Funerals with dignity and loving care
Funerals are sad for the living, those of us who are left behind when a loved one departs this world.
Funeral Homes draw from a range of celebrants on their books to conduct the ceremony, selecting a celebrant in whom they have confidence and is Ďrightí for the family and the focus of the funeral. The homes entrust the preparation of the ceremony to the celebrant who plans with the family.
Thatís why I consult with family and friends as appropriate to ensure that the loved oneís final farewell is dignified, caring, loving and respectful, and focuses on the positives of the personís life.
I will visit and support you, as you think through the best way to honour your loved one in a fitting ceremony. I work closely with family, friends and the Funeral Home involved, thus ensuring that all necessary arrangements are in place.
I invite family and friends to be involved in the service. This may be anything as simple as placing some memento on the casket; reading a poem, verse, a religious text or some favourite literature; and some music, to give a few examples. Sometimes, being unsure of their emotions, some people ask me to read written recollections on their behalf. An audio-visual show can also be arranged, featuring your loved oneís life and achievements.
I can help you to write your presentations, putting your words, thoughts and feelings into a simple but elegant tribute, so that when you speak, you will feel calm and natural.
I am always happy to chat with you about these services. You are totally at liberty to ask your Funeral Company to engage me to conduct your ceremony. You are very welcome to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me on 03 5998 4932 for further discussions.
