"If the road is beautiful, walk the road slowly. 
Be a turtle, be a snail and even better than this;
stop walking and live the road fully."
-Mehne Murat Ildan

Funerals/Celebrations of Life

We all understand the significance of the line from Shakespeare’s MacBeth, “Give sorrow words”.   In a family’s time of grief and loss and possibly shock, finding the words that honor our loved ones and help us mourn our loss can be overwhelming. But a celebrant can do that…my calling is to do just that, to give your sorrow words. As a celebrant I can skillfully and carefully assist you in this honored calling of creating a funeral service that honestly tells the story, and celebrates the life of the deceased. Even though a funeral or memorial is about the person that dies, it is for those still living. I believe a funeral is a grace-filled ceremony with room for laughing as well as crying, inspiration along with healing.

I am very intuitive when interviewing the family that has just experienced a death. I listen carefully, ask questions sensitively, and write a ceremony that gives their sorrow words. I have a wealth of readings, poetry, rituals and funeral customs from which the family can choose if they would like. I will write the entire ceremony, including the eulogy if needed and continue to consult with the family until the service is exactly what they think would best honor the deceased. I will professionally officiate the service while cooperating closely with other service providers involved. I can provide a graveside service or a scattering ceremony after the funeral in desired. The family will receive a keepsake copy of the funeral.

I would be honored to create and officiate the very significant service that you need for your loved one at this time.
