Honoring Life

Honoring Life

Honoring the achievements of your loved ones and celebrating the life you shared together are cornerstones of healing after loss. Honoring the life of your loved one means you value the relationship you shared. You knew your loved one better than anyone else. We’ve got years of experience. Together, we will design the perfect memorial or funeral service for your loved one. We look forward to helping you decide how to celebrate that bond, and honor the unique individuals you’ve lost. We can make suggestions to enhance your tribute ideas. Together we will create a fitting and memorable event.

How To Honor A Life

It’s all about bringing those you love together, at a time of loss. It’s a natural thing to do, and over time, has become a socially-expected practice. More importantly, a funeral or memorial service, whether traditional, or contemporary, is the first step in healing.

There are two facets of the design process. First, we ask you to consider how you wish to honor and celebrate the life. When those important decisions are made, we’ll turn to the issue of how you wish to care for the physical remains.

You can have your service anywhere, and any way, you want. Your choices include the place of celebration, day of the week and time of day, the musical selection, what prayers will be said or songs you’d like sung. We are here to help you create the most memorable and meaningful service to honor your loved one.

Your next consideration focuses on choosing between burial and cremation. Usually, people are clear on this point. In fact, your loved one may have told you, or someone else, exactly how they wish to be cared for. But it can be a hard decision for some families, especially when the wishes of the deceased were never clearly stated. If that is the case, please know we are able to help you come to the perfect decision for you loved one, and for you.

You Can Never Go Back And Do It Over

Some may think it is harsh to remind you of this, but we know we must. All too often, families discount the value of a ceremony after the death of a loved one, and we certainly do not want you to make that mistake. Coming together after a loss is a very essential part of the grieving process. We want you to honor your loved one in a way that allows you to look back, years from now, and be thankful that you did the best you could to honor their life. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved them is a gift to everyone involved: A gift of memories; a gift of healing; and a priceless gift of peace-of-mind.
