The Last Party March 12, 2017

The Last Party, Wagoner, Oklahoma

The Last Party

As time has gone by tradition and religious views have sneaked into how people celebrate their lives at the end of their journey here on earth. So often people attend a funeral service and leave the church or funeral home chapel not knowing any more about the person who they attended the service for. I really don’t believe this is how our lives are intended to be remembered for our last party here on earth. Life is intended for us to have fun and enjoy what God has blessed us with and to be honest we all have a little bit of that wild let’s have fun side in us. So the question arises how do we plan our last party in life that we will never attend? One of the best ways to make sure that you get a service that you want is to write it all down and give it to someone to open after you have transitioned into eternity. Second you can get with a Certified Life Celebrant which helps plan, organize and bring structure to your party. Third be honest with yourself no one knows you better than “You” only you know what you really want and what is important to you. Fourth remember what the “Party” is really about, it’s about allowing your loved ones and friends to celebrate who you were as they begin a new journey in life without you. A celebration service can take place anywhere. You can have it outdoors at the lake, on a creek bank, in a reception hall, bar, casino there is no wrong way to have a ceremony that acknowledges the life that you lived. For me personally I want to have an outdoor “Party” in a tent with funny stories about my life, what my accomplishments were and who I truly was. In conjunction to the memories being shared I want people to enjoy a nice cupcake with a glass of Kool Aide for the kids and a glass of wine for the adults. If the weather is permitting than the service will take place on our family property by 14 mile creek. I want everyone to have fun, laugh and cry and know that I lived my life the best that I could to help those God placed in my path. Celebrating your life has nothing to do with religious views but has all to do about you being the awesome person you are. For more information on recoding and planning out your “Last Party” contact Certified Life Celebrant Anita J. Shipman for more information 918-485-9525. Let your story be told and allow your family and friends acknowledge the wonderful life you lived and share the moments in how you touched them with your life.
