“Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy.” ~ Eskimo Legend
A Memorial Service is a unique way to honor the memory of a loved one who has died, to express love and affection and most of all to Celebrate a Life. A Memorial Service is a ceremony held some time after death; the body is not present at a Memorial Service as it is at a funeral service. A contemporary term used for the Memorial Service is a Celebration of Life ceremony.
Planning a Memorial or Celebration of Life ceremony takes a bit of time, yet it can be a wonderful way of expressing one’s love and affection in a meaningful commemorative ceremony.
We are honored to spend time with bereaved family members to create a service that allows guests to express both their sorrow about their loss and their joy in the experience of the deceased as they lived. Memorial Services/Life Celebrations are an opportunity for healing broken hearts by gathering in community to share memories, stories, laughter and tears. All Memorial Services are created with reverence and deference to the family’s religious and spiritual traditions as requested.
