Life Story Celebrant
Every life lived is unique and special to those that survive. I believe that this philosophy should be evident in the funeral service. As a LIFE STORY CELEBRANT, I have experience in conducting funeral services, celebrations of life, memorial services, grave side and chapel services. The services can be held at any funeral home, the residence of the deceased, cemetery chapel or any location selected by the family.
Life is all about building relationships. Relationships are personal, individualized and unique between two or more people. As family and friends gather to pay their respects, it is important to recognize and acknowledge these relationships amongst those in attendance.
My services include meeting with the family to gather information for the service. This consultation with the family can be held in my office, the residence or at the location of the service. I will customize the service based on the life of the deceased, and I will honor any special requests the family may have. You may choose to have scripture readings, music, family participation, a candle lighting ceremony, poetry, videos, memorial/prayer cards and programs as part of the service. The service may be of any duration in length and can include eulogies from family members. Our LIFE STORY CELEBRANT Services may be scheduled during the day or evening and on weekends.
As a LIFE STORY CELEBRANT, I assure you that the service you select will honor and reflect the life and values of the deceased. Every aspect of the service will be tailored to the families specifications. The LIFE STORY CELEBRANT fee will vary depending on the service(s) that are requested. There will be additional charges for musicians, prayer/memorial cards and programs. With every service, if you request, one DVD tribute is included. The LIFE STORY CELEBRANT fee usually start at $100.00. All fees include consultation time with the family, planning the service, traveling time, DVD player and disc player for music if selected. For more information on our LIFE STORY CELEBRANT Services, please call the funeral home at (716) 362-0199. You may also e-mail us at [email protected].
