Special Celebration Themes

When a traditional funeral just doesn’t seem appropriate…consider having one of our unique One Last Time Events. The baby boom generation has left their mark on every part of society as they progressed through the various stages. The same generation that gave us the hippy movement, disco, health clubs, 401k plans and $30,000 Harley motorcycles is now transforming the funeral industry.

At Carson & Son, we have created a suite of very unique memorial services specifically designed for families who are looking to celebrate the life of their loved one in a truly memorable way.

One Last Round®

My husband always told me and the kids to just throw him in the ditch or cremate him and scatter the cremains out in the woods somewhere. He was a humble man that deserved a better farewell than what he wanted for himself. We knew that we were going to need love and support from our relatives and friends when he died. That is why we chose Carson & Son to have One Last Round® to celebrate the life he lived and loved.

One Last Round® Variations

  • Post Celebration of Life golf outing and fellowship time

After the committal service at the cemetery, we all got in our cars and on our motorbikes and had one last ride in Dad’s memory. He would have loved it.
