alaVida is a toast “to life”.
Join us in toasting to life instead of mourning death.

A Beautiful GoodbyeTM event is available as an end-of-life event or post-cremation celebration. alaVida is uniquely licensed to offer these personalized and customized events on location anywhere meaningful to family and friends.

We’re in the business of telling a person’s life story, whether near death or after.

Our customized events invite us
to Mourn with a SmileTM while
reminiscing cherished memories.

We’re here to help you begin the positive process of healing.

I remember you and how you
touched my life and I

Our vision at alaVida is to offer families a Beautiful GoodbyeTM,
a modern-day, positive way to organizing end-of-life celebrations.

 
 

alaVida organizes everything from A-Z; from the cremation, administrative work, to overseeing event details.

 
 
When someone we love is sick, aging, dying or just passed away, we feel as though a piece of us has left. What saves
and helps us through these intensely emotional times is joy; joy that is found in our memories of them.
alaVida helps families and friends memorialize their loved ones by personalizing memorial events and hosting them at a preferred location.
Our purpose is to design a touching and spirited event that leaves all who attend with a feeling of love and the strength to move through the loss.
 

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,
People will forget what you did,
But people will never forget
How you made them feel.


– Maya Angelou
