Hearing the voices and seeing the faces of friends and family as they tell personal stories about the person you lost can be incredibly moving. Watching each person express gratitude, condolences, and memories of how your loved one impacted their lives can be intensely emotional and healing.

What to Say in a Memorial Video
No one can recapitulate a lifetime of memories and feelings in one video. But you can honor someone’s memory by expressing some valued highlights of your time with them. Remember, it’s okay to laugh and cry when rejoicing the life of your loved one, even on video.
Here are some more creative ideas to help create a memorable memorial video.
Compliment Their Best Qualities
What are some of your loved one’s best, most superior qualities? Choose qualities that truly portray who the person was. Share what those gestures meant to you and others and how they affected the world around them.
Express Your Gratitude
Talk about the time when you are feeling best with your loved one. Is there something positive they did that changed your life, or even for a minute, for the better? Were they there for you when
you needed them the most or during hard times? Did they make you feel special or happy most of the time? The greatest tribute we can give to our loved ones who have passed away is not grief but gratitude.
Share a Lesson They Taught You
Did your loved one teach you an important lesson about life that you’ll never forget? They may have had a favorite saying you always hear in your head, or maybe they showed you how to do something like tying your shoes, making pancakes, or recording something on the DVR. Whatever the case, the lessons you learned from them are something you’ll cherish forever.
Tell a Meaningful Story
Why not transport yourself back to a meaningful moment you shared with your loved one through storytelling? “This one time…” is a great way to start your memorial video. Telling a story will help involve other people and make them feel like they’re part of a memorable experience with someone you all love and miss.
Honor Your Loved One from a Distance
On the heels of a pandemic, many of us have become familiar with sending our love from a distance. Without quarantines, there are still plenty of reasons why someone might need to miss a memorial or funeral. The great thing about creating a memorial video is that it’s easy to do both: collaborate and share.
- Ask friends and family to contribute to the video to make it more personal and significant.
By adding their video message, your loved ones can be included in the memorial video, even if they can’t attend the service.
- Once the video is finished, share it with friends and family.
You can easily send the memorial video to loved ones near and far. This way, everyone can remember and celebrate the life of their loved ones.
