Funerals, done differently

You've come to the right place.

What if funerals felt like celebrating a life, not just mourning a death? We believe a funeral is a place for both mourning and celebration. 


You no longer need to feel like your only option for end-of-life services is a stuffy, somber funeral home.

Funerals, re-imagined.

Lighten's unique Celebrations of Life, held in a location of your choice or online, are designed and personalized to reflect your loved one’s life and identity.
