Memorialization changes?

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

I was reading an article in the latest issue of Funeral Business Advisor and the author was discussing the new changes in the future for memorialization, specifically DVD memorials. She indicated that the younger generations will not want to have a disc to keep track of their loved one. They will want something that is mobile and can be accessed from a phone, Ipad and away from home. This method of memorialization would change years of creating keepsakes for families, but would it increase time to create and still generate sufficient revenue? You certainly wouldn’t have to keep an inventory of blank DVD’s on hand, but you may have to be more tech savvy. There are some companies already offering this solution where the product is created by the FD or family member and can be changed, updated and even sent to other friends and family members. As families become younger and demand increases, this may be an inevitable change.
