Kate meets with the family at their home, another location, or by phone and email. She gets to know about the life of your loved one and what they meant to you. Out of this conversation the ceremony is created to include the content and wording exactly as the family wish it to be.

It will be a celebration of their life, a time of reflection and an opportunity for the family to connect to their feelings and hopefully feel supported and uplifted by the service. All the elements of the service will reflect the spirit of the person and be a moving and uplifting service for all. 

Kate's intention is to be a stable support for the family and to help you to start to come to terms with your loss in a meaningful appropriate way that is fitting for you and for them.

To create and write the ceremony we will need to see if there are any advance funeral wishes in place. Any requests or wishes will be reflected in the final ceremony.

Kate will send you a copy of the service after the home visit. A few days later when you have had a chance to look through the ceremony, she will phone you and you can discuss any final amendments so that the service is a really fitting tribute to your loved one.
