No one wants to plan a funeral but planning a funeral can be quite therapeutic and cathartic. It is a way to show your love and appreciation by creating a ceremony that celebrates their life. Funeral homes are not the only way to have a funeral service. There are green burials, home funerals, cremations, so many different options that perhaps are not on people’s radar. I share my experience thinking through preparing for my mother’s imminent death and funeral. There’s so much stuff that needs to be done but to be able to honor her by thoughtfully creating a ceremony that highlights the love that she gave was heartwrenching but also fulfilling. How can we plan a funeral that is meaningful?
