I have been asked to do a memorial service for a young man (20) who was on our hospice services. While I have done memorial services before, never one for someone so young. Neither he, nor his family were religious, so I need to stay more with the spiritual realm vs. a traditional service. It will be held at the funeral home.
Has anyone here attended a funeral of a young adult, and heard or been moved by anything in particular that was said or done? I am meeting with the family tomorrow or Saturday, but the family (or patient) was never at a place where they felt comfortable talking about funeral plans. How about music? Any songs in particular that stand out as being comforting? I have some in mind, but will always appreciate having more resources.
Thanks, and sorry for bringing in such a depressing thread, but I figured where else could I ask a bunch of parents of college-aged kids what they might have experienced.
