Have the Talk of a Lifetime℠

People talk about many things with their loved ones; everything from day-to-day details to big events. Sharing stories with those who matter most isn't just important today - it will be especially significant when the time comes to commemorate a life. The Bauer Funeral Homes are proud to announce their participation in Have the Talk of a Lifetime℠, a national effort to encourage families to have conversations about life and what matters most. These discussions can help families make important decisions about how they wish to remember and honor the lives of their loved ones.

Through meaningful memorialization - that is, taking time to reflect on the unique life of a loved one and remembering the difference they made - families and friends take an important step in the journey toward healing after death.

Individuals and their families have more options than ever before for memorializing their loved one at the end of life. From simple to very elaborate, there are a variety of methods a family can use to honor their loved one in a personal and meaningful way.

Memorialization can reflect a person's life story - their values, interests and experiences - and be transformative, healing and comforting. However, this process starts only when loved ones talk about what matters most: memories made, lessons learned and how they hope to be remembered.
