How Funeral Candles Have Evolved
By Matt Frazer
The flame of a funeral candle burning in a chapel draws
mourners in to it's glow. The comforting flicker, it's
symbolism of a warm embrace and the light itself
inspires hope for the future. To some, the memorial
candle even becomes a representation of the spirit of
the person who has passed away. Obviously, funeral
candles are a powerful part of any funeral or memorial
Historically, funeral candles were nothing more than
ordinary candles perhaps with a ribbon attached or
placed in an elaborate candelabra in a prominent place
for the ceremony. However, mourners desire to more
completely celebrate their loved ones life has pushed
the funeral industry to move to create more personal
keepsakes. The days of plain, white candles with a
simple ribbon are a thing of the past. Families want
more out of their tribute candles.
The challenge to meet or exceed client families wishes
lies within the hands of the funeral director. Caught
between helping a family craft their loved ones life
celebration into everything that they imagined while
controlling time and cost constraints, funeral directors
need help. Using top notch funeral technology to assist
them in performing tedious tasks, is an excellent
solution. Instead of personalized keepsake candles
becoming a dreadful chore, it's an opportunity to make a
lasting impression on a family.
