With the current breaking news of Michael Jackson’s Memorial Service and stadium funeral, it seems appropriate to remember those who have passed, and specifically, the ways in which people have honored them.
From circus funerals to DIY funeral printing and online funeral planning, this cluster of funeral innovations explores 20 different ways to honor life.
Implications - It used to be that funerals were considered morbid and depressing, and therefore they remained stagnant in innovation and uniqueness. However, as more people begin to view funerals as a way to celebrate life rather than mourn the loss of it, more offbeat, interesting and innovative funeral options abound. It is no surprise that consumers are embracing these new, happier types of funerals in order to make the pain of loss more bearable.
