Celebrating a Life and Mourning a Death can many times be a fine line. Yes, we mourn. But we also celebrate. We celebrate the time we did have with our loved one. We celebrate the impact their living and dying will forever make on our life.
There is no wrong or right way to celebrate as long as we indeed, do celebrate. Many families wish to maintain a more traditional celebration that would be held at a funeral home, cemetery or place of worship. Others wish to celebrate their loved one’s life in a more relaxed, not so stuffy fashion.
We encourage and support families that choose to have celebrations at a private home, the beach, a favorite park, a restaurant or maybe over drinks on their loved one’s boat. Again, there is no right or wrong way to plan. The main thing is to always remember that whatever your choices are, that you have peace with those choices. You are only going to do this once, so we encourage you to take your time and plan a Celebration of Life that is fitting for your loved one and the legacy they leave behind.
