Our Story

Welcome!

Life has a natural cycle of beginnings and endings. So, why do we celebrate the first part and avoid talking about the last part? I am passionate about creating innovative and engaging experiences to help us SEE death as a natural part of life and FACE our death with grace.

SEE = Actions we can take now
Spark awareness and conversations
Empower choices and decisions
Express our wishes to others

FACE = Impacts to consider for:
Family/friends
Attitudes about death
Care and cost of care we receive
Environment

Knowing we will all go through this at some point, Playing With Sparks has done some of the thinking and gathering for you. Let us help you in your journey to sort through what matters.

Mixed Messages

I am starting to hear more and more that people don’t want a funeral they want a celebration of life, and they don’t want anyone to be sad at their event, they want them to feel happy and to feel more like a party.
