Ceremony is a way to inform the community of a loved one's passing, tell their story, and celebrate their life. Whether simple or elaborate, traditional or contemporary, a ceremony is most meaningful when it reflects your loved one's relationships, hobbies, and the moments you shared together.
Memorializing your loved one may include one or any combination of the following choices:
A community gathering, visitation, and personalized tribute that occurs prior to cremation. This is a time for family and friends to visit, share memories, and show support.
A community gathering following cremation. A meaningful program invites family and friends to visit and reflect on the moments they shared with your loved one.
A small gathering and informal identification takes place in a private setting and allows the opportunity to say goodbye prior to cremation.
These options are intended to provide guidance in designing the desired personalized tribute.
