Celebrating A Life

When you lose someone you care deeply about, it can be profoundly healing to take the time to celebrate their life’s journey, their special gifts, and all they did during their lifetime for all those they met along the way.

We are here to help you commemorate the life of your loved one, and promise to work closely with you, so that many of the family friends get a look into the life you know, but others rarely get a chance to see. Please take the time to review some of our many Personalization Services below or contact us today to discuss the possibilities.

Digital DVD Memorial Presentation Tributes

Our professional editing software combines your photos and videos with or without beautiful music to create a DVD Presentation for display at the commemorative service, as well as for your family to treasure long into the future. To learn more about this service, call us.

Personalized Printing Services

Like most families you may wish your family and friends to have a treasured keepsake to reflect on the meaning of their life.  Our memorial bookmarks, service programs, prayer cards, and folders can be customized with a favorite photo, poem or a specially-written tribute. One of our funeral professionals can speak with you about this unique way to create personalized print keepsakes. Call or email us today.

Live Funeral Webcasting

In today’s world, it’s not uncommon for friends and family to live in another state, or even another country. Perhaps someone who would like to attend the funeral or memorial service is too ill to travel. Our webcasting service will bring the service to them, with real-time streaming video over the Internet. You can also use our webcasting to create a keepsake recording of the service. If you would like to explore this opportunity, please call us.

Letting the Public Know a Death Has Occurred

It’s common, and unfortunate, but often people don’t hear about a passing or they learn about it too late to attend the service, send flowers, or a sympathy gift to the family.

But with Fred C. Dames Funeral Home, it doesn’t have to be that way. We will diligently pursue, through every means available to us, and to the greatest extent possible, in trying to reach everyone in our community so they get a chance to  show their support.  Let us take a few minutes of your time to explain this service. Call a Fred C. Dames Funeral Home professional to learn more either at our Joliet location (815) 741-5500 or our Morris location at (815) 942-5040
