Today’s Funeral Register Books

Posted on July 28, 2018 in Uncategorized

Funeral register books are the first thing friends and family members who come to the funeral home will see. As they arrive to offer their sympathy and to comfort, they sign their names in the register book as a reminder of their presence.

Historically, the register books were often just a simple notebook type volume with lined pages where visitors signed their names. The book served the function of assuring the mourners that the family would know that they cared enough to attend the visitation. Additionally, families often used the books to use as a guide to write thank you cards to those who attended the services.

While the simplicity of a register with spaces just for signatures, is all that was needed in the past, many bereaved family members wish to personalize all of the funeral stationery to have a more complete life celebration.

Today, funeral register books can be much more than a simple journal of signatures and dates. With the trend toward personalization of every detail of a funeral, from the visitation to the service and eulogy, the book has evolved from a mere record book to a medium in which visitors and the family can express themselves. It has become a memorial in itself to the life of your loved one.

Funeral register books are now a collaborative memento that will bring comfort to you long after the service is over. Starting with the cover of the register, there are many selections appropriate for both sexes and all ages. Some new style books even enable the family to include a favorite photo. The inner pages, where guests sign their names may also include space to write personal condolences, tell stories or recall favorite memories. The family can also include additional pages with a favorite poem or lyrics to a special song. Also, photographs with captions can be included too. All of the pages of the register book will carry the same theme that will be used on all the other funeral stationery making a wonderful collection of cohesive stationery. Each piece will be a special, unique funeral keepsake.

Now as family and friends sign the funeral register book, they are encouraged to include comments on the photos, and share significant memories of their loved one. The funeral register book can now be more than just a record keeping device it can be a memento that captures stories about specific times in a loved one’s life, shared memories and special events.

As you read what visitors have written, you may see some tributes that surprise you, or some that remind you of the ways in which your loved one touched others’ lives. Others will bring you comfort or, perhaps, evoke memories that you have forgotten.

However you approach the personalization of your funeral register book, it can become a memento that you will cherish and look at often.

Comfort On Airplanes – How To Dress For A Long Flight

Posted on July 13, 2018 in Uncategorized

Any journey that is longer than 4-5 hours is supposed to make you a bit uncomfortable. Even if you have booked the best deal of cheap flights for your journey, traveling on a long-distance flight binds you at a fixed seat for several hours. That is why, it is important for you to keep yourself comfortable and relaxed while traveling on a long flight. For this, the first thing you should do is to wear comfortable clothes.

Wear loose fitting clothes
Avoid wearing tight clothes during a long flight, as you may start feeling uneasy after 2-3 hours. Wearing loose fitting clothes, instead of the tight ones, will allow you to stay relaxed during your worldwide flights.

Pay attention to your shoes
Avoid wearing shoes on a long flight, as it may be confining and your feet may swell. It is also important to allow air to pass through your feet. Do not wear high heels, as it may cause your feet to swell. Try to wear loose fitting slippers or sandals, so that you can slip them out while sitting on your seat. This will prevent pain that may happen after a long confined journey. The best footwear recommended for a long flight are tennis shoes and sneakers.

Tips for business travelers
Even if you are going for a business flight, do not wear your formal business attire during the journey, as it may make you utterly uncomfortable. Wearing a three piece suit on a long travel is obviously not a wise choice. Try to reach the destination at least a few hours before your business meeting, so that you get enough time to reach your hotel and change your clothes. Being restricted for a long period of time may make you extremely uncomfortable and cranky.

Tips for vacationers
Vacationers may choose to have an easier time during long worldwide flights. Remember that on a long flight, the best clothes you can wear should be made of cotton or a soft fabric. If you choose to wear jeans, make sure that they are loose fitting, and are not too tight and confining. Tight jeans will not allow you to breathe easy during the entire flight. Soft fabrics like sweats are best, as they allow you to breathe easy and do not confine your movements. If you are wearing a shirt, make sure that it is loose enough to allow you to move freely.

Layering your clothes
If you have chosen to book cheap flights, then may be your luggage capacity is limited. However, wearing layers of clothes in order to avoid over-luggage is not a wise choice. Though most worldwide flights have air conditioning systems, wearing too many clothes may make you too hot inside the plane. Therefore, the best thing you can do is to wear whatever you are most comfortable in.

Clothes that you feel most comfortable in at home are the best clothes to wear on a long distance flight. Remember that nobody looks good on a long journey. So, you do not need to worry much about your appearance. Just be as comfortable with your clothes as possible.
