At difficult times such as the death of a loved one, you want to be assured that you are working with someone warm, understanding and professional. You want to say farewell and celebrate their life in an authentic way that is a true reflection of them and of your family’s values.
So strongly do I feel the importance of quality farewells and doing funerals and memorial services well, that I am a committee member of the Compassionate Community Network. This group has amongst its goals, to increase the knowledge of the general public into all things related to death and dying and to increase death literacy in our communities. In 2020 I was honoured to have been the Coordinator of Dying to Know Day for the South West.
There can be a lot to think about and organise and the ceremony itself can seem overwhelming. Let me guide you through the process step by step by helping you select music, readings and tributes to achieve a ceremony that says everything you want it to.
Apart from writing and presenting the funeral or memorial service I specialise in making beautiful visual tributes that reflect the life of your loved one. Examples include using flowers from their garden; holding the service in a place that has special meaning for you or your loved one; incorporating treasured possessions into the floral tributes; decorating the crematorium or venue of your choice and organising all the special details that will make the day memorable.
