Funeral and Life Memorial Celebrant
A Caring Presence for you and your family so you can Celebrate a Life
Servicing Greater Adelaide, Fleurieu, South Coast and Adelaide Hills Regions of South Australia
We prepare for the birth of a newborn, and we mark the end as we celebrate the life that was. What about the ‘-‘ dash in the middle.
Death or ‘sorry business’ within the Aboriginal Culture is a truly shared and community experience. Do the indigenous cultures around the world, including here in Australia, have something the teach us?
No more beach walks, no more going out together, no more sharing a bottle of wine. Once the person was there, and now they are not; forever. How do you support someone through the ‘no mores.’
Why do we use the word wake? It seems quite a strange word to use given the circumstances. The funeral industry, like other industries, has a language all of its own.
Should we take children to funerals? I did no get to go to Grandpa’s, and although I have fond memories, I still wonder the wisdom of my parents in the 1970s.
Yes carers need compassion, empathy and listening. But they also need some normal! It will keep them sane through the tragedy.
How do we memoralise someone who has died? Burial plot, mausoleums, ashes? Is there a further way to memorialise, and leave a positive legacy?
When death happens without warning, the shock and disbelief are unbearable.
“They have died. I did not treat them so well. And the guilt is unbearable. What am I going to do?”
The final little pieces with a deceased estate. The trick is to let people know who need to know. They are often very helpful.
