A funeral celebrant will endeavour to bring you an experience that will, just like the hummingbird, lift up negativity by making the funeral a ceremony that celebrates and remembers the deceased’s life. They do this by reflecting on the deceased’s values and beliefs and what they would like to leave behind for those who have lost them.
This is a recent testimonial – I have protected the writers’ identities.
Dear Patricia, Thank you so much for your help on the sad death of my father. The words that you read out were perfect. It was a lovely service and I think that he would have approved. You really helped us a lot. Once again, thank you very much. Love from Julie and Paul
At a time of bereavement, when experiencing the death of a loved one, having someone with the ability to bring comfort and compassion is vital if we are to remember our loved one’s funeral and the time just before and just after the ceremony as a meaningful experience, rather than a time of hopelessness and despair.
Independent Funeral Celebrant
An independent Funeral Celebrant is independent of all religions, races and general funeral expectations. The ceremony should remind people of memories that may make them laugh, cry and on who person was. By creating a Funeral Ceremony Will you can leave behind your wishes for the conduct of your funeral. That way, your family will know your favourite music, poetry, beliefs and facts about you for your eulogy. This will save them further distress at a time when they are in a state of shock after losing you. Making choices at such a time can be bewildering and even cause family disagreements. I will design and write a script, respecting your wishes, right down to the choice of coffin, transport and cremation or burial. The written eulogy can be flexible, and may contain facts about you that family or friends may not know. Either in person or online, I will interview you to find out and suggest ideas. Then I will send you a draft for corrections, and a final printed copy. I would love to support you in whatever capacity you would like. Patricia Cherry
