Funeral Service – Celebration of Life
Jan Littlejohn has broadened her work as a Celebrant to encompass not only writing and conducting funeral ceremonies but arranging funerals as well.
Having recently trained in this new capacity, Jan is excited to bring her skills as a celebrant into a deeper assistance for families who have lost someone close. Creating a funeral service to honour the life of a loved-one requires empathy and the experience of a good listener who can interpret the thoughts and ideas of a grieving family with sensitivity and compassion.
Part of this desire to assist families at such a difficult time in their lives is the strong feelings that she has about choice regarding the ceremony and the importance of a funeral that accurately depicts and celebrates the person’s life, so it can assist in creating a healthy grieving process.
The more involvement members of the family have in the creation of the service, the deeper connection they feel to a ceremony that proudly does justice to and is an authentic depiction of the person who has died.
Funerals can be any shape or size, location is often pivotal, and giving families the time and space to make unrushed decisions is vital.
