The importance of a dignified, meaningful and ‘true-to-life’ story told by way of a funeral, memorial or end-of-life ceremony cannot be underestimated. The funeral ritual is a way of expressing our beliefs, thoughts and feelings about the death of someone loved. Rich in symbolism a meaningful funeral ceremony should give testimony to the life of the deceased and provide support to mourners.
An authentic funeral ceremony has enormous power to help the grieving to better acknowledge and accept the death of their loved one and offers continuity and hope for families to commence a future without them.
As a funeral celebrant I take the time to get to know your loved one through personal interview with you and your family and collaborate with you to craft a beautiful, unique and heartfelt tribute to your loved one.
Many families find the process of collating memories, and incorporating music, poetry and other symbolism very healing.
