Losing a loved one of any age, whether expected or not, is extremely distressing. You will need sympathy, empathy and support in those darkest days leading up to the funeral or memorial service. I provide a compassionate and caring approach, and will help and guide you every step of the way so that the funeral or memorial service (or both) will be a true reflection of the character and life of your loved one. I will meet with you at home and talk with you at length so that I gain a true insight into the person who has passed away. I will then create and lead the service which will be beautifully worded and uniquely personal.
It will include any content you request and will be written totally in accordance with your wishes (or those of the deceased, if known). You may wish to include prayers, hymns, poetry, prose, music (live or recorded) and so on, or anything else that would fit with the values expressed by your loved one during their lifetime. It does not need to be formal, it can be totally without religious content if preferred, and it does not have to conform to any set rules or procedures.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of help to you at this very difficult time.
