Even though I am Auckland based, I’ll travel to most places in New Zealand – distance is not a reason for me to say no, unless I am genuinely unavailable due to other booked commitments.
This is something that has always been a huge honour and have personally experienced a few funerals in my own whanau, including running the service for my younger brother Brent (age 43) and being one of his pallbearers. Within 30 days of my brother passing, was my father, the legendary steel guitarist, Bill Sevesi, (age 92), who passed away after his son.
Your grief and loss is something I truly understand. Don’t bare all the stress and responsibility yourself. I am here for you to help organise the funeral service, right through to burial or cremation, releasing of doves or however you wish to remember your loved one. I meet the family straight after first contact and sit with you to help you organise that last day and will work day and night to get everything sorted as per your wishes. I do not drag out ceremonies unecessarily and will help write prayers, blessings, hymns or songs to be added and other items. I work in with your cultures/beliefs and also do unveilings if you require me back to help with that service also. Don’t ever feel the burden and stress has to be carried by you alone.
My service fee varies from $450 inc GST to $650 inc GST, depending on travel and if you would like for me to also design the Order of Service brochure.
