifts directly through the site. This page serves as a permanent virtual tribute to your loved one, and a place you can return whenever you’d like to revisit memories and reconnect with messages of support and love. When visiting the Celebration Wall, guests can leave text comments to share condolences, or offer words of support and sympathy through video or audio messages which will be monitored by our staff.
Why Do We Offer Live Webcasting?
Because sometimes you just can’t be there.
Groff Funeral Homes and Crematory is very pleased to begin offering funeral webcasts and memorial DVD's as another of the many ways we help families celebrate the life of their loved one.
All too often, individuals who have lost a loved one or friend are unable to attend the funeral or memorial service in person for many reasons. For those individuals, this can be a great stress and is often times very painful. This is where funeral webcasts have become a valuable addition. They are not meant to replace people coming to the funeral, but it does allow people who can't be there in person, to participate in a special way. Funerals are for the living - they aid in the grieving process and help survivors face the reality that their loved one has died. Funeral webcasts make it possible for everyone to attend the funeral without regard to time, distance or cost. Viewers are able to see their friends and family members at the service and listen to the music and eulogies from any location using a simple internet connection and a secure password. For those who find comfort in viewing the cremation process, private webcasting from our Serenity Room can be arranged for your peace of mind.
What is Live Webcasting?
Webcasts rose from obscurity in the 1990s to become a staple of modern communication, connecting people across continents and around the world by drawing them into a virtual gathering place for a common purpose. Businesses quickly adopted the webcast as a convenient and cost-effective way to conduct meetings and seminars, and today webcasts are everywhere - including funerals.
At Groff Funeral Homes and Crematory, we are now able to broadcast funeral or memorial services via the Internet. The high quality live transmission of audio and video allows family and friends that are separated by distance to be a part of the celebration of life. Our simple system ensures ease of viewing with no complicated software to install.
On the day of the webcast do not go to this public page! The actual funeral or memorial service webcast is linked directly to each person’s obituary page and can be viewed by clicking the live webcast link below the full obituary. You will be prompted to enter the password provided to you by the family.
Please contact us directly for more information.
