Celebrating A Loved One's Life

Many families today want a service which celebrates the life of their deceased loved one. We introduce them to the concept of a Celebration of Life, and provide support in designing a Celebration of Life event that is as unique as the life of their deceased loved one.

We always enjoy working together with families in planning a Celebration of Life for their deceased loved one. While it can be a challenge to put together an event that both pays tribute to and celebrates the life and spirit of a complex individual, it's also one of the most rewarding things any one of us can do for someone we've loved and lost.

Cheers For The Years

Who, Where and How

Who is the celebration of life for? While it is important to celebrate the life of the deceased, you need to remember that the event is not for them. Its main purpose is to allow the family to say goodbye, give them closure, and begin the healing process.

Where will this event take place? A celebration of life can take place just about anywhere. Many families often hold them at a ball room of a yacht club, golf club, hotel or the deceased’s home as these venues often offer a beautiful space for family and friends to gather. In the Okanagan Valley there are many vineyards that could act as a beautiful venue.

How will you honour your loved one at the event? This is when you can begin thinking about what you would like the celebration to include.

NO TEARS... JUST CHEERS!

While Celebrations of Life are not burdened by social expectations—they can be pretty much anything you want them to be…

It's important to realize that the event you're planning should meet the emotional needs of the guests.

So think about exactly who will be there, and what they're likely to want or need. Then bring in those unique lifestyle and personality characteristics of your loved one.

Perhaps add live music or refreshments, and you've got the beginnings of a remarkable Celebration of Life event.

Celebrations of Life are intended to lift everyone's spirits by focusing on positive memories.

Check out our great team!
