When a friend approached me to link his father’s life story to the headstone and launch it at the unveiling, I felt it was an honour to be asked in doing that for him. As a funeral celebrant, the experience for me each time, is unique in journeying with the family. This is no different! It just made sense to me, that if I could offer another service that helped families with their loss and grieving, the time and effort was worthwhile. My father passed away just recently on 23rd April 2016 and my brother died suddenly four weeks prior, on 23rd March 2016 so I understand loss. Do you ever forget them? NO! And hope I can help you with your journey too.
I have been a wedding and funeral celebrant for a few years, alongside 24 years of graphic design (print and digital), webdesign, approved supplier of QRCodes and all online marketing. My experience comes from an advertising background so my work comes with senior experience and reassurance.
