The considerable challenge of preparing for a funeral or memorial service comes at a time when loved ones are grieving and most in need of sensitive guidance and skillful support. Good in the End™ Celebrant Services’ celebrant listens carefully to how loved ones wish to remember and celebrate the life of the person or pet who has passed. She draws upon a wealth of knowledge about ritual and a library of ceremonial resources. The result is a customized ceremony that is personal and deeply meaningful and that respects and assists the bereavement process.
End-of-life ceremonies may also be incorporated in “living funerals” in which the honoree participates, as well as other late-life celebrations that mark an elder’s milestone birthday, retirement, downsizing, or move to assisted living.
A POETIC GIFT
Voice of summer swelter
Quiet woods go stereo
Leafing out in decibels
Heat bugs chide
Live! For soon we die.
