Why Use a Celebrant?
I have this vision, not a very practical one I know, but I like to imagine that at the end of a funeral ceremony, the deceased will be smiling in their casket, knowing that their final moments with their family and friends was just as they would have planned it. Now read on to find out how.
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou
When someone you love dies, time stops, The world is going on as usual 'out there' and somehow, full of grief, hardly able to think straight, you have to unravel the parts of a loved one's life and assemble it again to make a memorable service to mark the end of their time shared with us on earth.
What should you do?
I know what to do. With my calm empathy, my excellent listening skills and my ability to work with people, I can produce a wonderful ceremony, a true celebration of life that you and your family can be happy with. I can use your words and memories to write the whole ceremony, subject to your approval and then at the funeral service, I can deliver the entire service thoughtfully, clearly and lovingly as if your lost loved one was indeed part of my own family.
