END OF LIFE CEREMONIES
For life and death are one,
even as the river and the sea are one.
It's so important to honor a loved one's passing in ways that are authentic, healing, and respectful. As your celebrant I will compassionately engage with you to create a ceremony that fully honors your loved one and your family's wishes and needs.
I listen attentively to fond memories and stories of your loved one that help me craft a eulogy that allows his or her spirit to shine through.
After the ceremony, you will receive beautiful hand-bound keepsake copies of the ceremony to remember your loved one by.
Funerals, Memorials & Celebrations of Life: The ceremony can be as simple or elaborate as you choose, in the style and manner that best honors your loved one.
Green & Home Funerals: Many people these days are opting for a simpler, more sustainable way of saying goodbye. Home funerals and green burials are a growing trend, and may be just the right way to honor the spirit of your loved one.
Ash-Scatterings & Burials: I am available for graveside and ash-scattering ceremonies in the location of your choice.
End-of-Life Celebrations/Pre-Need: There is a growing number of people in our culture who are choosing to have celebrations as they approach the end of their lives. This can be a beautiful way to celebrate a life while your loved one is still alive. Many are also planning their own funerals and memorials ahead of time, and I can assist in this process.
Animal Companions: Losing a beloved pet is a profound loss for many, and honoring an animal companion's death can be just as important as honoring the loss of a loved human.
