A guide of alternatives to traditional funerals, commemorating lost loved ones in a meaningful, personal way. Today, many people are forgoing the trappings and timeworn rituals of typical funerals, and are instead opting to celebrate their loved ones' lives. With careful planning, services like these can truly honor the person who has died-and both comfort and uplift those who attend. Celebrating a Life offers sensitive guidance on every detail-venue, food and drink, music, flowers, eulogy, program, mementoes-all with the aim of making sure the memorial service's honoree is remembered just as he or she would have wished. Checklists and an extensive resource directory provide much-needed help to those who have very little time to make arrangements. As author Faith Moore says, this book is not about regrets, but about reimagining how we say good-bye. "In a caring, practical, and authoritative way, Faith Moore tackles a very difficult topic. Her direct and warm advice is a fabulous resource. This book is a must-read for anyone who will face the inevitability of honoring and celebrating the life of a deceased love one." -Peggy Post, director of the Emily Post Institute and author of Emily Post's Etiquette, 17th Edition
