What do you think of when you hear the word funeral? The word is defined and interpreted differently based on what you have been told or have experienced. Funerals are for the living. The process of planning a funeral is the beginning of the grieving process. It’s an opportunity to celebrate our loved one and how they lived their life. When we include our family and closest friends in this process, we can have a fitting tribute that will not be forgotten. Funerals or memorial services don’t have to be elaborate or expensive to be meaningful to those in attendance.
