It can be athletic sports like football, soccer, baseball, or basketball. Or card games like UNO and board games like Chess or Scrabble.
The meal can be the deceased person’s favorite food or a buffet of recipes they enjoyed. This is a great way to remember them with fondness, have fun, and share food with family and friends who also cherished the deceased.

And if you can afford it, hire a band to play some of the deceased’s favorite music.
Host an auction or game show of their favorite things
