3 Steps to a succesful goodwill-building memory candle program

The average funeral home using the CK Memory Candle program uses 2 to 3 candles per service. The first one is given to the family; the rest are puchased by family members or close friends. After selling hundreds of thousands of candles to funeral homes over the past 13 years, Chris Nerison, the creator of the CK Memory Candle, recommends these three steps.

  1. A memory candle should be made for every service for which the family provides a photo. Depending on the policies in place in your office, the candle need not be discussed at the arrangement conference, but simply provided for the visitation and funeral service.
  2. Display the finished candle at the visitation and funeral service. Choose an appropriate location, such as next to the register book or near the casket. Pick a place the family and those attending the service will notice.
  3. Keep track of the responses. Not every memory candle you make will lead to additional sales, but every candle will be warmly received. No one throws away a CK Memory Candle!
