Our certified celebrants help create and present a funeral, memorial, or celebration of life
that is unique and personalized. Many families today do not belong to a church or have a minister. Many of these families choose to have a celebration of life service instead of or alongside a traditional sermon. Our celebrants are trained to provide this important service. Our celebrants honor the wishes of the family to deliver either a religious or non-religious service. Families can design a memorial tribute just the way they want.
