Planning your own service

Some people feel comforted by planning their own funeral service.  This often occurs when they know that their life will end due to age or a terminal illness.  They want to provide consolation for their family by planning a service which, their family is assured, is the one which they would want. They may also wish to relieve their family of the emotional burden of arranging a funeral service.

Planning your funeral service

I welcome the wonderful, healing experience of working with anyone who is planning his or her funeral service.Working together with me and their family, an individual can take this very comforting step of planning their own funeral ceremony.This person has the opportunity to write their own eulogy, if they wish, and  choose poetry or readings which reflect their feelings on leaving their loved ones behind, and choose music that they love and is meaningful to them.

A wonderful resource to have if you are involved in pre-planning a funeral is:
