Placing acknowledgments within funeral programs is not uncommon for the bereaving family members. In fact, it is a great place to indicate a global expression of gratitude to those who have been particularly helpful or supportive during a time of loss.
Generally, acknowledgment wording may be written something similar to the following:
“We would like to express our sincere gratitude and heartfelt thanks for your prayers and support during a very difficult time for our family. We sincerely appreciate your sentiments of love. -The Smith Family”
This type of message can be written on the back page of the funeral program or sometimes, it is written after the funeral order of service information. You can also send individual acknowledgments through thank you cards, if desired. Placing them inside the program however will enable you to write it once and let everyone know of your appreciation.
It’s best to use funeral program templates to create the bulletins since you will have more control over the content and where you want it to be placed. These templates are easily obtainable via a great web resource noted below in which you are able to download them immediately after purchase.
In this way, you can get started in entering your information, acknowledgments, and photos as you get the text ready. This provides you the opportunity also for last minute changes to the text or program. The templates are reasonably priced under $30.00 and can be used multiple times, if desired. You can also bring the finished file to a local office supply store for final printing or print them yourself.
