Can a function less formal than a funeral or memorial service be arranged?

A Memorial Reception or Gathering of Friends is a less formal event. It allows family and friends to share their loss and share treasured memories of the deceased. These gatherings may include light refreshments and can be held at any appropriate location, including the funeral home, a park, a restaurant or the home of a family member or friend.
