Funerals and Memorial Services
Elaine creates funerals and memorial services in a unique and meaningful way. The service does not
have to be religious and can reflect the spirituality of the family or the loved one.
Memorial services and
funerals honour the life of the loved one and celebrate that person's life. Each person present has the opportunity
to participate as goodbyes are shared and memories woven together.
Whereas a funeral usually takes place within a week, a memorial service can be held at any time. Some people
ask for this opportunity as much as 5 years after losing someone they love.
Funerals and memorial services can be non-religious, or incorporate the beliefs of the individual, recognising and
respecting the way their life was lived.
"The memorial service was all I hoped for
and more. The creativity was wonderful. We had a small table with a photo and special objects that my mother loved.
Each person came forward to light a candle and I felt completely supported." Anne 2006
