Regardless of the type of service – traditional, cremation, memorial, etc.
we will do everything we can to make it memorable and special.

Make the services as special & unique as your loved one

At O’Connell’s, we help plan a funeral, memorial service, or gathering that reflects your family’s wishes, and honors and captures the spirit of the person who was so special to you. We are honored to guide you during this difficult time.

 

Samples of personalization How this can help
Memorial Photos (DVD or picture boards) Spark memories and start conversations among attendees.
Casket that attendees can sign It can be helpful for some people to write things down about their loved ones that they want to express or share with the family.
Clothing, sports equipment, military uniforms etc. to display The things that had meaning to your loved one will also give meaning to the people who attend the service.
Parking a car, boat, snowmobile, camper, motorcycle, or other vehicle by our entrance This can provide comfort to those who attend by seeing objects that were near and dear to their loved one.
Balloon, dove, or a butterfly release at the graveside service This can be a way to release emotion into an object and feel a part of the service.
Special food for the reception or visitation – “Grandpa loved homemade spaghetti” The smell of certain foods can trigger fond memories of your loved ones which can provide great comfort.
Custom floral arrangements Peace can come from the sight or smell of flowers.

Let our staff provide a helping hand.
