Why Do-It-Yourself Memorials & Funerals?

More Meaningful, Personal & Lasting

  • Every life is unique and has a story to tell.
  • A memorial service lovingly planned by family and friends, and held in a location special to the loved one, is a legacy that long remains.
  • Instead of the traditional funeral at a funeral home, make the celebration of life more intimate and family centered.


More Flexibility

  • Choosing how to honor a life’s legacy is deeply personal; who knows your loved one better than you? The only limitation is your imagination.
  • Create a personalized memorial from the comfort of your home – plan it all at once, or take your time if you feel overwhelmed.
  • With hundreds of poems, prayers and music choices, you can create a service that conforms to any religion, tradition or ritual.


More Cost Effective

  • With the average funeral costing $6,000-8,000, a simple direct cremation and a DIY memorial is more affordable.

More Control

  • Celebrate Me Home encourages families to discuss how they want to be remembered.   It helps loved ones know their wishes will be met and reduces stress on their families.
  • With cremation there is no urgency for a memorial service, family and friends can focus on their healing and good memories.
  • Consider a Living Life Celebration, while you are still here. Enjoy time during your final days with family and friends, and be an active participant in telling your story.
