Big-0 Celebrations are for those aged 80 or 90 years young to a marvellous century or beyond.
Roasts see the person being celebrated as the focus of of warm-hearted humour and admiration. It usually includes a bit of ribbing at the Roastee’s expense. They’re
not for everyone.
Beside Tributes known as Warm Heart, Warm Words Ceremonies are held for those who are nearing the end of this life’s journey. It is a time for loved ones to share their loving thoughts and gratitude whilst in the presence of the person who wants to be around for and hear what others have to say about them
Funerals and Memorials have no hard and fast rules that you or your family must follow. However, religious, social, moral and cultural factors may influence the way you or your loved one’s life is celebrated or commemorated after death.
In some circumstances, for some individuals, funerals or memorials as commemorations are fitting. In other circumstances, for others funerals or memorials as celebrations might be considered more fitting.
There are an endless array of possibilities when commemorating or celebrating a loved one’s life. There is no one right way to pay your respects to someone you love. If it suits your loved one and suits your family then you are on the right track.
What YOU want is what matters. There is no right way or wrong way to celebrate the life of your loved one. A Lifetime and End of Life Celebrant’s role is to support you in the creation of a ceremony, service or memorial – where and when you want it (within the realms of what’s legal – that’s pretty much the only boundary that ought exist).
