Celebration of Life
I’ve felt truly honoured to produce and emcee these celebrations over past years before I decided to become a civil celebrant.
Celebration of Life parties can be held for those sharing a milestone birthday or someone who is facing a terminal illness. In fact, for honouring anyone at all for whatever reason.
An uplifting occasion where stories are told that bring about laughter and even tears while the person being honoured is comforted and blessed with knowing how much they have touched other people’s lives.
It is also a time for the person to talk about their life and what they have learned and passing on life’s lessons.
I always enjoy watching the faces of the younger generation listening and learning from the older generation. Very often this brings grandchildren closer to their grandparents in the last months of their life.
A celebration party allows for good-byes and closure when facing terminal illness or after the loved one has passed.
