A Funeral Celebrant's mission is to create a ceremony that reflects the wishes, beliefs, cultural background, and values (religious or non-religious) of your loved one and your family. You have complete choice of and final approval over the ceremony. Nothing is imposed on you. Above all, a Celebrant funeral reflects the wishes of the family and the deceased. A Celebrant funeral honors death and celebrates life.
The Celebrant spends hours creating the ceremony and learning about your loved one in unhurried meetings with designated family and friends. In collaboration with you, your Celebrant will carefully craft a eulogy and create a ceremony with music, quotes, readings, unique symbols and rituals. No ceremony is delivered until every detail of the eulogy is checked and approved by the family.
With compassion, sincerity, and great care, the Celebrant officiates at the ceremony at the funeral home, crematorium, cemetery, or memorial location of your choice. After the funeral, the Celebrant presents your family with a beautiful copy of the ceremony as a keepsake.
As your Celebrant, I will honor both your love and your heartache in a tender, caring, yet very professional ceremony honoring your loved one. The ceremony helps to form a link between the past, present, and future. For many, it is the first step in the healing process.
I feel so pleased and honored to do this work because I have lived through the experience of loss and I understand the need to eulogize, honor, and pay tribute to a loved one that has passed on.
