A Celebration of Life service is a creative and meaningful approach to memorializing a loved one. In a simple and personal way, a Celebration of Life service becomes the structure that blends traditional and non-traditional funeral elements, provides for religious and secular participation, and creates an experience for loved ones seeking a sense of peace and fulfillment.
We encourage you and your family and friends to be creative when celebrating the life of your loved one. To create a comforting Celebration of Life service, you may want to start by reflecting on the various hobbies, interests and life work that occupied your loved one. Think of it as a journey of discovery, a chance to dust off old memories and an opportunity to chronicle family history. Remembering warms our hearts and helps us to feel better. It reminds us to celebrate the life lived, not the heartbreak of a life lost.
