Celebrations of Life
A celebration of life is a beautiful way to pay tribute to a loved one and celebrate their legacy.
Unlike most funerals, which tend to lean towards prayers and readings, a celebration of life is geared uniquely to the individual.
Celebrations of Life typically include:
• A gathering, formal or informal.
• Laughter, music and storytelling.
• Food and beverages.
• Toasts and speeches.
What to expect
A Celebration of Life should celebrate your loved one’s passions during this difficult time – who they were, where they lived their life, and how. It is typically less sombre than a traditional funeral, with laughter as friends and family talk about their memories of experiences with the deceased.
Non-traditional venues, such as hotel ballrooms or restaurants often offer an alternative beautiful space for loved ones and friends to gather, though traditional places of worship or the funeral home itself are still strong options.
Many funeral homes do not have this option but here at Martens Warman Funeral Home, LTD. we celebrate life with you. You don’t have to worry about funeral etiquette as this is a unique experience to commemorate your loved one.
