Video Tributes- We at Harwood Home for Funerals would like to use family photos to help you remember your loved ones during special times.  Photos are arranged on a DVD allowing guests who attend the visitation the opportunity to view their living legacy.  We understand how precious and irreplaceable photos are, therefore your video is created in house and your pictures will be returned to you.  The original video is given to the family and additional copies are available for purchase.

Doves- Doves are symbols of love and bearers of peace.  White doves carry comfort to those who need comfort, and lift happy memories above on a sad day as they begin their journey home.  Sincere smiles arise from children and adults as downy white doves fly up toward the sky and spirits are uplifted.  Beautiful white doves deliver stoic tranquility to encircle a memorial service with honor and dignity in a fitting tribute.

Memorial Candles- Memorial candles can be a peaceful, soothing way to let the light of your loved one shine all year long.  Like with the videos, we request one photo of your loved on that will be returned to you.
