Memorial Service Readings

Reading for Memorial Tributes

Choosing readings for memorial or funeral tributes are essential to the funeral planning process, making your loved one’s service more memorable. 

You can choose from many readings – poems, resolutions, bible readings, and more. 

To choose the best readings, decide what kind of service you want to plan. Based on that, choosing a reading becomes more manageable. 

Here are three popular types of readings we suggest here at Peninsula Funeral Home. 

Bible Readings 

Bible passages and verses can be an excellent option to add to your loved one’s memorial service. The Bible contains inspirational words and passages to help you and your loved ones have more comfort and peace. 


Poems can be an effective and sincere way to express your deepest feelings for your loved one. They can have the power to touch people’s hearts and show love the way bare words can never do. 

You’ll be amazed how many beautiful, touching poems online will be perfect for your loved one’s funeral reading. 

Sharing Personal Memories 

Sharing a memory from the deepest part of your heart is a lovely way to remember a loved one. Some memories always make us smile every time we remember them. 

It’s a great idea to share this personal memory that you have had with your lost loved one. It will add a unique, warm touch to the funeral readings. Let it be something that comes from the deepest of your heart.
