"Touch Someone's life"

There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them. Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do. May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy. Always put yourself in other's shoes, if you feel that it hurts you it probably hurts the other person too. The happiest of all people don't necessarily have the best of  everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you cannot go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. When you were born you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.  Live your life so that when you die, your the one who is smiling and everyone around you crying.

Celebration of Life Services

Celebration of Life funeral services offer an alternative to a religious funeral service.  Whereas the traditional religious service is predominately doctrine a Celebration of Lifeservice offers a personal, individual approach where the service is for and about the deceased. Whilst we sensitively acknowledge that we are there to mourn the passing of the deceased, the focus of the service is more upon a celebration of their life and, as such, leads to a service which is inspirational and uplifting for those who are left to mourn.

Content not being dictated by doctrine Celebration of Life services cover a spectrum from a secular humanist service to a spiritual service where hymns and prayers are included but where the focus remains on paying tribute to the life and the unique personality of the deceased.

Personal content in terms of music, readings and memories from family and friends is encouraged and guidance and support is also given for families who might wish to write the Eulogy themselves.

Time is taken to plan the service ensuring that personal wishes of both the deceased and the family are fulfilled.

To arrange for a Celebration of Life service please contact me prior to making the funeral arrangements at which time I can offer suggestions and provide guidance for organising the options available from conventional funerals to woodland burials, from crematorium to Church services.

I will then liaise with your chosen Funeral Director.

  Or specifically request your Funeral Director to contact me prior to the funeral arrangements being made so as to ensure availability



I subsequently completed training as a Funeral Minister and endeavour always to do the same for others loved ones as I would wish for my own.

Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any help in discussing your wishes
