Celebration of Life
A warm goodbye and reflection of lifetime memories.
The celebration of life is also a way to say goodbye to a loved one, but instead of a formal ceremony, it’s a get-together with a more casual atmosphere. The celebration of life is less formal, structured, and doesn’t follow any religious rites and requirements.
A celebration of life helps people mourn but also encourages people to focus on the positive aspects of the life lived. Grieving loved ones speak about their experiences and memories of their loved one, console each other, and just spend time sharing their grief. The environment is relaxed and the memorialization is personal. As the name implies, people spend their time celebrating a life instead of mourning a death. Unlike a traditional funeral, the celebration of life ceremony can be held weeks and even months after the loved one has passed away.
A Celebration of Life can take place virtually anywhere at anytime, from the very simple, to very lavish including locations such as churches, banquet halls, cemeteries, wineries, hotel facilities, golf clubs, museums and parks. The possibilities are endless and the cost can range from no charge, to there being a venue fee (depending on location, food etc).
