Personalized Services

It is said that pictures are worth a thousand words, and at Iles Funeral Homes we believe it.  Nothing evokes memories quite like moments in time captured in a photograph or by mementos.  Let us help you share your memories with printed material, displays and video tributes. Your efforts will be rewarded by stories and remembrances of others who come together to celebrate the life that was lived. 

Memorial Folders and Printed Material

Our graphic design department creates unique printed material for each service.  The design may include multiple photographs, artwork, poetry, spiritual verses, and obituaries in addition to biographical and service information.

Customized Acknowledgement Cards

Our graphic design department creates "thank you" notes for each service.   These cards may contain a simple sentiment, or something more ornate.  We strive to reflect the personality of each family.  Because we create these cards in house, you can always order more if you need them.

Our graphic design department creates a unique register book for each service.  The book includes a photograph and biographical history in addition to service information.  The book may also include a pictorial floral register, and the names and addresses of those who attended the visitation and/or service.

Photo Editing and Enlargement

Our graphic design department can assist with photo editing for photographs you would like to use in conjunction with the service.  We can clean up the background for an obituary photo, or highlight someone in a group photograph.  We are able to enlarge photographs to be more visible during a visitation or service.

Video Tributes

We produce a customized video tribute for your loved one using up to 60 photos and with two or three songs selected by the family to play during your visitation or service. We provide a DVD and MP4 copy of the production for your family to take home and place a version with copyright free music on the online obituary.

Memory Boards

We provide foam backed memory boards for your family to create a collage of photographs. You can be as creative as you would like. Attendees of visitations and services always enjoy looking at the pictures, and reminiscing.


Memory Tables

Families are welcome to bring framed photographs and mementos of someone’s life. We have tables, tablecloths, easels and stands to allow for easy display of these special items.
