This past Sunday , a man at our church who was well-loved by everyone who knew him passedaway. I am the congregational care person so I am in charge of the Memorial Service this Friday.
In the past I have served entire meals at some of the services, but this one is at 1 pm so I will probably just serve coffee, punch, and sweets. I'm wondering what else I could do to make it special. I'm thinking of maybe having some big balloon bouquets and letting everyone release the ballooons at the end ebacuse he was such a happy and fun loving guy, but I'm not sure if that would be appropriate.
Does any one have any ideas or suggestions?
