We’d like to share some of them with you today.

When you sit down to pre-arrange your funeral, feel free to use any ideas that you feel would help set the tone you’d like for your Hardin County funeral and reception.

  1. Chinese Lantern Release. Lanterns flying high above your funeral guests leaves a beautiful last image your guests will associate with celebrating your life.

Elements like this can really set the tone for you Southeast Texas funeral and give your guests an opportunity to meaningfully participate in the process.
  2. Funeral Bagpiper: Did you know LOTS of Hardin County men, particularly of Irish and Scottish heritage, picture a bag piper playing at their funerals? We get this one a lot, but not everyone who has shared this wish with us has shared it with their spouse and families. Pre-arranging your Southeast Texas funeral plans lets you document special wishes like this.Funeral planning Big Thicket, bagpiper Beaumont TX, bagpiper Southeast Texas, bagpiper Golden Triangle, bagpiper Mid County It can be simple: I’d like a live bagpiper to play Flowers of the Forest, Highland Cathedral, The Skye Boat Song, Mist Covered Mountains, Amazing Grace, Taps, Danny Boy (Southeast Texas Funeral Fun Fact- Danny Boy was not actually written to be played on bagpipes, but most bagpipers can accommodate). If they know in advance, bagpipers can adapt your favorite songs to the bagpipes- Angel Band, I’ll Fly Away. You can even identify 2-3 Southeast Texas pipers (or trumpeters or saxophone players) you’d like to use and leave their contact information for your family.
  3. Funeral Reception Menu: For Southeast Texas seniors, our food tastes are a reflection of our lives. What we eat tells of where we were raised, our ethnic culture, where we’ve traveled, and who we’ve been close to. Pre-arranging your Southeast Texas funeral reception lets you have those tastes reflected. Were you known for your fish fries?Funeral arrangements Beaumont Tx, funeral catering Beaumont TX, Lumberton Family Funeral Home, funeral home Southeast Texas, SETX funeral arrangements Have a fish fry at your reception. Were you the rib king of Lumberton? Have a friend or caterer serve ribs to your guests (Boomtown Barbecue in Beaumont has particularly tasty ribs). Food speaks to people. Planning your Hardin County funeral reception menu gives you a chance to recall special meals you’ve shared with friends and loved ones.
  4. Telling the tale. We all have a special life story. Your Hardin County funeral and reception provide an opportunity to share a version of that story with friends and family. I recently went to a beautiful Southeast Texas funeral in which the deceased had pre-arranged for three people to speak at his funeral – a childhood friend, a long-time co-worker, and a family member. Putting the three speeches together gave a wonderful picture of his life. The childhood friend spoke of their time growing up as children here in Southeast Texas (both men were in their 70s). It was really special, since his grandkids and his children were hearing aspects of his life for the first time- after all, how often do we think to talk about things we did as ten year olds? One story was about laying back in the woods after a bike ride and looking up at the clouds in the sky and imagining what shapes they represented. funeral planning Beaumont Tx, SETX funeral planning, funeral arrangements Southeast Texas, Golden Triangle funeral home, Lumberton Family Funeral homeThe co-worker talked about how a man could be extremely focused and “by the book” at work and laid back and personable at home- and of the occasional times when the two personalities overlapped. The family member talked not only of the legacy of the life he lived as a man, husband, father, and grandfather but of the legacies he expected of each of his children and grandchildren. Your life is a story – pre-arranging your Southeast Texas funeral can give you a chance to have that story told in a way that reflects the moments that meant the most to you.
  5. Share your story. For your family and closest friends, it can be especially meaningful to leave behind a personal message. It can be as simple as writing a quick note on a Hallmark card, printing a short letter from your printer, or you can take it up a notch and have your notes made into something more beautiful by a local printer (Beaumont Printing or Dominion Forms in Orange are both great and very creative). Tell a grandchild that you appreciated cooking with them and leave them a special recipe. funeral arrangements Hardin County Tx, funeral home Beaumont TX, funeral home Port Arthur, Lumberton Family Funeral Home, funeral planning Golden Triangle TXTell your son that you’re proud of the kind of parent he became. Tell an old friend that you appreciated the way they were always there for you. Put together a short book of photos with captions that tell what you remembered – “On the day you graduated from high school I knew our days as father and son were evolving and you were becoming your own man. You’d be a father soon with your own son to raise…” Memories, like our lives, are best when shared. Pre-arranging your SETX funeral and reception gives you one last chance to share those memories with friends and family.
