Home Blog Living Funerals Provide a Unique Way to Say Goodbye

Many people often wonder what it would be like to attend their own funeral and hear what those who were close to them have to say. For those who are in poor health or old age and realize that the end of their life is coming soon, they now have an opportunity to celebrate their lives in a proper fashion. Known as living funerals, these events offer the chance for friends and family to recognize and honor their loved ones in person.

While it may seem out of the ordinary to be present at your own funeral, this type of event is gaining in popularity because of all it has to offer. Rather than mourning someone who has already passed, family members and friends have the opportunity to share old stories, go through photo albums, and celebrate special moments. This is a fitting way to show appreciation to a loved one who has meant so much to you.

Compared more to a reunion where old friends reminisce, living funerals allow people to see how much they have meant to others and to celebrate the happy memories from their life. The atmosphere is joyous, and the goal is to celebrate life, show appreciation and give thanks. It also provides the opportunity for the guest of honor to speak and recognize those in attendance for their support throughout their life.

A living funeral is typically held in the same fashion as a traditional one, but they are less expensive. The evening can just be a simple gathering with food and drinks in a quiet and serene setting. Living funerals can be a meaningful moment in the guest of honor’s life and can provide great closure for everyone involved.
