It was the Dalai Lama who said “My religion is simple; my religion is kindness” The best funerals offer that kindness plus love and support to the grieving process. It is the opportunity for family and friends to share memories and say goodbye to their loved one. Those we love don’t go away they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed but always dear.
The death of a loved one is always a difficult time in any family’s life however, those feelings of sadness and loss can be someway alleviated by an end of life celebration that reflects the very essence of that person. The ceremony is guided by the wishes, values and beliefs of both the family and their loved one.
Nothing will be said during the ceremony that hasn’t been approved by you prior to the funeral.
A lot of people don’t know that there are alternatives to the usual funeral ceremony held at a crematorium.
Many crematoriums allow 30 minutes for a funeral service, this obviously limits the content of the ceremony, however having the ceremony in an alternative venue enables you to have exactly what you want.
The celebration of life ceremony can take place in any venue, this can form part of the social gathering of family and friends that traditionally follow a funeral service.
It also means you can have ceremony at your own home, in your garden or your loved ones favourite place.
