|About||The design and celebrancy of personalized, compassionate, and expressive funeral, memorial, and celebration of life services, traditional to contemporary.|
My personal calling is to help those of you who are not related directly to a specific religious tradition, or perhaps no tradition at all, by providing funeral, memorial, and celebration of life services done with sensitivity, full attention to detail and your needs, and dignity for the memory of your loved one, in styles ranging from traditional to ultra-contemporary.
Our role as a funeral service provider, both for you and your loved one, is to handle all the details of the service so that you may participate fully in the healing and closure provided through it. Our handling of all details of the service, ensures that you, your family, and friends can take that all too precious time to participate fully in the healing and closure these services provide. We will:
~ Meet with you and your family to discuss your vision for the service
~ Meet with family and friends at key moments and at the wake or visitation for prayer or words of encouragement
~ Coordinate services with your funeral home
~ Prepare a personalized order of service filled with fond stories, memories and personalized eulogy
~ Officiate at the funeral, memorial, or celebration of life service, at the graveside service, or the scattering of ashes
For the past two decades, I, as a funeral celebrant, have been privileged enter the lives of countless families, conducting services in diverse settings, including funeral homes, churches, cemeteries, and forest preserves. We also provide pre-planning of services and details associated with it.
Personally, I offer you my skills as a funeral celebrant and funeral designer, through my commissioning as a multi-faith Spiritual Director, my Masters in Pastoral Care and Theology from Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, and advanced studies in grief, ritual, liturgy, prayer, meditation, and guided imagery.
I have surrounded myself with well-qualified professionals who are well able to reach out to you at these challenging times. We work with many area funeral
