We love the idea of tributes/memorials here. Anytime you can pay homage to your loved one, we really believe it is a healthy, cathartic experience. But let’s be honest: we all get tired of candles and balloon releases. That’s not to say those memorials are bad things, it’s just that they can feel routine after a couple of times.
And our loved ones deserve much more than us going through the motions.
So that’s why this idea of “tribute” is a cool idea to us. Every one of our loved ones had something they wanted to do on their list of life goals that went unfulfilled. Why don’t we knock a couple items off?
Examples: Your loved one always talked about sky-diving – it was something they were so curious about trying. Then pick up a parachute, hop in a plane and jump into the great beyond. Maybe your loved one always wanted to spend time working with the homeless. There is no reason that you can’t go down to a soup kitchen for a night and work in their name.
The basic idea is to think of something your loved one always wanted to do and then go do that as a means of connecting with them, a tribute of sorts.
And when your done, tell us about it! Video, picture, written testimonial, well-choreographed song and dance number – we want to hear about it!
