Celebrating a Life

When you lose someone you care deeply about, it can be very rewarding to take the time to celebrate their life’s journey, their special gifts, and all they did during their lifetime for all those they met along the way.

We are here to help you commemorate the life of your loved one, and promise to work closely with you, and within your budget, to ensure your loved one’s memory lives on. Please take the time to review our personalization services below or contact us today to discuss the possibilities.

Book of Memories™ Memorial Tribute Page

The Book of Memories™  memorial website will ensure that the stories, photos, and memories of your loved one remain accessible. In this way, we help families build a priceless legacy for future generations.

To learn more about the Book of Memories™, call us to speak with one of our funeral professionals.
 

Digital Tribute Videos

Our professional editing software combines your photos and videos with beautiful music to create a DVD tribute for presentation at the commemorative service, as well as for your family to treasure long into the future. To learn more about this service, call us.
 

Personalized Printing Services

You may wish to send your guests home with a treasured keepsake to commemorate your loved one’s life.  Our memorial stationery includes bookmarks, service programs, prayer cards, and folders which can be customized with a favorite photo, poem or a specially-written tribute to your loved one. One of our funeral professionals would love to speak with you about this unique way to create personalized print keepsakes. Call or email us today.

 

Letting the Public Know a Death Has Occurred

It’s common, and unfortunate. Often, people don’t hear about a passing or learn about it too late to attend the service, send flowers, or a sympathy gift to the family.

But with Speaks Chapels, it doesn’t have to be that way. We will work hard to ensure everyone in your loved one’s community gets a chance to say a final goodbye and show their support through both traditional newsprint obituaries and electronic media. Let us take a few minutes of your time to explain this service. Call a Speaks Chapels professional to learn more at 816-252-7900.
 

We are Here to Listen and Serve

The staff of Speaks Chapels has years of experience and many wonderful commemoration and celebration of life ideas to share. If you would like more information on any of our services, or would like to discuss how we can work together to create a moving memorial service in honor of your loved one, please contact us.
