Saying a final goodbye

Laurel, I just want to thank you for today. You were so professional and yet at times so vulnerable. Thankyou so much.

December 2015


Saying goodbye to someone you love is one of life’s saddest events. And, for most of us it’s not something we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about. A Funeral or Memorial service is a final act of love for the person who has passed and should be a consoling and memorable time for the family and friends who are grieving. 

It is a rite of passage in which family members and those close to the deceased respectfully honour their life, relationships and achievements. It’s a time for them to say their goodbyes, and finalise in their minds the fact that death has happened and that their loved one is gone. 

My role as a Funeral Celebrant is to work closely with the family, assisting and enabling them to provide a ceremony that meets with their wishes, in which they are meaningfully involved. As well as reflecting their values, traditions and preferences and which honours the loved one who has passed.
