Celebration of Life Memorial Service

“And then I heard the angel say, ‘She’s with you every day.’” – Author Unknown

Friend, you are here due to the passing of a loved one, friend, family, parent, sister, child, brother, uncle…  We all grieve in different ways, choose different ways to pay final respects to a life, to say goodbye. We all have different beliefs, and traditions and ways we want to remember.

A celebration of life memorial service is different for every family.

Typically, a celebration of life is held after the burial or cremation of a loved one. It normally occurs a few days after the person passes, up to several weeks, or even months later. Some people choose to have a celebration of life on the anniversary of the death of the deceased.

While more traditional funeral services are held in a church, or funeral home, a Celebration of Life is often in the home of a family member, a favorite spot of the loved one, or other venue that can accommodate the space and amenities needed for the celebration.

While Stone Ridge Event Center is not funeral home, nor meant to replace one, we host celebrations for all of life’s milestones, including Celebration of Life Memorial Services, as perhaps the greatest two milestones of any life are the beginning and the end.
