When someone you love dies, your world is profoundly altered. The deeper the love, the greater the feelings of loss and grief. It can be hard to navigate your new world even as you feel gratitude for the loved one’s special place in your life and in your heart. You want a memorial service that reveals your loved one and the deep mystery of their life.


As your celebrant, I will work with you to create a memorial service that captures the unique beauty and complexity of a life that has touched and shaped many. Because your loved one was a unique soul, so must the ceremony be unique, a true reflection of a person’s mark on this earth and on the hearts of those they knew and loved.

The material for the memorial service comes from a personal meeting at a place of your choice – whatever is most comfortable for you. We will have a conversation about your loved one, talking about what moved him; what brought joy and tears; what special mark did she make on her family, community, the world; what you loved most about them.


I will create a ceremony that reflects what you share about your loved one, and includes the people, the readings, and the eulogies that you choose. I am also available to make suggestions if you wish. You will see the ceremony in advance to make sure it reflects what you want to say about your loved one. Afterward, I will give you a keepsake copy of the ceremony and its tribute to your loved one, knowing that they will live on in your heart and memory.
