It is one of my greatest honours to facilitate the funeral process for family and friends who are grieving. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to hear stories and memories of fascinating people (even the most “normal” of lives has involved something interesting), and I respect this opportunity for the privilege it is. The funeral ceremony is often called the ‘End of Life’ ceremony and celebrates the end of someones’ life.
I am a warm, calming presence at a funeral, always prepared to go above and beyond to create a funeral ceremony that provides the start of the healing process.
With a background in event management, I am willing and able to manage the logistics of a ceremony (multiple speakers, AV requirements, etc) as well as writing and delivering a personal, heartfelt ceremony and eulogy.
While I love being given the opportunity to craft a eulogy myself, I am also experienced in supporting family members or friends to write and deliver the eulogy. I have many resources available, including prompt questions to start the process of remembering a life and capturing the important moments.
I am also available to work with people before they die, both to design their ideal funeral service and to write their eulogy; after all, nobody knows their own life story better than the person themselves, and it can be useful to capture as much information from a person’s own memories before they pass. I have resources available that create a structured and safe way to capture a person’s wishes for how their memory is honoured, from their wishes regarding burial or cremation through to how they want their funeral service to run, including music and reading choices.
