Similar to planning a meaningful event, Bekavac Funeral Home encourages all families to do more than plan a funeral for the deceased. By celebrating a life, survivors are more likely to distance themselves from the emotion of grief that inevitably comes from losing a family member or close friend. Celebrating a life means applauding that person's life and rejoicing in the fact that they lived.
The person who died probably had an impact on most people attending the visitation or service. They had a special gift that everyone felt. It might have been strength, or humor, or stubbornness. Whatever it was, it was a quality that touched others. Celebrating a life means sharing those memories of the person and how they affected your life; the adventures or quiet moments you shared, the ways they inspired you, or little things they did to make you laugh. Memories can be funny, sad, happy, or bittersweet, but they all tell a story about that person.
Bekavac Funeral Home can help you celebrate a life by capturing the spirit of the person and presenting it to everyone who attends. All you will need is your knowledge of that person and the special attributes that made them unique. These memories will help you create a service that celebrates a life and brings healing to you and others. We feel this way about a funeral because we believe that a funeral's focus is on the person who has passed, but the funeral's effects are for the people who remain.
