Funerals

 

“Grief is a journey not a destination” – Anon

 

 As a celebrant, living in Nowra, I consider it my honour and duty to lessen the weight of that journey through the delivery of a dignified and personalized celebration of the life of your loved one.

With my previous nursing training and experiences, I have the utmost respect for the dignity and sanctity of life. It is my belief that a life, no matter how short or long, deserves a dignified ceremony.

Family and friends of the deceased come to a funeral to grieve, to share memories and emotions with others and to reflect on a life lost. They come to be comforted and uplifted in their time of need.

It is my role and privilege to help the family of the deceased to create a unique service. The funeral service is arranged to allow the expression of what your loved one meant to you and your family. In creating the funeral service, I take into consideration the relevant cultural background and/or religious beliefs of the departed and the family,

I believe it is important to tailor each service to a memorable celebration of your loved one. Music, readings, poems and verses, eulogies and rituals are all part of celebrating a life. I can assist you and your family to coordinate these for the funeral service, helping to turn a distressful event into a beautiful memory.
