Every death is a painful tragedy but our grief is often made worse when we leave the funeral thinking “I wish I had told her how special she was to me while she was alive”
Rather than mourn the death of a loved one after the fact, celebrate their life while they are still around to bask in the love of family and friends.
A living funeral is an interesting concept for someone who is terminally ill and raises all kinds of emotions for them, their family and friends.
It takes a special kind of person to do this and needs the agreement and loving support of their family.
It’s about spending time connecting with those with whom you have shared your life with. It gives you the opportunity to share your love and appreciation for those who have been important to you in your life.
It is a time to forgive and forget and leave your loved ones with a feeling of peace after you have left them, a true celebration of the life lived.
