Personalised Funerals

Personalised Funerals WELLINGTON began at the beginning of 2012 out of a desire to combine my skills and passion as a Funeral Director, and my love for serving others.

As a Funeral Director, I am available to arrange funerals for families where a loved member or friend has passed away. I can meet with you to discuss how you wish to say farewell to the person who has died. We can talk about the options that you have for this farewell and look at creative ways of celebrating the life of someone you loved. Anything is possible. No need to stay with the traditional funeral service if it isn't right for you.

I am also available as a Funeral Celebrant to lead the service if you have another company to look after the funeral directing.

I recently visited Christchurch and viewed the memorial of 185 white chairs to represent the 185 lives who perished as a result of the quake.

There on the board was this poem by Anne Lamott.

"You will lose someone you can't live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn't seal back up. And you come through. It's like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly - that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp".

Thank you Anne for sharing it.
