Difference Between Celebration of Life Services and Funeral

Here at Keyser Funeral and Cremation Service, we can help you determine what is best for your loved one as you arrange a service. There are many misconceptions on this topic and sometimes this can be a confusing part of planning, and choosing the right service that is honorable to your loved one.

There are many different types and terms of services that you may have heard before including:

  • Life Celebration
  • Funeral Mass (A mass of Christian Burial)
  • Funeral Service
  • Memorial Service
  • Life Story

Each and every one of these services is indeed a celebration of life. They all have commonalities and intermix with each other. There are many different aspects from different services that you can choose to ensure you are planning one that will represent and honor your loved one in a way that feels right and accomplishes all the wishes and desires of your family and the deceased.
