Other Suggestions

  • Send a birth/death announcement to tell others what has happened.
  • Choose a small place with an informal atmosphere or an outdoor setting to hold the service.
  • Delay the service until the mother can attend or hold it in her hospital room.
  • Dress the casket as if it were a bassinet.
  • Ask someone to take photos, record the service on tape or video for future listening if desired.
  • Place items such as pictures of family members or letters from family and friends in the casket.
  • Consider releasing balloons with written messages placed inside before inflation; butterflies or doves at the end of the ceremony. (Check state and local regulations on such releases.)
  • Hold a candle lighting ceremony at the beginning or the end of the service.

 

When One Twin Dies

  • Consider having the surviving twin baptized at the sibling.s memorial service if possible as a way of celebrating their twinship and as the last event they can be part of together.
