Christine openly and willingly shared her own personal journey which helped us put our story into context.
Christine has proven to be caring, thoughtful and thorough in establishing her knowledge of who we are and what we stand for. This understanding will help immensely I’m certain with her preparation of our ceremony.
We look forward to the day and have every confidence in her guidance.
We feel so pleased we chose Christine. The ceremony went off without a hitch and many of those in attendance made specific comments about Christine’s depth of preparation and her faultless presentation.
From arranging to have welcoming music playing as everyone arrived and a very special reading of letters to each other, the ceremony held everyone’s attention from start to finish. It was easy to follow and had a down to earth format which covered all we needed.
Christine created a really beautiful and meaningful ceremony."

My husband had just a few weeks before received a diagnosis of Stage IV Advanced Lung Cancer with the prognosis of Palliative treatment only. I knew then that at some point we would need someone like Christine to help us. Little did I know how much help she would offer.
We contacted Christine in June when it became clear that the cancer was spreading. Chris wanted to be part of the planning for his memorial – something I encouraged as I knew it would benefit both of us. And it did. Christine visited us several times and spent a number of hours with us talking with Chris about his life.
She is a careful listener and was able to glean the important bits of information that were relevant. It was a relief to have someone who was so comfortable and knowledgeable about grief with us during this time.
And what a gift to Chris it was to have someone listen so intently and warmly as he told his life story. So by the time of Chris’s death in September most of the” work “had been done. This meant that we could truly offer a celebration of his life.
I know that Chris died feeling still a part of what was coming. It is Christine’s personality and her skills and training that made her presence a gift to us in such a difficult time."

It was my privilege to meet you in 2009 when you were recommended to our family for my mother Rita’s funeral. You took time to meet our family and asked many questions in an effort to understand my mother, her personality, family and cultural background. We all felt verycomfortable with you immediately. You were caring, interested, alert to so many details and respectful. Rita’s funeral ceremony was beautiful and many people who attended expressed their appreciation of your efforts, your research and warm manner.
When dad passed away recently, there was never any question of approaching anyone else. I was so pleased that you agreed to arrange dad’s farewell ceremony even though you had to drive three hours each way. You took the time and interest to get to know dad, his personality and life story and again, the service was beautiful.
Again, you asked many questions, listened to me patiently and offered appropriate suggestions for the music and readings. Both mum and dad would have been so pleased with your thoughtful efforts. Everyone who attended said they really enjoyed the ceremony and felt that they had gained an insight into the essence of Giovanni and his life’s journey.
I am very grateful to you Christine and I will always remember your attention to detail and the way you helped us farewell our parents in a very loving, personal and caring manner.
Many thanks from all of us."

Baby Layla’s Farewell
Having the table in the centre with Layla’s ashes really made her presence felt. It was amazing when people took it upon themselves to touch the heart urn after they collected a rose crystal.
I really can’t say enough that expresses how well the ceremony flowed, the special touches you added like the personal story, and how you really captured the moments on the day.
Thank you for making what was a very traumatic and difficult experience into a heartfelt and healing goodbye that ..........., ............. and their family and close friends will hold with them forever.”
