Se­nior cen­ters host ‘Life Cel­e­bra­tion’ talk

Record Observer - - Senior Satellite -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — Have you ever won­dered why funeral and me­mo­rial ser vices seem to con­cen­trate on the last days of one’s life rather than the en­joy­able times that you re­mem­ber?

“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.

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?

This free pre­sen­ta­tion will take place at 9:30 a.m. May 11 at Sudlersville Se­nior Cen­ter, 605 Foxxtown Dr., Sudlersville, and at 12:30 p.m. June 16 at Kent Is­land Se­nior Cen­ter, 891 Love Point Road, Stevensville.

Regis­ter in ad­vance by call­ing the Kent Is­land Se­nior Cen­ter at 410-604-3801 or the Sudlersville Se­nior Cen­ter at 410-438-3159.
