A More Personalized Final Sendoff Now Available
HOUSTON, TX. - November 25, 2013
(Nov. 25, 2013) – Personalization. We experience it almost everywhere in our daily lives – our cell phone ringtones, our wardrobe, sometimes our license plates. We experience it on special days – our birthdays, our weddings and increasingly…our funerals.
The Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers is proud to now offer the service of certified celebrants – funeral directors who have been trained and certified to meet the needs of families during their time of loss by providing a funeral service, memorial service or tribute that is personalized and individualized to reflect the personality and lifestyle of the person being remembered. The practice, widely used in New Zealand and Australia, is catching on in the United States.
This exciting new service offering is for those in our communities who do not identify with a particular religion or prefer to incorporate a more individualized approach to life celebrations. A funeral service or tribute planned and performed by a certified celebrant is not cookie-cutter; it is one of a kind.
The Dignity Memorial network now employs certified celebrants in areas of Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and British Columbia.
The Dignity Memorial network of more than 1,800 funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers is North America’s most trusted resource for funeral and memorialization services. Dignity Memorial providers offer an unmatched combination of products and locations serving families with care, integrity, respect and service excellence.
