The choices for personalizing funeral stationery have increased due to advanced funeral software. Often client families look for top funeral poems to include on their loved one’s stationery.


Thank you notes, prayer cards, memorial folders and other funeral stationery have come a long way in the last five to ten years. Gone are the standard selection of choices for client families. With new funeral technology, funeral professionals can create customized funeral stationery in-house, on-demand. Printing from blank stock, the level of personalization available today is higher than ever.


Frazer Consultants’ new Life Journey Celebration Stationery has over 500 coordinating themes to assist your families in their life celebration. With our print-on-demand system, using blank-stock and our Tribute Center software, you are now able to provide your families with personalized funeral stationery that matches any interest, hobby, occupation, or religious background.


Each theme includes a layout for a funeral register book, memorial folder, prayer card, acknowledgment, bookmark, sign, DVD packaging, and a candle. Frazer Consultants’ Tribute Center software stores all the themes electronically. You simply inventory the blank stock and print-on-demand what you need, when you need it.


With so much more flexibility now available for the personalization of the funeral stationery, client families are wishing to include funeral poems, verses from songs and other special sentiments.


Here are two top funeral poems client families often select to include on their loved one’s funeral stationery.


I Did Not Die
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.

Goodbye My Friend
Though we never know
Where life will take us,
I know it’s just a ride
On the wheel.
And we never know
When death will shake us
And we wonder how
It will feel.

So Goodbye my friend.
I know I’ll never see you again.
But the time together
Through all the years,
Will take away these tears.
It’s OK now – Goodbye my friend.
I see a lot of things
That make me crazy,
And I guess I held on to you,
You could have run away
And left — well maybe,
But it wasn’t time
And we both knew.

So Goodbye My friend.
I know I’ll never see you again.
But the love you gave me
Through all the years
Will take away these tears.
I’m OK now — Goodbye my friend.
