Reflect Honor Remember
REMEMBRANCE CEREMONIES SENSITIVELY CREATED SERVE TO HONOR LOVED ONES
who have passed on, and begin the healing process for those who remain. Whether a traditional funeral or memorial, graveside service, ash scattering or any style of conventional or unconventional commemoration, remembering the dead is one of the most ancient and revered human practices. Remembering well is an essential element in the life/death/life cycle of the human experience, and a legacy to future generations.
As your Celebrant, it is my distinct honor to reflect the most memorable expression of the life being remembered and celebrated. Authenticity and intimacy inform every aspect that goes into the planning, writing and officiating the memorial honoring your loved one. I work to create a sacred "container" for your family and guests to enter into, and to draw healing from in the days and months that follow.
In addition to being certified in end-of-life services by the Celebrant Foundation and Institute, I served on their faculty for five years teaching the Funerals and Memorials class across North American and western Europe.
I extend my thanks for these words shared in response to my offering to families at such a sensitive time:
"Thank you for making the service for my mom so beautiful. You were the perfect voice and personality. It was so touching the way you involved the grandkids. It brought healing to us in a raw and difficult time." - Tina
"It is impossible to express our gratitude for presenting our son as the wonderful man that he was. We could not have achieved our goal of an extraordinary goodbye to our great son without you." - Janice and Thomas
So many guests mentioned what a great contribution you provided to remembering my mom. Truly amazing how accurate and touching your words were. I even heard from someone who thought you were another sister!" - Adam
"Thank you for creating such sacred ground to celebrate the transition of our beloved friend, Rosemary. Your strength and compassion are inspiring and show us the way forward." - Kathleen
