Ensuring Memories Live On
Every Life Has a Unique Story to Tell
I will help you plan a personalised funeral service in its entirety, along with your chosen Funeral Director, so that all runs smoothly and you have time to reflect on your loved one. I will write the eulogy, select or assist in the selection of readings and can be of assistance to anyone wishing to read tributes. Within the service, there will be time for reflection and I can include prayers or blessings, if desired. I can also assist with selection of music to play throughout the service. Designing a personal, stress-free ceremony to include everything which is important to you is my goal.
Work Your Way
In creating your service, I can visit you personally or we can work together via email and phone. I will ask you a number of questions that will provide invaluable information about your loved one’s life, that will become a farewell conducted with respect and dignity. It is my mission to ensure that my service is of comfort to you in your grief, but more importantly, that it helps you to remember the joyful times. The service can be conducted at any location including chapel, hall, your home or at the graveside.
Contact Me Anytime
Your time is precious. You will have my total focus to be able to meet the demands of a short turn around time. I can work around hours that suit you and I'm available to discuss your needs and ideas as inspiration strikes. You will have my undivided attention and professional capabilities at your discretion.
Giving Peace of Mind
The first service I wrote and conducted was my cherished mother’s funeral. As you can imagine, this was very difficult, but it's important to note that I was able to write her service with her input before she passed away. This certainly made it much more personal and heartfelt. She even wrote a goodbye letter to be read at the service, which was somewhat unconventional, but so like her. If you are thinking about how you would like your own funeral to be conducted, do please get in contact so we can discuss a completely individual approach to your final celebration.
Grief and Healing
Coping With Life After Death
Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. Losing a loved one can leave you feeling emotionally raw and frayed. I want you to know that there is no 'normal' timetable for grieving and you don’t have to struggle alone. Contact me to find out more about services and resources to help you start healing.
