Celebration of life
May the roads rise up to meet you, May the wind be always at your back'. Anonymous
The end of life may be blessed with gratitude for a life fulfilled, rather than a ritual imbued with mourning, creating a wonderfully peaceful and cherished memory for the bereaved to hold in their hearts.
At first thought perhaps this seems out of reach, but, in hindsight, a wonderfully peaceful memory to take away for all bereaved.
I believe that a funeral provides space for those who are left behind to pay tribute to a life lived, to release emotions that come with a loss, and to find continuity in their relationship with the deceased.
There are many ways to make it an uplifting, comforting and meaningful experience. I meet families face to face and will take the time that’s needed to get a sound understanding of your ideas, and who the deceased was as a person.
I provide guidance and support, liaise with funeral directors, crematoria staff and other suppliers to ensure that the funeral service honours your family’s wishes.
I have conducted natural funerals (ocean and forest) as well as traditional ones. I will work with you to create and deliver a funeral ceremony which will capture the essence of the person who has died, with dignity, warmth, honesty and affection.
