Celebration of Life Memorial
A celebration of life memorial is a service for family and friends to honor their loved one who has passed away, but in a more personal and non-traditional approach. Instead of mourning the individual's death, guests celebrate the joy he/she brought into everyday living. This type of informal memorial service is a more positive and refreshing change to the somber funeral service.
This type of service typically held anytime after the deceased individual's burial or cremation. However trends are showing it is becoming more common to host this type of gathering in place of a traditional funeral.
