Create a guestbook
A guestbook is a book with blank pages that allows guests to write things they may not have had the chance to say to the deceased or surviving family.
It also helps you see who attended the funeral service, and organize sending thank you cards, if you plan on doing so.
Typically, these books are kept near the entrance of the funeral home, or event venue, so guests can easily write when convenient.
An online guestbook also helps those who were unable to attend express their condolences remotely. You can invite friends and family to participate virtually by creating a free Memorial website from Autumn.
Good to Know Funeral homes may sell guestbooks as part of their service package, but you do not need to purchase it from them. Compare designs and prices between the funeral home, local stationary stores and online retailers, who all offer the opportunity for customization.
