Ceremonies, Services and Gatherings
A Funeral or Memorial Service, represents a purposeful opportunity to reflect on the meaning of a life that has been lived and to determine the impact of that meaning for family and friends. There is no single proper Funeral or Memorial Service. It is a time for human sharing in its deepest sense. You and the ones you love are at the very center of the process, and the choices you make will determine its significance for you. As you participate in the planning of the service, you help create a meaningful experience for everyone.
It is the goal of Wilhelm's Portland Memorial to help people complete the relationship with the one who has passed away and to provide a climate that encourages each person to give and receive emotional support. During the funeral service, family and friends have the opportunity to relate to each other at the deepest levels and find mutual strength.
At Wilhelm's Portland Memorial, we encourage families to create very personalized services. It is important to acknowledge the life that has been lived and to offer to the community a way in which to celebrate that life. By offering services and memorialization features that are personal and special, a unique life can be remembered and honored in an individualized way that is comforting to family and friends.
There are many ways to share the memories of your loved one and to create a personal tribute that may be shared with others. We can offer ideas to help your family plan a unique memorialization, such as producing a custom personal video, displaying memorabilia and photographs, creating memorial folders and selecting special music.
The services you select may depend upon whether you are making immediate need or “advance planning” arrangements. Either way, our staff can guide you through all aspects of the services and memorial options to consider.
