The Funeral and Memorial Information Council (FAMIC) encourage families to Have the Talk of a Lifetime – to engage in meaningful conversations reflecting on the past and planning for the future.
For various cultures, this time of year includes many opportunities to remember, honor, reminisce, share and express gratitude – beginning the end of October with Hallows’ Eve, Halloween, All Saints’ Day, All Souls’ Day and Dia de los Muertos, throughout the month of November with Veterans Day, World Kindness Day, Thanksgiving, National Day of Listening and National Day of Giving.
Holidays are the perfect time to celebrate and Have the Talk of a Lifetime with your loved ones. As families and friends gather for the holidays, take the time to create a special family event and begin a new tradition, one that matters most.
