“I’ve told my children that when I die, release balloons in the sky to celebrate that I graduated. For me, death is a graduation.”Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Celebrations of Life
Whether a memorial, funeral, internment, scattering of ashes, or choosing a final resting place for your loved one’s urn, it’s important to acknowledge our grief, remember and honour the life of the person who is still here in memory, if not in person. We can design a ceremony that is loving, respectful, funny, and where people laugh as well as cry.
For those terminally ill or reaching their final stages of life, we can create a living memorial in a traditional or non-traditional venue, hospital, hospice or at home with family and friends. Memorials can have significant healing impact by re-enacting memories, fun stories, what was wonderful about their life.
Animals are as much family members as children. Whether we mark their arrival with a welcoming and naming ceremony or honour service dogs as they retire from working lives, ceremonies for animal companions give us the opportunity to give a name, recognize value, pay tribute with storytelling or create a lasting memorial.
“We’ll collect the moments one by one. I guess that’s how the future’s done.”Feist, “Mushaboom”
