THE LOSS of a LOVED ONE …
… can be one of life’s most profound and
life changing experiences.
More than an ending though, funerals and
life celebrations are bridges of transition.
Consider that the words spoken and feelings experienced during the visitation and the Celebration service help take us from the tragedy of the death to a place of fond memory and deep appreciation for the person whose life we're remembering.
HOW WE HELP
Once you've made final arrangements with a funeral home, call us.
We'll liaise with the Funeral Directors and meet with your family personally in the days leading up to the Service to gather life stories, reflections and treasured memories in an unhurried manner to ensure accuracy, warmth and meaning.
Your family's Ceremony is treated as a unique occasion to honour your loved one’s memory, and the ceremony itself helps the grief process occur naturally while saying goodbye.
OUR APPROACH …
We present a personalized, comforting and uplifting ceremony affirming the significance of your loved one’s life.
Whether your family chooses a religious, spiritual, contemporary or religiously neutral service, we are guided by the beliefs, traditions and customs of your family.
We believe a Life Remembrance Service should leave each person attending with the thought that they’ve participated in an event of very special meaning.
