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