Carolyn will also speak at the burial (if applicable) to farewell your loved one as part of the final farewell.

  5. I have an End of Life ceremony question - I'd like to arrange to tell my story or hold a Living Wake. Can Carolyn help?
    Carolyn arranges Living Funerals or Living Wakes for those clients who would like to be present at the celebration of their life. These are emotional, loving and memory-filled tributes to the person with family and friends. This is often chosen by the terminally ill or elderly as an alternative to a traditional funeral.
