MEMORIAL SERVICES2018-08-25T11:34:04+00:00

I am sorry for your loss, and I am here to walk you through it with a compassionate and peaceful heart.  For over ten years I have been officiating funerals mainly because some people are disillusioned by organized religion, yet see a value to honor their loved one with a service.  With a Masters in Pastoral Ministry and an education in Spiritual Direction, I can navigate the kind of service you desire be it secular, religious, or spiritual.

It is best to call or meet in person and talk about your needs.  I am available for outside, at home, or destination commemorations.  Grief support is available apart from or included with a service if needed.

“Everyone was so complimentary about Mom’s service and I couldn’t have done it without you. It meant so much to me too!  Please thank your son for doing such a great job on your website posting. I was impressed with it and you went way beyond initial expectations. God bless, Nancy.”

Yes! A resounding, Yes.

What kind of services do you offer?2017-05-01T17:25:31+00:00
