Obituaries or memorial cards also referred to as Funeral cards or prayer cards are the tailored mementos or keepsakes that you are handed over to at funeral gatherings of a departed person. These are to act as keepsakes that are created to celebrate the deceased soul’s love and keep him in other’s memories.
Memorial cards are double-sized, tough, laminated cards that are not only distributed at funerals but are also provided to the attendants of a memorial service, a vigil, life celebration events, and so on. The purpose, however, is the same: to remember the ones that have left this world in our prayers and to reminisce their presence every time we see those cards. These are created by a funeral director or personally crafted by the lamented individual’s close relatives.
One side of these double-leafed cards is designated for providing the deceased person’s details such as his/her photo, name, Date-of-birth, Date-of-death, the cemetery where he/she is buried, parents’ name/spouse’s name, the family members left sorrowed behind, etc.
The second leaf of the memorial card contains expressions and wordings for the deceased that contains a considerate, careful note about a person’s life, his achievements, his memories, and the legacy he has left behind. This might also be a poem or a collection of phrases that in a literary manner explains your love for the departed soul. Their final words, favorite quotation, the lyrics of their favorite song, or a verse or scripture from the holy book that they loved.
