At alaVida, we have a way to help every family create a Beautiful Goodbye.
After spending many years helping families celebrate their loved one’s life we have found that families generally fall into one of three groups.


  • Visit to make cremation arrangements online. Our cremation specialists are available via telephone if you have any questions.
  • We will provide you a copy of My Beautiful Goodbye - A Guide to Celebrating My Life, My Way so that, when the time is right, you can design a memorial event
  • For a wide selection of merchandise such as urns and keepsakes visit our online boutique at


  • Everything offered to our “Do it Yourself” families plus
  • Start by ordering an Initial Consultation with an experienced alaVida consultant to walk you through the process and brainstorm some initial ideas for a creative service.
  • Order an alaVida Event Planning service to turn the initial idea into an actionable plan for you to implement.


  • Everything offered to the “Get us Started” families plus
  • alaVida will make all necessary reservations, finalize the menu and produce all materials for the event
  • On the day of the event, we manage every aspect of your Beautiful Goodbye and you are free to spend time with your guests, celebrating the life of your loved one.
  Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.   M.L. Montgomery
