What is a Celebration of Life Service?
Every day, we hear stories about how people are struggling to find meaningful ways to honor a loved one who has been cremated. Somehow they think that cremation means there can be no remembrance service, or commemorative event – and that’s simply not true.

A cremation Celebration of Life service simply sets aside time to celebrate the personality and accomplishments of someone you loved. And, it gives comfort and support to those left behind. It can take place prior to the cremation, or afterwards. It can also be part of a scattering ceremony.

Here are some popular places for Celebration of Life services:

  • Adamson Chapel - formal or informal
  • Adamson Reception Center - memorial reception
  • The Family Residence
  • A Place of Worship
  • A Neighborhood Clubhouse
  • A Favorite Restaurant
  • During a Family Reunion
  •  A Local Park
  • A Golf Course
  • A Mountain Cabin
  • A Favorite Family Vacation Spot

The cremation ceremony you create should be full of experiences: sights, sounds, word, music; good food, and good friends. You could incorporate:

  • A memorial reception or luncheon
  • A photo slideshow of your loved one's life
  • A playlist of favorite songs
  • A time for guests to come forward to tell stories: they could light a candle before or after the story has been shared.
  • Scattering the cremated remains during the ceremony
  • Distributing cremated remains in small containers so that family and guests take a memento to keep.
  • Placing a small amount of cremated remains in a floatable, biodegradable structure, to be released into water
  • Arranging for bagpipes or a dove release
  • Gathering friends for a tree planting, garden or special spot in honor of your loved one

     

THINK!    CREATE!    INSPIRE!

At Adamson, we think these three words are important to consider when planning a service of remembrance.

THINK - Most people don't like to think about death, but we believe it is important to think about the kind of service that would best represent your life and provide maximum comfort for those you leave behind.

CREATE - Just as every life is unique, every remembrance service should reflect that uniqueness.   Cookie cutter and one-size-fits-all services are no longer providing meaning and often come across as superficial.  What would the perfect service for you or your loved one look like?  Where would it be held?  With a little effort you can create a truly memorable experience for those that attend. 

INSPIRE - A well-planned funeral will be inspiring!  Hearing stories at a remembrance service about lives well-lived can inspire us all to be better parents, grandparents, co-workers and friends; and can motivate us to make each day count!
