It’s Important To Pay Tribute
Funerals are an important part of the grieving process.
They help people confront the loss of a loved one and face a difficult reality. More importantly they allow people a chance to honour their loved one’s life.
Many experts agree; sharing grief through public displays of mourning can naturally help reduce it. Funerals provide family and community support. They allow people to share feelings and memories of a departed loved one.
Trying to ignore death often leads to an extended period of difficult grief. However, some people feel the “fuss” of a full funeral service is too much. Therefore, flexible Memorial Service options like ours, are important.
“Just Put Me In A Cardboard Box In The Backyard”
Our Memorial Services are for families who need something out of the ordinary.
Perhaps your loved one was adamant they didn’t want the ‘bother’ of a full funeral. Let us help you respect their wishes (without putting them in a cardboard box under the lemon tree as they may have requested!). And also give you the chance to grieve their loss with family and friends. Our Memorial Services allows for an unattended (no mourners), Cremation or Burial, before (or after), the Memorial Service.
And the Venue choices are broader considering there will be no coffin present. We hold Services in many amazing Venues across Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. Let us take care of the details. You simply gather to mourn and celebrate your loved one’s life.
Time of day is entirely up to you. Any time is fine. Some prefer an evening / dinner event. Possibilities abound and we’re happy for you to discuss your ideas with us.
We organise a Celebrant or Minister to offer a Service to suit your family’s needs.
More relaxed services such as these are perhaps a little out of the “norm”. And yet they are a viable option for families who find themselves stuck. Torn between a loved one’s wishes and their own desire to farewell them in a fitting and dignified way.
So, are you in a position where you don’t want the coffin (or even an urn) present at the service?
Look no further as this could be just the style of Service you’re looking for.
