As a certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® it is my honor to meet with you one-on-one and creatively craft a one-of-a-kind meaningful, life-affirming ceremony for your loved one that awakens what is eternal within us and shows us how an individual life is part of a much grander design. I look forward to collaborating with you in identifying those elements of celebration, ritual, and remembrance that are authentic to your loved one as well as nourishing for the family.
The author Sharon L. Alder wrote: “Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.” A fitting tribute and affirmation of a person’s life can ensure continued life in the hearts of those who remain. The unique legacy of the individual as told through stories, quotes, music, poetry, and memories can serve as a source of inspiration and comfort for all in attendance for the days and years ahead.
I know firsthand how vital and sustaining a personal commemoration and tribute can be. I have served as the officiant at funerals and memorials including my father, a military service member, other family, and friends. I am an ordained inter-faith minister that celebrates the sacredness of all cultures, across all religions. Thus I honor all philosophies, beliefs and traditions – religious, spiritual, secular, inter-faith and multicultural.
I will bring to bear my experience and my talent, along with my desire to make sacred this passing, this life, this celebration, this remembrance.
