The funeral is dead. Today, many people are forgoing the maudlin trappings and timeworn rituals of traditional funerals and instead opting to celebrate their loved ones’ lives in ways that are much more personal, meaningful, and memorable. A memorial service that truly honors the person who has died and that uplifts those who attend takes careful planning.  Celebrating a Life offers sensitive guidance on every detail—venue, food and drink, music, flowers, eulogy, program, mementoes—all with the aim of making sure that the memorial service’s honoree is remembered just as he or she would have wished. Checklists and an extensive resource directory provide much-needed help to those who have very little time in which to make the arrangements. As author Faith Moore says, this book is not about regrets, but about reimagining how we say good-bye.
