A positive path for spiritual living

Memorials

Memorial Services

Celebrating the life of a loved one. . .

At Unity of the Valley, we create a memorial service that best reflects the wishes and desires of the family and the departed. On the one hand, we encourage a celebration of the life to honor and recognize the life of the departed and the meaningfulness of that life to others. On the other hand, we recognize the deep feelings of loss that may be present among family and friends and we support the grieving process.

We offer both formal and informal services, working with the family to provide meaning, honor, and respect for the life of the departed. Memorials are a time of “heart” and oftentimes death is a powerful spiritual teacher, for as our hearts may open in pain, great love and spiritual connection may ensue.
