Memorial Gathering

Memorial Gatherings with Honor

With Honor Cremations, a memorial gathering is dedicated time (90-minutes) for up to seventy-five family members and friends to hold a service in honor of their loved-one. Our team will work with your family to plan the gathering and choose a convenient date and time. Honor staff will be present on the day to coordinate any details of the gathering.

We believe your family’s gathering and service should reflect your family’s preferences and traditions. Our approach is to create a space where you feel comfortable honoring and celebrating your loved-one how you prefer. Memorial Gatherings with Honor Cremations are held in a welcoming setting at Crossroads Community Church in the nearby city of Palo Alto.

Memorial Tree In Honor of Your Family

Our team believes that life is precious and that death is a unique time for honoring life. Our team will plant a memorial tree in honor of your family in a California Forest where reforestation efforts are taking place. In partnership with One Tree Planted, these trees will stand for generations as a living memorial for the families and individuals we have the honor of serving. Your family will receive a certificate from One Tree Planted once your family’s tree has been funded by our team.
