Funeral

Many of the ceremonies that I perform are created over many months of planning, however funerals are very different and are usually arranged within a few days.

Funerals can be confronting. Strong emotional connections to people can make it difficult to find the words ot express how we feel. We can feel gratitude for their contribution to our lives but we can find it difficult to express the words that accurately portray the impact of their lives on their family and community. How do you sum up someone’s life in a short eulogy?

How do you determine what have been the most important achievements in a life? I can offer the support and guidance needed to prepare a personal celebration of life.

The carefull choice of readings, poems, and music become the building blocks of celebrating a unique life. I encourage the participation of family and friends in building and presenting the service on the day. While the celebrant plays an important part in running the service I often find the best services are those where important memories are shared by those that know the person best.
