Donna Henes, Certified Funeral Celebrant
EVERY LIFE DESERVES TO BE CELEBRATED IN A SPECIAL WAY
AND EVERY FAMILY DESERVES A MOURNING EXPERIENCE THAT IS DEEPLY SIGNIFICANT
More and more families today are looking for ways to personalize funerals and memorial services so that they better reflect the life of their loved one. Sadly, all too often, traditional funerals are cookie cutter affairs — generic and impersonal — reflecting neither the values nor the beliefs of the person who has died.
As an experienced nondenominational ritualist and Certified Funeral Celebrant (by the In-Sight Institute, sponsored by the New York State Funeral Director’s Association), I offer customized creative, sensitive, spirited end-of-life ceremonies. All services are designed specifically to suit the individual needs of each family and are planned in collaboration with the near and dear of the deceased.
My mission is twofold:
To honor the life of your loved one in a meaningful manner that respects his or her beliefs, reflects his or her personality and circumstances, and celebrates the significance of the relationship that you shared.
To offer comfort, consolation and grief support to those relatives, friends, colleagues and communities who mourn their loss.
I would be honored to work with you in your time of need.
