Because funeral homes are only for the service after death, they have become an automatic trigger for sadness, pain, and uncertainty. At KBYG, we are committed to reversing this stigma to reduce the fear and anxiety surrounding death. We are shifting the focus from death back to life. When our loved ones pass, we should celebrate their lives, not lament their deaths. We’re taught to fear funerals, something for which we can’t prepare. But that is just not true. Historically, funerals were meant to be celebratory gatherings to memorialize the dead for all they were: their accomplishments, their relationships, their dreams. Therefore, Know Before You Go, Inc. is committed to changing the way we, as a society, view death.
How do we truly honor a life when we’re only given a limited amount of time at a funeral home? No matter how big or how small, how much or how little, the service should be personalized, catered to how you or your loved one wants to share one’s life, be that with photograph collages, hand-crafted urns, music, and more.
When we focus on life instead of death, we give ourselves peace of mind, removing fear and replacing it with comfort. KBYG highlights your life so others will remember your unique light and glow.
KBYG provides inspiration, comfort, information, and guidance at every stage. Holistically rooted, we do it all: we help you plan before death, we help carry out that plan at the funeral, and we support you and your loved ones after the funeral service is over.
