"Marianne . . . . you really captured the essence of who Connie was, without focusing too much on the troubled times. Thankyou, thank-you, thank-you."
"Would like to say a big Thank-you for the beautiful service today in memory of our father. What I loved about the way you delivered the service was the personal touch of how you sat down with all of us to personalize the details of what made my dad the man he was, and not just a normal church service. You are a special lady with a beautiful gift, this was your calling. Continue the beautiful work you do for all other families who have and will lose a loved one."
"The service for Nancy was absolutely beautiful. We had nothing but positive feedback. You have the perfect voice - very calming. Truly a gift. Thanks again."
".....thank-you for a beautiful service for Sandy. More than that, your meeting with all of us enabled us to learn so much about each other. Sitting with you we all bonded that much more at a time when we needed it. You were so respectful when we were all over the place. You are a blessing."
.... you said it would be a beautiful service but you far exceeded my expectations. Thankyou so much for all you did to make Marks tribute special. You are so good at what you do and may people commented the same to me afterward."
I am a professional funeral celebrant; assisting families and presiding at funerals memorial services for people of all denominations/non-denominations.
Offering dignified and formal non-religious ceremonies and services to commemorate a loved one's life and parting, where spirituality is emphasized and not religious dogma.
I have experienced a great deal of loss in my own life and know intimately the deep pain of grief, as well as the power of healing. This, perhaps is my greatest qualification.
