Celebration of Life Service
“We are the keepers of the memories; a sacred trust given by the one who has journeyed on”
What does that mean?
It is human nature when someone we love has died; to stop, to carve out a sacred space, to remember, to reflect and to gather the memories up in a safe place, so the person we lost, will always be with us. This is the most important first step on the long and winding path of the grief journey.

A year after the death, many people hold a memorial in the deceased's honor.
An anniversary memorial service for a loved one should feel nothing like a funeral.

What is a Pet Life Celebration?
A pet funeral ceremony (Life Celebration) is similar to that of a person. It can include all of the same elements such as tributes, poetry, readings, storytelling, candle lighting, reflection, video presentation, memorabilia and music. Ceremonies can involve the family members as much or as little as you would like.
