Celebrations of Life
An uplifting Life Celebration may be conducted at any time. A week or two after death is most common. However, weeks, months or even a year later on the anniversary of death may be the right time for you and your family. Sometimes families are so far apart, living in different states or countries that scheduling at a later date allows more time for planning around schedules and travel. The cause of death, religions or cultural customs may also factor in to the timing of the Celebration of Life.
Scattering of Ashes Ceremony
Colorado is one of the top ten states who prefer cremation over burial. Some families choose to have a ceremony outdoors before scattering the ashes. A permit is free and required to scatter ashes in Rocky Mountain National Park as well as other national parks. Wildlife frequently make an appearance at Colorado Celebrations of Life to make it even more memorable.
Maybe there’s a terminal diagnosis or you’re approaching the end of your life. You want to have your own Last Party to celebrate with family and friends while you are still alive. Perhaps you do not want a funeral after you die. Whatever the reason, Final Farewell Parties are an up and coming trend. You get to invite only those who you want to attend this unique celebration. It can be a big party filled with balloons, music, dancing, food, libations, videos and stories being told. Ask everyone to wear bright colored clothing. We’ll brainstorm together and come up with something really spectacular. All the details will be taken care of and all you have to do is simply show up to enjoy your very own party of a lifetime!
