You can distribute printed copies of these programs at services, or, you can send finished copies electronically through email, or post to various social media outlets or memorial websites. These templates have design graphic backgrounds, and typically contain a funeral or memorial service outline, funeral order of service,  life tribute, obituary or life sketch, remembrance poems, bible verses and scriptures, and thank you notes and acknowledgements.  Templates can also come in a variety of software program formats including Microsoft Word and Microsoft Publisher and MAC Pages.
