It's interesting; funerals and celebrations of life have much in common, yet they often appear very different. Each is a ceremony; a gathering of people who share a common loss. It's just that one is more rooted in tradition, while the other is the result of recent changes in social values. But both serve to do three things:
Yet they achieve those things in very different ways. First, let's take a closer look at what most of us commonly see as very traditional funerals.
We confidently provide a variety of services with can include the following:
Our staff is here to help coordinate a meaningful, personalized tribute for your loved one.
We were the first in the area to generate colored pictures, favorite poems or prayers on your choice of over 50 different prayer cards and folders.
Logan Funeral Homes and Logan-Videon Funeral Home & Cremation Services are the premier funeral home in the area offering Memorial Tribute Videos. We can use your treasured pictures in a video slideshow that is set to music capturing the cherished memories of your loved one in a beautiful digital keepsake that every member of the family can take home to enjoy. In addition, we provide picture boards, so families may share their favorite photographs with family and friends.
During each service, family and friends are encouraged to write their fondest memory of the deceased on our "Fond Memory Sheets", which are then collected for the family to cherish.
Families are encouraged to display their loved ones memorabilia, hobbies and interests, so as to honor the talents and creativity of their deceased loved one.
Our Directors are accessible 24 hours a day, everyday of the year. Whether a death occurs at home, in a nearby medical facility or across the country, our staff is well trained to assist you in providing the necessary funeral arrangements in a timely and dignified manner.
Our Directors are also available after the funeral to assist with the filing of Insurance Claims, Veteran Death Benefits and any other issues that may arise.
Author Barbara Kingsolver, in her book The Poisonwood Bible, wrote “To live is to be marked. To live is to change, to acquire the words of a story, and that is the only celebration we mortals really know.” We think this reflection is at the heart of a celebration of life. While a funeral, as we've described it above, has more to do with the orderly and often spiritually-defined, a celebration-of-life is more concerned with telling the story of the deceased. Celebrations of life are just that: a time people come together more to celebrate the unique personality and achievements of the deceased than to merely witness or mark the change in their social status.
Celebrations of life are similar to memorial services, which can be described as a hybrid event: combining the flexibility of a celebration of life with many of the activities of a traditional funeral order-of-service.
There's more room for creativity in a celebration of life than a funeral. Since celebrations of life are commonly held after the individual's physical remains have been cared for through burial or cremation, there is much more time available to plan the event. And without doubt, this allows you to make better decisions about how you'd like to celebrate the life of someone you dearly loved.
