Life transitions always deserve recognition.


Although grief is a very personal experience, it is one that is familiar to everyone. Give a voice to your sorrow with services and rituals that honor the spirit of the deceased and respect their values and beliefs. A personalized service will respect the needs and wishes of those in attendance as well.

Create a sense of connection with those close to you and the deceased as you begin to heal from the loss. A non-denominational ceremony allows family and friends to honor the life of a departed loved one, especially when there is no specific spiritual community. Together we’ll create a memorial for the appropriate sized gathering with a time to share special memories of moments passed.


In a loving manner, this gathering becomes a Celebration of Life and helps bring some closure to the passing of a loved one.
