"Families really appreciate the opportunity to reflect the person that they're saying farewell to and acknowledge the things that they'll remember about them and treasure those memories," Ms Smith said.
"I guess the rules are, there really aren't any rules."
MORE and more of us are choosing to go out in a splash of colour, we want choices — even in death — rather than a cookie cutter approach to commiseration.
"Death is always an unwelcome experience. We avoid it as much as we can. When death happens, we wonder "what type of coffin they want? What should we do? What's appropriate at the time?" We believe that a good funeral is the beginning of a healthy grief process.
Increasingly, families are moving away from the traditional morbid wooden coffin and opting for the more personalised & colourful tribute coffin to remembering loved ones and honouring the life they lived. Traditional wooden coffins magnify grief, personalised coffins provide comfort, joy and even laughter at the service.
You'll be surprised how a few treasured photo's on a coffin can tell a wonderful story about your loved one. Our innovative approach and personal service helps families celebrate the life of their loved one in a unique and special way. From design through to production, we do a wonderful job at helping make a sad time more bearable.
“It is a rotten day, and if you can do anything to lift that gloom, it is a good thing.”
Lifestyle coffins provide grieving families the opportunity to personalise their loved ones coffin in the most unique way. Many families I have been privileged enough to care for have expressed how special it was to have such an option available to them. Corey and the team are truly making a difference to families in their time of need.
