Death is never going to be easy, but the services that happen after cremation in Lewisville, TX don’t have to be sad, traditional funerals where everyone wears black. There are options today, including a celebration of life. If you’d prefer to remember your loved one for the life they lived in such a good manner over the death that caused them to pass on, a celebration of life service is a great fit.
What Is A Celebration Of Life?
To organize the right type of event, you first have to understand what a celebration of life really is. Funerals are often somber events that offer people a chance to say goodbye. Celebrations of life, however, reflect joy and remember a person for the brightness they brought to the world. Instead of thinking about loss, they emphasize happy memories and good times in that person’s life. It’s often comforting to share memories, funny stories, and even some laughs after a person passes away. Some people call these celebrations ‘happy funerals’ as those gathered express what the person meant to them and say goodbye in a more positive way.
While regular funerals have a certain order to them and things that generally take place in all of them, celebrations of life have endless options. If your loved one was cremated, you can have the celebration of life in the funeral home, a church, a family home, a park, or anywhere else. You can spend time talking about the happy times and bringing up memories or you can have a dance party to their favorite music. You can even gather the family at a baseball game or some other event they loved while they were there.
The Planning Process
If you want to remember the life well-lived, planning a celebration of life can be good for you and your family members. You want to make sure everyone who might attend knows what kind of event you are hosting so they can prepare themselves. You don’t want anyone to feel out of place in a suit and tie if you want people to come in bright clothes or casual attire. Make the event style clear and if you have anything that they might want to think about in advance, like special memories, tell them about that as well.
