My MIL passed away in October. We decided to delay a service due to COVID. She was cremated. We are planning a Celebration of Life ceremony in June - two states away in her hometown where most of our family and her old friends are.
We have decided to have it outside at a local park with a beautiful setting overlooking the river and her hometown.
I've never attended a Celebration Of Life, only traditional funeral services. So I'm not sure what all is expected...
We plan on having a short traditional service, a butterfly release, photos of her life for guests to view, a buffet catered for guests to eat and enjoy themselves.
Any other ideas or recommendations you've seen at a celebration of life ceremony that you liked?
