“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; love leaves a memory no one can steal.” - Unknown
It can be so hard to say goodbye.
Funeral services are time-honoured traditions that acknowledge and honour your loved one. A funeral provides the opportunity to acknowledge that life and to say goodbye. It is an opportunity to share, to laugh, to cry. In whatever form it takes, it is an opportunity to show respect to the person who has passed, and to demonstrate support to those who are affected by the death.
The funeral honours the life of the person who has passed and can bring a level of comfort to those who are close. It is a great opportunity to share your loved one’s life experiences and also to learn about their life and times from others.
The Funeral Ceremony allows people to express and share their feelings. It often brings people together who may not have met for a while, to reflect on their memories. For many, the ceremony may be the final chapter of what may have been a time of great sadness, sometimes prolonged, and although that doesn’t finish on the day it may be the point where they return to a “new normal”.
For many people, funeral plans in the 21st century are a changing landscape. While some take comfort in the tradition of a church or a chapel, others are thinking differently & holding the ceremony in a location meaningful to them, such as in a garden, a park, a beach or a bushland setting. These ceremonies can feel more relaxed & offer varying opportunities to honour and celebrate a life as they often have no time constraints.
As your funeral celebrant my focus is to liaise with you to create a ceremony that has meaning, substance & dignity, and truly honours your loved ones life. I’ll be there to guide you at every step of the way and provide a portfolio of poetry, funeral readings and music to assist with your selections for the ceremony.
As a funeral director with Picaluna Funerals I offer full service funerals from taking your loved one into our care to the final interment. Working with our wonderful team of caring individuals (all celebrants) I will take care of all of the funeral arrangements.

“Pets leave paw prints on our hearts.”
The loss of a much loved pet can leave us with a deep and indelible sorrow.
To compound the loss our grief can be seen by many to be trivial, as it’s not a human we are grieving. It's not that people aren’t sympathetic, maybe they haven’t had the privilege of loving, and being loved by, a pet.
A beautifully written Pet Funeral ceremony will acknowledge and memorialise your pet, and the love you shared, and help you with your grieving process.
I’ll be there to guide you at every step of the way and provide a portfolio of poetry, readings and music to assist with your selections.
