Memorial Service Planning & Memorial Service Ideas
Unlike a traditional funeral, a memorial service is a gathering where a casket is not present (although the urn with the cremated remains may be on display). A memorial service can be held weeks or even months after the death and can serve as a valuable part of the grieving process.
Celebration of Life
What is it?
A celebration of life service is a type of end-of-life ceremony where people come together to celebrate the unique life of the deceased. Celebrations of life are commonly held after physical remains have been cared for through burial or cremation. Because of this, there is much more time available to plan the event and to make decisions about how you'd like to celebrate the life of your loved one. And without a doubt, this allows you to make better decisions about how you'd like to celebrate the life of someone you dearly loved.
A graveside service takes place after a funeral and can be a profound healing experience.
Funerals often take place at the mortuary chapel or at your place of religious worship. In that case, an internment and committal service can follow at the graveside. These are important gatherings to commemorate a life and mark the end of physical closeness. Family and friends gather to commit a loved one to the earth and say final farewells together. A committal service is symbolic and a helpful step in healing.
