‘Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones shines down to let us know they are happy.’      Eskimo legend

Finding the right celebrant for your loved one’s Celebration of Life (funeral) Ceremony is very important.
 Members of the family may wish to meet several celebrants before finally choosing one.

[Families should know that they do not have to have the celebrant included in the Funeral Director’s package. They can choose their own – one that they feel comfortable with.]

While we are positive that we have the personal qualities and skills to ensure your Celebration of Life Ceremony will honour your loved family member, we would be very only too pleased to meet with you on a no-obligation basis at one of our home offices (Julie in Greenmount OR Jenny in Thornlie) or at your home.

At that meeting we can discuss your particular needs for the Celebration of Life Ceremony. We will also discuss with you about how we will work with you and your family members to create a ceremony that is meaningful and celebratory of the life that has been lived and lost.

We can assist you to create a Celebration of Life ceremony that honours and acknowledges the life lived – each ceremony is unique, lovingly and individually crafted in response to the life story of the one who has passed, and the wishes of the grieving family.

As very experienced celebrants we are positive that we will bring dignity, professionalism, creativity, warmth and support for you and your family.  We really enjoy working with people to do this important and rewarding work, creating memorable Celebration of Life Ceremonies.
