Memorial Service in Reading, PA

For many families in Reading, PA, a funeral or memorial service is the first step in the grieving process. Friends, family and coworkers can come together to grieve openly and support one another.  It is also a time to say goodbye to your loved one.  
 
For thousands of years, memorial services have allowed those left behind to express their feelings about the death of someone they love. It’s a ritual that provides comfort when things seem hectic and out of sorts and allows the healing process to begin.
 
Whether your choice is burial or cremation, a traditional funeral or an innovative, unique celebration of life, Lutz Funeral Home will provide our full support before, during and after the services. Our goal is to provide you with information and explain the many available options to help you make decisions. 
 
We proudly embrace traditional values, diversity, and innovation in honoring the spirit and life of each person we serve, with a full selection of:
  • Funeral and graveside services 
  • Memorial services and celebrations of life
  • Cremation options with private on-site crematory
  • Caskets, vaults and urns
  • Green burial and green cremation services
  • Celebrant services
Personalizing Funerals and Memorial Services
 
At Lutz Funeral Home, the work of our Funeral Directors extends far beyond handling the transportation, embalming and final disposition of the deceased. We are called upon by families to plan, organize and conduct memorial services that honor the departed and bring comfort to grieving loved ones. 
 
When meeting with you during an arrangement conference, we ask questions about your loved one’s personality, their hobbies, careers, passions and favorite places. Your answers give us inspiration and ideas for personalizing the funeral service. 
 
While every family is different and many cultures and faiths prefer a traditional or religious ceremony, there is a growing trend toward unique and personal memorial services. Lutz Funeral Home can offer many ways to incorporate memories of your loved one into the service and make it as unique as the life you are celebrating.
 
We welcome your suggestions. We want to assist you with a truly meaningful service that memorializes your loved one in a way that brings you comfort. Some of the wonderful options we can help you create include:
  • A photo collage, a photo slideshow, or other visual elements that tell the story of your loved one’s life in images that can be displayed at the memorial service.
     
  • A personalized floral spray that incorporates your loved one’s special talent or hobby. Many people find peace from the sight and smell of flowers, and, after the service they can be preserved and turned into jewelry, Christmas ornaments and other personalized keepsakes.
     
  • A video tribute that can be shown at the service. A copy of this tribute is provided to the immediate family, and additional DVDs can be made for those who would also like to have a copy. 
     
  • A Book of Memories™, a permanent online memorial where you and your friends can build a legacy of memories by archiving treasured photos and memories.
     
  • Something that can be given to guests who attend the service. Consider something living, such as a plant or seeds for someone who enjoyed gardening, or a tealight candle gift to remind guests to light a candle in remembrance of your loved one.
     
  • A memory jar or memory tree where guests can share a remembrance or detailed condolence.
When planning a memorial service in Reading, PA, get in touch with Lutz Funeral Home to discuss your wishes and let us help you create a funeral or celebration of life in honor of your loved one that you will remember forever.
