Commemorating A Life

Many times, a commemoration ceremony is called a “celebration of life,” but we know that word can be misunderstood. Certainly, when you’re grieving the loss of someone you love; “celebration” may be far from your thoughts.

That’s why we prefer to use the word “commemoration,” which simply implies a ceremony or service in memory of a person or event.

The time for celebration may come much later in your grieving process, when you can find the joy and happiness in remembering a loved one. Today, just taking the time to honor their memory and recognize their personal or professional achievements is enough.

We are here to help you commemorate the life of your loved one, and promise to work closely with you, and within your budget, to ensure your loved one’s memory lives on. Please take the time to review our Personalization Services below or contact us today to discuss the possibilities.

Celebrating a Life

When you lose someone you care deeply about, it can be very rewarding to take the time to celebrate their life’s journey, their special gifts, and all they did during their lifetime for all those they met along the way.

We are here to help you commemorate the life of your loved one, and promise to work closely with you, and within your budget, to ensure your loved one’s memory lives on. Please take the time to review our Personalization Services below or contact us today to discuss the possibilities.

                                                         Live Funeral Webcasting

Letting the Public Know a Death Has Occurred

But with Squamish Funeral Chapel, it doesn’t have to be that way. We will work hard to ensure everyone in your loved one’s community gets a chance to say a final goodbye and show their support through both traditional newsprint obituaries and electronic media. Let us take a few minutes of your time to explain this service. Call an Squamish Funeral Chapel professional to learn more.
