Does your Funeral Home Encourage Families To Have The Talk of a Lifetime?
People talk about many things with their loved ones: from day-to-day details to big events. Sharing stories with those who matter most should be just as important; it will be especially significant when it’s time to commemorate a life. Cherokee Casket Company, Inc. is proud to participate in Have the Talk of a Lifetime®, a national effort to encourage families to have conversations about life and what matters most. These discussions can help families make important decisions about how they wish to remember and honor the lives of their loved ones.
Through meaningful memorialization – that is, taking time to reflect on the unique life of a loved one and remember the difference they made – families and friends take an important step in the journey toward healing after death.
Individuals and their families have more options than even before for memorializing their loved one at the end of life. From simple to very elaborate, there are a variety of ways a family can honor their loved one in a personal and meaningful way.
“Memorialization is so much more than it used to be,” said Michael Mims. “It can reflect a person’s life story – their values, interests and experiences – and be transformative, healing and comforting. Meaningful memorialization starts when loved ones talk about what matters most: memories made, lessons learned and how they hope to be remembered.”
Cherokee Specialty Casket is pleased to give funeral home an opportunity to offer individuals and families in the community a free brochure, Have the Talk of a Lifetime, that will help them begin a conversation about life.
“It’s not easy to talk about death,” said Michael Mims, president of Cherokee Specialty Caskets, “I think this brochure will be particularly helpful because it focuses on life, rather than the details of a service. It’s life stories – family vacations, pieces of advice, favorite pastimes – that will help you remember those who matter most and begin to heal after they die.”
