Planning a funeral, a Memorial Service or Celebration of Life, usually occurs when you are aching like a broken rib, time is at a premium, and it’s the last thing you feel capable of.
Grieving families are often rushed into making frantic, last minute decisions; deciding on the service, the music, the program, the poetry, the video.
All while you are completely emotionally bankrupt.
At Creative Funeral Ideas, we believe that everyone can design and create a unique service that tells the story of their loved one, and our mission is to help you do just that.
The goal is to create a personalized and individualized service to reflect and highlight the personality and life of the deceased. And to establish the significance of the deceased's life. To show how their life touched people. And the value they brought to this world.
Do you understand the significance of this?
I have seen people living a life sentence of regret after the funeral, as they simply held a generic service, with no attempt to celebrate the uniqueness of their loved one.
Impersonal generic funerals do not help the family heal. People want to express how much the deceased meant to them and how much they are going to miss them.
A service should recognize the death, but celebrate the life.
This is the cornerstone of a service that will be remembered.
The ideal celebration consists of favorite songs, stories, poems, photographs, tears, and yes…laughter.
Acknowledge the pain and give family and friends the right to cry, weep and laugh at the good times, to help deal with grief.

Nowadays, many people have drifted from, or do not have a religious affiliation.
And many believe in God or a universal spirit and feel a deep connection with nature and the earth but do not wish to use a church or clergy person.
Some folks believe in a higher power but only wish to use a member of the clergy for an opening and closing prayer.
And many members of the clergy and funeral directors also use this site to help with creative ideas for their service.
