The tradition of providing those attending the funeral with a sympathy card comes from Catholic traditions about the prayer card. Plain prayer cards, not related to funerals or memorials, are still found today. A growing trend at funeral services is providing a prayer card or a memorial as a token for each person attending the funeral, acting as a personal reminder.
As a further reminder of the deceased, families often produce a funeral prayer card that is distributed to all the attendees at a funeral. After the funeral, it is common for individuals to put memorial cards into their Bibles or prayer books to remind them of a loved one who has been lost. Memorial Prayer Cards, Funeral Mass Cards, Funeral Bookmarks, and Obituary Cards are typically covered in laminated material or printed on synthetic materials, making them water-resistant and durable, creating a nice, long-lasting memorial. Typically, Catholic funeral prayer cards feature a religious image on one side, while a smaller photo of the deceased, their names, birthdates, and death dates are displayed on the other.
A prayer card or memorial can be personalized to feature an image of the deceased on one side, or a different image showing something that was significant to him during his lifetime, with a special poem or prayer printed on the back. Another option is to have a photo of your loved one on the front of the card with the poem or prayer that you chose printed on the back of the card.
