Personalization

Personalization Service

A funeral should be as unique and special as the person it represents. More and more families are realizing the importance of creating a personalized tribute that celebrates an individual's life, loves and special moments. There are many meaningful ways to remember someone we love. 

Keep in mind that a funeral or memorial service can take place almost anywhere at any time. From a traditional setting to a favorite indoor or outdoor location, you can choose the option that best reflects your family's beliefs and the life or interests of your loved one. 

Including special items of remembrance in a service allows you to celebrate the things that made that person unique. This might involve photos, articles from a personal collection, a well-loved piece of music or even a favorite food. What about a dove or balloon release? From simple to elaborate, the possibilities for sharing special memories are unlimited. 

There are also many meaningful ways to pay ongoing tribute to a friend or family member. Lasting keepsakes such as engraved golf balls or copies of a poem can be given to guests at a service as a memento to honor a special life. In addition, a special tribute in the form of a donation, an event or a permanent memorial can help create enduring and important reminders of the person you loved. 

Whether you are planning a service for someone close to you, or are interested in preplanning options, we are here to assist you in creating a personal and loving tribute that will celebrate a life lived and serve as a source of inspiration and comfort to those left behind.

Memory Tables

Memory Tables - At the visitation and funeral, the display of personal photos and memorabilia bring comfort to those attending as well as to the immediate family. Bauman Family Funeral Homes offer several options for displaying your items, including memory tables, which allows for a more extensive display of personal items and biographical information.

Custom Memorial Folders

Custom Memorial Folders - A custom memorial folder reflects your loved one's life with favorite photos, a message and/or literary quotation. Custom memorial folders at the visitation, the funeral and afterwards help communicate those precious memories. Families treasure them at their time of need and later.

Laminated Obituary Bookmarks

Laminated Obituary Bookmarks - Laminated to last for generations, these bookmarks contain your loved ones color photo and full obituary. They are available to all family and friends upon request.

Life Symbols Casket Corners

Life Symbols Casket Corners - To the praying hands promise of hope to the token of love signified by the rose, Life Symbols designs add a distinct, loving touch. Every design shares something special about the life being honored. They tastefully personalize the casket and double as individual keepsakes for family and friends.

Memory Portraits

Memory Portraits - Memory portraits pay tribute to your loved one while bringing comfort to family and friends. These beautiful and timeless custom portraits resemble old world style paintings. They are displayed during the visitation and funeral.

Personalized Casket Cap Panels

Personalized casket lid panels - Whether depicting a beloved saying or an image of a favorite pastime, commemorative panels salute our individuality. Their very addition to the casket sparks conversation and binds us together in remembrance.

Bagpipers

Bagpipers - For some people music is integral to the funeral rights. Mention bagpipes and most people will associate them with funerals. This association of the bagpipes and funerals stem from what the pipes can do best, powerfully play and touch the deepest emotions where words fail to reach. For hundreds of years the bagpipes have been played at funeral services, commemorating their loss of a loved one with music. The soulful sounds of the bagpipe's ancient scale express convictions and feelings that words alone may fail to convey. If you are reading this article, you may be in need of a bagpiper to help you and your family deal with a very difficult time in your lives. We can help you find and use the services of bagpiper at a funeral.

Special Funeral Procession Routes

Special Funeral Procession Routes - Often our funeral processions travel special routes that are requested by family. We honor requests to drive past home places, work places, schools, and more. If these places are special to the family that we are serving, then they are important to us.

Tribute Videos

Tribute Videos - Our video tributes are more than a unique way to show the past. They are a remarkable way to share memories. You provide old photos of family and friends and we will develop a one-of-a-kind video montage. It is set to music and shown during the visitation and service. Treasure it for the day. Keep it forever. Video Tributes, a moving experience.

Picture Boards

Picture Boards - Pictures displayed during the visitation help tell the story of a person's life. We provide the board and fasteners for you to create a special photo montage.

Special Funeral Service Locations

Special Funeral Service Locations - We offer the flexibility of conducting the funeral at a special location. Whether you request a service at your family church, the state park, or at the golf course; we will take care of all the details to accomplish your request. The possibilities are endless with us.

Personalized Register Books

Personalized Register Books - Our register books can be personalized with pictures of your loved one. They include important information with details in regard to services, cemetery, pallbearers, obituary, and family.

Personalized Casket Flowers

Personalized Casket Flowers - We have helped many families plan special floral tributes for their loved ones. Casket flowers can be personalized with golf clubs, wooden decoys, tractors, race cars, garden vegetables, and much more. Tell our staff what you want and we will take care of the details.

Life Symbols Keepsake Plaque

Life Symbols Keepsake Plaque - This keepsake plaque provides a tangible reminder of a special bond and encourages us to revisit fond memories. The Life Symbols Casket Corners attach easily, while a photo holder and engraved plate offer space for further personalization.

Living Memorial Tree Planting Program

Living Memorial Tree Planting Program - When you select a Batesville casket we arrange for a tree seedling to be planted in selected woodlands at no cost to you. This program has been responsible for reforesting many thousands of acres with more than ten million trees. The existence of these trees brings comfort and hope. They ensure that generations to come will know the beauty of a green planet ~ a legacy to honor a life well lived.

Personalized Temporary Marker

Personalized Temporary Marker. This laser engraved Corian plaque serves as a name plaque for the register stand during the visitation and funeral; the luncheon buffet table and serves as a temporary cemetery marker until the permanent memorial arrives. Following the services, this plaque is placed at the cemetery as a temporary grave marker until the permanent marker arrives. It is then washed, and returned to the family as a keepsake.
