Let's face it, most people don't like to think about death. But something as important as the end of life is significant and worthy of contemplation.
When you stop to think about it, we think about and plan celebrations for most of life's milestones: births and birthdays, graduations, engagements, marriage and anniversaries, promotions at work and retirement; just to mention a few. It's how we let those we love know they matter to us.
When it comes to that final celebration of a life well-lived, however, more and more people today are failing to see the significance of gathering family, co-workers and friends for that one final celebration.
Are we just too busy? Is it the money? Is it that if we don't think about death, it won't happen? Is it because they told us they didn't want a funeral service? That didn't stop us before when they said, "Oh, don't make a big fuss about my birthday." We planned a nice birthday celebration anyway... and they loved it!
At Adamson, we believe every life is important and should be celebrated. It is something we should think about and plan for. It's our chance to gather together to support one another; but more importantly, it's our opportunity to say, "goodbye" and to celebrate the life and to honor the memories. Think about it!
