We understand that everyone deserves the same care and respect, regardless of whether the funeral is private or receives international attention.

Famous Funerals

One of the most famous funerals in the last 20 years was for the much loved Princess Diana. Diana, who was known as “the People’s Princess”, died on September 6, 1997 in a tragic car crash in Paris. Her funeral procession drew about three million mourners, not to mention those all around the world who watched as her flower-adorned casket made it’s way through the streets of London and to her final resting place.

Although his interment was private, another celebrity whose 2009 funeral drew nearly a million fans to the Staples Center in Los Angeles was Michael Jackson. This funeral, where celebrities from all walks of life paid tribute to the pop star, was also broadcast live around the world.

And, over this past weekend, our nation mourned as we watched the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. His funeral service was held at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. Father Paul Scalia, one of Justice Scalia’s nine children, presided over the 90-minute service that was attended by many in the Washington political community.


What do each of these funerals have in common? The families of each of the well-known public figures needed help to make the arrangements, choose caskets, and plan services for their loved ones…just as any one of us would for a member of our own family. The passing of a loved one brings people together, no matter who they are–and help from funeral directors and professionals is needed in every case.
