If you are looking for a way to honor the life of someone who has passed away, there is no better way than with a slideshow. In this blog post, we will discuss how to create a beautiful and heartfelt slideshow that can be shared with friends and family at the funeral or memorial service.

When selecting photos for your slideshow, try to choose a mix of old and new photos.

This will give people a sense of the person's life journey. You can also use photos that show the person's interests and hobbies.

If you have any videos of the deceased, be sure to include them in your slideshow as well.

When it comes to music, try to select a song that has personal meaning for the person who passed away.

If you're not sure what song to choose, there are plenty of websites that offer free funeral and memorial songs, or your slideshow producer can provide you with suggestions.

You can even select a song that was used in the person's wedding. This will give the slideshow extra meaning for friends and family who knew them when they were married!

Another option is to use music from movies or TV shows that are meaningful to you, but also have personal significance for people attending your funeral service.

Be sure to personalize it as much as possible.

Add text that reflects the person's life and personality. You can also use memorial quotes or poems to add a touch of emotion.

If you are not confident in your ability to create a slideshow on your own, Milestone Slideshows will help you do this. We can even send you a DVD or flash drive with the final slideshow, so that it can be shown at memorial or funeral services.

We hope that this blog post has been helpful and that you will be able to create a beautiful slideshow in memory of your loved one. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at Milestone Slideshows. Thank you for reading!

I cannot think of a better tribute to my Dad than the one Kris did for me. He conveyed the care in his work that a memorial of this kind deserved and it showed. Not having to worry about the quality of work, timeliness of response and whether the person working on my memorial was the greatest gift I could be given at such an emotional time. This is way more than just a slideshow. It is an experience and one I will never forget.

So appreciative of the generous support Kris provided. Took my dozens of old photos and turned them into a beautiful, poignant product to celebrate my dear Dad's life and passing. Flexible, responsive, quick. Thank you.

I was searching and searching for the perfect place to help create the perfect slideshow for my Mom's celebration of life. And I found them!! Kris was so patient with me (for almost 2 weeks) as I was asking tons of questions, he answered them all with kindness and care. I can't thank them enough! With all my heart thank you so very much! Keep up the great work...Look no further everyone they have just what you want and so much more ☺♥


Milestone Slideshows did a beautiful job on my moms Memorial Service slideshow. Once I set up my account I received an email from Kris letting me know they were available to help with any questions I might have. Kris put the slideshow together very quickly over the weekend so it would be done in time for the service. They were so helpful and kind and I am grateful I chose them during a really difficult time. Thank you!
