We'll help you with a memorial service or life celebration

Amy and Fitting Tribute's event planner Lauren Guida will help you orchestrate any kind of memorial service or event to honor a life. We'll secure the best venue, counsel you on catering, readings, live or recorded music, flowers, order of service, program creation, and sign-in opportunities that are a little different than the traditional registry book at the door.

With memorial services, some families want the urn of cremated remains to be present, some wish to rent a boat for a harbor scattering service, others plan a life celebration event-- in a restaurant, home, auditorium, or at one of  Green-Wood Cemetery's chapels--with speeches, videos and slide shows. After that, we'll help you organize a gathering to place an urn into a cemetery niche,  or think out the earth burial of an urn with subsequent gravestone unveiling.

For a "living funeral," we can help you assemble a heart-centered tribute with toasts and testimonials flowing both ways while someone with a terminal diagnosis is still alive. For someone quite elderly or frail, the recognition of a significant birthday serves this same function. It is the fantasy of an increasing number of gravely ill people to be able to attend their own life celebration service. They want to say goodbye to you too. Now they can. We'll help you think it out and share with you our thoughts and experiences.

 Fitting Tribute Memorial Events recently helped a family plan a gorgeous gathering in the auditorium of The Brooklyn Museum, which can seat more than 300 people. We felt honored to witness a remarkable first--a husband's eulogy as loving Powerpoint presentation with tears and humor, a splendid and fitting salute to his wife's life, artistically lived.
