Celebration of Life
 
It has often been said that the funeral service or a celebration of life is actually for the living, not the departed.
 
 
 
 
 

Funerals

 
A funeral or a memorial is an expression of emotions, memories and respect, a ceremony that helps us to move forward, bringing family and friends together at a time of mutual sadness and loss. It’s also an opportunity to celebrate or remember the life of someone special, a person we have loved and lost. And and a time when friends and family can come together to say goodbye to the loved one.

Grieving & the healing process
 
 
When the death of a relative or friend occurs, sad but true, those left behind need to be able to say goodbye before we can work through our grief and go on and allow the healing to begin, it’s a very emotional and confusing time. Saying goodbye to someone close is the hardest thing to endure but sharing it with your closest family and friends may help you find some comfort.
 
 
 
How each one of you chooses to remember your loved one, will give you the opportunity to grieve and celebrate with those closest to you. It has often been said that the funeral service or a celebration of life is actually for the living, not the departed.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Sensitive, empathetic & compassionate
 
 
As your dedicated Funeral Celebrant my role is to meet the family to offer sensitivity and empathy to help plan and organise the memorial service of your dearest loved one. I can guide you through the order of service, what could be included and what your options there are.
 
 
 
I know there is so little I can do to help you bear the pain of loss you are feeling, and so little I can say to help you through the day, but with your help, we will say goodbye to a very important person in your life in a loving and dignified way. You and your family are free to select the funeral celebrant you choose, not necessarily who the funeral director recommends.
