Celebration of Life for

_______________________________

Prelude:

Dear Friends and family.

Welcome and thank you for coming together for this celebration of the life for

 

___________________________________________________

We come together to grieve, to weep, to mourn, to heal, to love, to share words of comfort.

I wish to share a word of comfort with you all:

Long ago, there was a poet who identified himself as, the “Son of David, king In Jerusalem.”  This descendant of David wrote an epic piece that expressed the meaning of life, and the best way of life.

This piece of work found its way into the Hebrew Bible and we know it by its English title of Ecclesiastes. In the third chapter, he illustrates for us that there is a Time for Everything.

A time to be born and a time to die

A time to plant and a time to uproot

A time to kill and a time to heal
A time to tear down and a time to build

A time to weep and a time to laugh

A time to mourn and a time to dance

A time to scatter stones and a time to gather them

A time to embrace and a time to refrain

A time to search and a time to give up

A time to keep and a time to throw away

A time to tear and a time to mend

A time to be silent and a time speak

A time to love and a time to hate

A time for war and a time for peace

My Brothers and Sisters, this is a time to weep. This is a time to mourn. This is a time to embrace. This is the time to heal. And this is a time to LOVE.

This is the time to remember the love that you shared with _______________________

This is the time to remember the love that ___________________________gave to you.

This is the time to remember the things that __________________________loved to do.

A time to search:

The poet, the Son of  David, said there was a time to search.

At this time, I want you to close your eyes and search your memory banks and try to remember what _______________________ loved so much to do.

This is the time to remember the things that he/she loved to do. Take a moment to remember, if you will, what was it that you remember he/she loved to do.

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow.
Try to remember, and if you remember,
Then follow.
Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow.

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That dreams were kept beside your pillow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That love was an ember about to billow.
Try to remember, and if you remember,
Then follow.

Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow.

A time to remember:

Open your eyes now and let us share the memories we remember:
Do you remember his/her favorite food? Someone shout it out please.

Do you remember his/her favorite sport team?  Someone shout it out please.

Do you remember his/her favorite restaurant? Someone shout it out please.


Do you remember his/her favorite color? Someone shout it out please.

Do you remember his/her favorite television show? Someone shout it out please.

Do you remember his/her favorite movie? Someone shout it out please.

Do you remember his/her favorite actor? Someone shout it out please.

Do you remember his/her favorite actress? Someone shout it out please.

Do you remember his/her favorite book? Someone shout it out please.

Gratitude:

          Thank you for sharing the memories.  This is how you celebrate the life of a loved one who is no longer with us in the flesh.

You celebrate by remembering the things that your loved one loved best and foremost.

You celebrate by remembering the stones your loved one gathered up after it was scattered.

You celebrate by remembering the things your loved one mended after it was torn.

You celebrate by remembering the times your loved one danced and did not weep.

You celebrate by remembering the time your loved one spoke and was not silent.

You celebrate by remembering the last meal you shared with your loved one.

 

A blessing for the meal:

How important is a last meal?

Those who were close to __________________________.  Can you remember the last meal he/she had?

          A bygone meal is something simple and yet, we tend to forget it.  What did I have for dinner last week? I cannot remember.  It is not important.

          But, in the life of one individual it was so important that a billion people celebrate that last meal in their church.

          Let me share the allegory of the last meal of that individual, a carpenter; a carpenter who had a calling to share some good news with the world.

                    It is written: “And he took bread, gave thanks,

                    and broke it, and gave it to them saying, ‘This

                    is my body given for you, do this in remembrance

                    of me.”

Try to remember _____________________ in this fashion.

We are here for a celebration of life. Remember his/her life--that was represented in the body. And which is now represented in the spirit. The bread of life is the memory of his/her body, in the living flesh, on this earth. You eat the bread of his/her life by remembering all the good things about him/her. Do this in remembrance of him/her.

Can you remember his/her last meal? It is that important.

Did ___________________________ help to put meals on the table? If yes, whenever

you sit for a meal, you should remember ________________________.  Give thanks for those times past where he/she helped to put meals on the family table.

Are there refreshments being served for this service? If yes, then let us give thanks.

Would you please bow your hearts in prayer to give thanks in prayer.

 

Let us pray.

In remembrance of ___________________________ , we give thanks for the

refreshments here today. We break bread with our Brothers and Sisters in remembrance

of you. Let it nourish us as we cherish the bread of life, that you shared with us, our

beloved companion in life. Let your memory live forever in our hearts whenever we

share the bread of life.

Amen.

Conclusion:

          Most cherished friends and family. This is how _______________________

will live in the spirit. By doing things in remembrance of him/her.  Do not let those

memories die away.

          There is a time to be born, and a time to die.

          Let the spirit of ___________________ live forever in our memories.

In closing, I wish to share a psalm, a poetic prayer, with you:

This Precious Soul

Make straight the paths for this precious soul.

Your faithful servant comes to join the fold.

A vessel filled with all silver and gold.

A most precious soul for you to hold.

I lived a life of deeds so bold.

Never thinking of growing old.

Now for me the trumpets blow,

To signal the arrival of my precious soul.

 

My joys of life I leave on hold.

Let not the memories of me grow old.

Before me lies the end of the road.

Into your hands Lord, I commit my soul.

Amen.

Marriage officiant
   Rev. David Heaukulani, Associate Pastor Robert Shimaoka, and Associate Pastor Jodi Kern are licensed by the State of Hawaii to perform wedding ceremonies. Weddings restricted to the "Big island" but we will officiate on other islands for friends and relatives.

Weddings performed at beach parks, public parks, botanical parks, hotel rooms, your home garden, wherever. 

We will do religious or non-religious. Religious will be standard Protestant Christian. You do not have to be a member of the church nor is any religious training by the couple required.

You can write your own ceremony on what you want me to say. If you wish - - it's your wedding. The fee for officiating your wedding is $65 per hour in Hilo and $85 for Ka'u, Waimea, or Kona one hour minimum which goes towards our widow and orphan fund for law enforcement and security officers.

Be sure you have a Hawaii wedding license. You can get it in a day. Get to the State Office early and beat the lines. It's slow because there is just one clerk handling marriages and state I.D. cards. The license is good for 30 days. After your wedding you will sign the license - - the bride must write down the name the bride will choose for the marriage name. I must take your marriage license and file it with the state. They in turn will forward an official document to you. email us if there are questions. 

Congratulations on your decision to be bonded in love and marriage.
