A guest blog post about finding beauty in funeral planning
We plan vacations, weddings, and for graduation parties. Such fun and memorable events that the planning can be half the fun. But sometimes there are those events that need the same kind of "planning attention", but we don't look forward to them as much. Today I'm sharing a guest post written by Tricia Andrews of Chickadee Ceremonies, which reminds us that we can take the same kind of positive energy we have for planning a birthday party and use it for planning life-marking events such as memorials and funerals. And we can also find a new kind of joy in planning for these moments in all of our lives. - Tammy

Not necessarily a fun thing to think about, but we find that planning a memorial service is actually a positive and life affirming endeavor. As co-owners of Chickadee Ceremonies, we specialize in customized and unique weddings that reflect your values and experiences. We bring this same care and respect to the task of developing end-of-life ceremonies.
Looking to a new year, it might be time to consider what your own funeral would be like. It can even be a wonderful opportunity to reflect on what is most meaningful to you, allowing your family and friends to honor who you are and what matters to you. A great article to get you started is at https://www.everplans.com/articles/reasons-to-plan-your-own-funeral-or-memorial-service. In the spirit of Tammy’s business motto, “don’t leave a mess” for someone else to deal with when you are gone. Give the gift of peace of mind to yourself and those you love. Chickadee Ceremonies believes that all stages of life can be filled with moments of grace, beauty and humor, and we’d be honored to help by working with you to plan a complete service and even officiating when the time comes.
