ShareLife® for Veterans
Share Memories. Celebrate Life.
A life matters, and everyone deserves to have his or her life shared. ShareLife® transforms the traditional funeral event into a remembrance and celebration of beautiful memories over a person’s lifetime, offering hope, healing, laughter, and tears for family and friends.
ShareLife provides Veterans’ families with a unique approach to planning a patriotic remembrance event that captures the story of a loved one’s life through innovative multi-sensory technology, storytellers, and an overall experience that leaves guests celebrating the most joyful and meaningful moments of a lifetime. ShareLife includes, but is not limited to:
A larger than life format that shares the story of a lifetime with family and friends using video themes, picture-in-picture, music, sound effects, and scents. Memories made at the beach, on the golf course, or in the worn saddle of a Harley-Davidson are relived again in an environment like no other. In addition, with a dozen pictures, a funeral home can create a Life Tribute video in minutes that tells a life story.
Veteran’s Video Backdrop*
The Veteran’s Video Backdrop is a customized patriotic theme used in a Multi-Sensory Experience room created specifically to honor Veterans.
Below are just a few of our themes available at select VFS locations. Is there a theme you like, but don’t see? There are hundreds of possibilities available to you. Contact us today to custom create a theme for you or your loved one.
Certified Celebrants or specially trained speakers present a meaningful and personalized service that tells the life story of a loved one. A storyteller leads the service and creates a beautiful remembrance event that captures the wonderful memories of a person’s life and can be the single officiate for the event or work alongside a member of the Clergy.
Receptions and Life Event Celebrations*
Extends the experience of a personal and meaningful remembrance event into a time of food and sharing allowing family and friends to remember their loved one in a personal and inspired event celebration. These receptions are uniquely themed around the life story of the person being remembered. These take place on-site, in the funeral home’s reception facility, or at other locations.
