Lots of us struggle to find meaning in the traditional funeral with the funeral directors in black suits, embalming and cosmetics, and expensive caskets. Most people hate funeral homes, so why not hold the funeral somewhere else?
Funeral ceremonies may be held anywhere you would hold any other life event. This could be in a church, community center, banquet hall, or at your favorite bar. The ceremony could be held in a garden, on a mountain, or at the beach. It could be a memorial bike ride or a picnic. It could be led by a clergy person, a celebrant, a friend or a family member. Or you may decide not to hold a funeral at all. It is entirely up to you.
A funeral doesn’t have to be like the ones you’ve been to in the past. We can help you to create a funeral that works for you and is a genuine reflection of the person who has died. It can be whatever you want and need it to be.
If you have different ideas about what a funeral should be like, or you aren’t sure what you want but you know you don’t want a traditional funeral, please get in touch. We’re glad to talk through the options with you. We work with all cemeteries and our service covers Allegheny County and surrounding counties.
