I know how overwhelming it can feel when someone close to you dies, and how precious it is to have someone by your side, taking all the time necessary to create the service that is just right for them, and for you.
The amazing freedom we have in this country to honour the uniqueness of someone who has died means we can work together to create a beautiful ceremony unlike any other.
We can talk about your feelings and memories, and the person who has died, and prepare a service that expresses their character, spirit and values. The right blend of words, music, stories and reflection can make even a short service an extraordinary, moving, life-affirming, and healing event, that people will want to remember, not rush to forget.
On the day, my role is to hold the space, support all those contributing, and lead the service, whether spiritual, traditional or non-religious. I create a peaceful honest space in which to say what needs to be said, celebrate a unique life, and say goodbye.
