Arrangements after Death

Part 1: A Celebration of Life

A funeral, memorial or some gathering for those left behind is very important.  It provides family and friends an opportunity to say goodbye and to remember and honour the life of someone close to them.  A get-together at such a time can make it easier for them to deal with their feelings of loss and to give each other emotional support and strength.  Extracted from Saying Farewell: a guide to assist you with the death and dying process

Funeral celebrant Verna Klimack explains the arrangements that need to be made after death and offers suggestions for meaningful ways to celebrate a person after death.
