Death may be a part of life, but when someone close to you passes away it can be a very stressful time. On top of the grief, there's an awful lot to organise.
At Sjcelebrant, we understand how important it is to celebrate the life of your loved one and say goodbye in an appropriate way, whether burial, cremation, funeral service without the deceased, or a memorial service I can help you create the service your loved one deserves.
You may request me to conduct your loved one's service, through your chosen Funeral Director and he will pay me direct or you may contact me direct through my booking form and you will be able to pay directly to me. On the booking form please give me as much detail as you can.
We can then arrange a date and time to meet with you to discuss your requirements to honour, celebrate and say a loving goodbye to your loved one.
Thorough Attention To Detail
We understand that small, personal touches can make every difference to a funeral – and that’s where we come in.
We can tailor your loved one’s funeral service to give them the send-off they deserve and you want.
Together we discuss all aspects of the service, songs/hymns/poems/readings/prayers/eulogy and any special elements you would like that reflects your loved one.
Planning For Your Own Funeral Ceremony
Planning for end of life might seem a tad morbid, but knowing that your affairs are in order and your family will be able to arrange your funeral without the stress in this time of sorrow can be a comforting action.
With this in mind, it is possible to outline your wishes in advance – this means keeping the stress of decision making of your final farewell away from your friends and family, a final loving kindness.
I can arrange to come to your home and draw up your service with songs/hymns/poems/readings/prayers, and any special elements you may want. You lead your arrangements all the way, it's how you want your funeral to be. If you desire I can write the Eulogy from the information from our meeting and you get to approve what is written, of course.
Then you can place the completed documents with your will, and any other legal documents for safe keeping until required.
Songs For Funerals
There are so many memorable songs to choose from, often families pick what was dear to the deceased or what reminds them of a special time with them.
Maybe a more subtle song to begin the cermony with, then a song for a time of reflecton and as you leave, perhaps a more uplifting song if appilcable? I am here of course to help you choose and suggest songs if required.
