Funeral & Memorial
“In the end these things matter most:
How well did you love?
How fully did you live?
How deeply did you let go?”
Losing a loved one is devastating. It's a time of shock, bewilderment, disbelief and in the case of protracted illness, sometimes a blessed relief. No matter what the circumstances, it is a time of profound change - a time to reflect, give thanks and say goodbye to the physical form we have known and loved. This is usually a deeply difficult and painful time, which means that the way a ceremony is created and conducted can support a family with their grieving and healing.
Arrange A Funeral
When preparing for a funeral I work closely with the family and Funeral Directors to co-create a ceremony that honours the beloved deceased whilst meeting the needs of the mourners. I believe a funeral should deeply honour the beloved that has passed whilst providing the family/friends an opportunity to express their grief and pay their respects.
Plan Your Funeral
Thinking ahead & planning your own funeral can be a beautiful gift and offering for your loved ones. I work with people who wish to explore their desires & wishes for their own funeral service in a way that affirms their values & beliefs whilst supports those beloveds left behind. Planning your own funeral can be a creative, empowering and informative experience.
Eulogy Writing Support
Translating feelings and emotions into words can be a challenging task - especially when gripped with the grief or sorrow of losing a beloved. I offer support and guidance to individuals and families who wish to create a meaningful eulogy for a loved one. I also offer an extensive library of poems, prayers & songs you may wish to incorporate.
