Funeral services at Grace Funeral & Cremation Services are designed based on your needs and reflect the uniqueness of your loved one. We’ve created a caring, supportive environment and offer an extensive range of service and product options customized to each individual as well as your family’s budget. It’s important to take the time to acknowledge the uniqueness of the deceased: the individuality of their personality, and the uniqueness of their life's path. Not just for them, but for you; it affirms the relationship, and leads to healing after loss. Honoring their life is truly an act of love – for the both of you.
It's All about the Relationship
Honoring the life of your loved one through ceremony speaks directly to the relationship you shared. We can help you decide how best to honor the person you’ve lost, and celebrate your relationship. We will make suggestions based on our experience that will enhance your ideas and create a fitting, memorable event. Grace Funeral & Cremation Services is the only funeral home in Rockford with a Certified Funeral Celebrant on staff. Our Celebrant is specifically trained to design a service for your loved one that is completely personal, incorporating unique stories and experiences into the service. Your family will have the opportunity to share memories, anecdotes and special moments with our Celebrant which will help determine the essence of the funeral, memorial or life celebration service. More information about Certified Celebrant services can be found here: https://www.insightbooks.com/celebrants.
Our Video Production staff will blend your treasured family photos and home movies with text and narration to produce a professional life movie. It will be the focal point of the funeral or memorial gathering. Once the ceremony is but a memory, the video becomes a family keepsake. We can also make copies as gifts for family and friends.
Taking your special family photos, meaningful verses, and your loved one's unique life story, our graphic design team will create service programs, prayer cards, and memorial folders which add a subtle dimension of caring to your ceremony, and give your guests a treasured keepsake.
The traditional print obituary is quickly being replaced by online memorial websites. We'll create a totally interactive website in honor of your loved one, which can be archived online forever. You can update site content easily, with well-loved photographs, not-to-be-forgotten stories, and engaging home movies.
Live Funeral Webcasting
The newest innovation in funeral service, Webcasting, allows your family and friends to join in your loved one's memorial or funeral service, through streaming video over the Internet. This video can be viewed live online, archived for delayed viewing, and downloaded to DVD for a permanent keepsake. Webcasting is a complimentary service offered to all of our client families.
