A meaningful ceremony matters, especially when experiencing the loss of a loved-one. A generic off-the-shelf ceremony just won’t do – how can it possibly be meaningful? Together we will create a personalized ceremony to honour your loved-one. I will spend time with your family to elicit and gather stories, to get to know your loved-one through your eyes. We will explore ideas to realize your preferences for the ceremony. I will weave together what is shared into a unique ceremony that embraces the involvement of those eager to participate. Before I officiate the ceremony we will review it, to ensure the tone and the details are correct. As a Master Life Cycle Celebrant and Life Tribute Professional, I am certified by both the Celebrant Foundation & Institute and the In-Sight Institute. These certifications, combined with my education, professional background and experience as a Registered Nurse in geriatric and dementia care, provide a blend of skills that allows me to professionally and compassionately approach my work with families. As Chair of the Celebrant Funeral Network for CF&I, I guide interaction of Life-Cycle Celebrants® across North America, on emerging trends in end-of-life ceremonies. I am the founding host of the Make Ceremony Matter More podcast program, on FuneralRadio.com.

You did a wonderful job conducting the full event Cyndy and you spoke passionately and collected, something the rest of us couldn’t do.  We all really appreciated you being available on short notice and for the fine job you did.  Mom was very comfortable with you at the helm.  T.H.

Thank you also for again for all your hard work and patience. It was an extremely stressful time for all of us and your calm and gentle manner made it all so much easier for us to make decisions. We were all very pleased with the Service. F.F.
