There’s a new trend honoring your loved ones that have passed.

Lately, there has been a growing change in the way families and friends honor a loved one who has passed on.  More and more people are looking into cremation after they pass on—in fact, over 60% of Californians are looking to cremation over burial. A part of this rise in popularity can be attributed to the changing notions on how funerals are conducted, the purpose they serve and the effect they have.


What is a Celebration of Life Ceremony?

Celebrations of Life are a fresh, unique affair of reminiscing about your favorite memories, telling stories and toasts, sharing in laughter and tears, and simply celebrating a life that was lived.

Why Celebration of Life?

A Celebration of Life ceremony is a way to show your gratitude towards a loved one’s life.  Instead of dwelling on grief and sadness, often focused upon during traditional funeral services, Celebration of Life ceremonies focus on the positivity and beauty of someone’s life.

How Celebration of Life Ceremonies Work

Celebrations of Life can be planned weeks, months, or years later after someone has passed on.  A Celebrations of Life could be held on a special occasion, such as birthdays or Mother’s/Father’s Day.  They can be religious or non-religious, spiritual, or non-denominational.
