Each funeral, memorial, reception, or other ceremony that you do is a special event. Stories are shared, memories are cherished, and legacies are captured. Your memorial is video streamed and recorded so you, your family, and your friends can watch and re-watch the service anytime. The video recording is a lovely keepsake. Also, you may have friends or family that live out of state or are otherwise unable to attend the service. With video streaming, they can now participate.
It's important to take the time to acknowledge the uniqueness of the deceased: the individuality of their personality, and the uniqueness of their life's path. Not just for them, but for you; it affirms the relationship, and leads to healing after loss. Honoring their life is truly an act of love – for the both of you.
It's often seen as easier not to have a memorial service or funeral, and it's certainly seen as a less expensive alternative. But we're here to say this: an easy, cheaper path is not always better one. Grief experts all agree: a ceremony is an important part of the healing process.

Burial vaults or grave liners, also known as burial containers, are commonly used in "traditional," full-service funerals. The vault or liner is placed in the ground before burial, and the casket is lowered into it at burial.
