Super heroes gather together to celebrate a child's life

Donna Walthall-Darby,

Being a part of the funeral industry, we get to hear some amazing stories of how families celebrate the lives of their loved ones.

A family held a beautiful and heartfelt service for their young child at a local funeral home my family owns. In honor of his love for super heroes, the parents asked everyone to wear their favorite super hero t-shirt to the visitation. I was amazed at how many people participated and paid tribute to this young boy. It was a small thing, but it made a huge impact on the celebration.

The parents are in the process of designing a memorial that reflects their child's personality. Watching all of this happen reminds me how lucky I am to be part of an industry that truly cares for the families they serve.
