Reinventing the Funeral Experience Through ShareLife®
A life matters, and everyone deserves to have his or her life shared. ShareLife® transforms the traditional funeral event into a remembrance and celebration of beautiful memories over a person’s lifetime, offering hope, healing, laughter, and tears for Family and friends.ShareLife provides Families a unique approach to planning a remembrance event that captures the story of a person’s life through innovative multi-sensory technology, storytellers, and an overall experience that leaves guests celebrating the most joyful and meaningful moments of a lifetime.
ShareLife is an entire portfolio of products and services creating an experience that differentiates Foundation Partners (FPG) from anyone else in the funeral industry, allowing us to take the burden off Families and add value to their overall experience. From marketing and initial contact, to the arrangement process, to the funeral itself, and afterwards, we help those left behind to more easily navigate the grief journey. We work with FPG Team Members to create unforgettable moments for our Families that establishes trust, loyalty, and appreciation for all of our Partners in their individual communities.
ShareLife includes, but is not limited to:
A larger than life format at select FPG locations that shares the story of a lifetime with Family and friends using video themes, picture-in-picture, music, sound effects and scents. Memories made at the beach, on the golf course, or in the worn saddle of a Harley-Davidson are relived again in an environment like no other. In addition, with a dozen pictures, a funeral home can create a Life Tribute video in minutes that tells a life story on the big screen.
Designed to lower the anxiety of the Family and to increase the ability to plan a meaningful remembrance event. No Family has to walk into the discomfort of a cold, uncomfortable casket or urn selection room. This room setting gives the Family a warm living room environment. Using technology and a large screen format, Families are able to participate in the arrangement conversation with access to all options and total transparency on products, services, and cost.
Certified Celebrants or specially trained speakers present a meaningful and personalized service that tells the life story of a loved one. A Storyteller leads the service and creates a beautiful remembrance event that captures the wonderful memories of a person’s life and can be the single officiate for the event or work alongside a member of the Clergy.

Veteran's Funeral Specialist
The ShareLife experience begins with the sacred duty of taking the deceased loved one's remains into our care. This program has been designed to set us apart from our competition, and to provide respect and honor to our deceased Veterans. FPG also uses a patriotic cot cover for all veteran transfers, an Honor Coach at select locations, and a flag retirement program for veterans. The ShareLife rooms also have a veteran's video backdrop. For more information about VFS, click here.
Memorial Rose Transfer of Deceased
Focuses on the initial face-to-face contact with the immediate family of a loved one. In cases where the family is not present, this program makes a powerful impression on hospice or skilled nursing professionals who directly impact a family’s funeral home selection. It simply involves the placing of a white, silk, long stem rose when taking a deceased loved one into our care and allows us to leave behind an important and powerful symbol of remembrance.
