Memorial services are very common in our society as more and more families are opting for cremation instead of full burial.
A funeral service is the most traditional of all services. There is usually a casket and full burial at a grave the same day. Most traditional funerals are held at a funeral home, however more and more families are using venues that had a significant meaning to the deceased or the family. There is often one or two days of visitation before the service for family and friends.
I am available to meet with you and learn about your loved one and work with you to determine your wishes for the service. I have resources available to assist you with your planning and preparation for the service. Our meeting can be either in person or by phone. I will assist you in gathering all the information we need for the service so that together we can make it as personal as possible. It is my passion to lead and officiate a very personal and intimate service. I do not believe that any service should be from a liturgy book where the celebrant just replaces the name of the person.
