Gra­sonville Se­nior Cen­ter hosts talk on ‘Plan­ning a Life Cel­e­bra­tion’

Record Observer - - News -

GRA­SONVILLE – A free pre­sen­ta­tion to an­swer the ques­tion why fu­neral and me­mo­rial ser­vices seem to con­cen­trate on the last days of one’s life rather than the en­joy­able times that you re­mem­ber will be held at 10:30 a.m. April 7 at the Gra­sonville Se­nior Cen­ter.

“Creat­ing A Life Cel­e­bra­tion” will in­tro­duce the lat­est trends in the world of an un­der­taker, that of a “Life Cel­e­bra­tion.” Ryan Helfen­bein of Last­ing Trib­utes Fu­neral Care, will dis­cuss this one of a kind cer­e­mony for fam­ily and friends to come to­gether in a ca­sual set­ting with food, mu­sic and me­mora­bilia and share in the joy­ful times of a life well lived. This mod­ern way of say­ing good­bye is grow­ing in pop­u­lar­ity and is truly fit­ting for the in­di­vid­ual per­son­al­i­ties in each of us.

The fol­low­ing top­ics will be dis­cussed:

How can one go about creat­ing a Life Cel­e­bra­tion?

Can re­li­gious el­e­ments be tied into this type of cer­e­mony?

What can be in­cluded in my Life Cel­e­bra­tion?

Does this cost my fam­ily more or less than a tra­di­tional ser­vice?

Is my fam­ily able to have this with an open cas­ket vis­i­ta­tion?

Can I plan for a Life Cel­e­bra­tion in ad­vance?

In­ter­ested par­tic­i­pants may call Ann Martin at 410827-6010 to regis­ter in ad­vance.
