Freshwater funerals is a here to support you before and after the loss of a loved one.
It is one of the hardest things to talk about a funeral when yourself or your special person still breaths.
But it can be far more difficult when the reality of their passing takes hold.
By knowing what you or your loved one would like for their funeral, it is possible you would have more choices around creating a beautiful ceremony of their lives.
As part of being a funeral director and celebrant, I have seen the options and opportunities to create a farewell that shows their life and shares their legacy with the people who mourn. Those who will feel their loss the most.
As a doula and nurse, I am able to support you with CARE - Compassion, Attention to detail, Respect and Empathy.
Freshwater funerals gives you to opportunity to take as much of the funeral arranging as you wish and leave the rest to me.
I do not work in conjunction with any other funeral company and therefore do not need to add a service fee.
The prices I offer are those added by each individual services. I charge:
a single fee for arranging the funeral
a fee if you wish me be the celebrant
a fee if you wish for a long term doula service
An a reduced fee if you want any combination of the above.
You have the option to assist with any aspect of the funeral you and the family feel comfortable:
Pall-bearing the coffin from or to the hearse
Bringing flowers from the garden
Creating a memorial table
Pouring a favourite beverage of the deceased
Creating a beautiful slideshow of memories
Creating an order of service brochure with my help
Choosing favourite music
If you want a lavish arrangement, I will forward you to services I trust like:
Sydney Funeral Company
Ann Wilson Family Funerals
These companies will take very good care of your loved one with a team of specialists.
I am a registered nurse who is a caring compassionate person to be there for you in your time of need. Allow me to walk with you to your time of transition from this life to your dying day. I will support you and your family to find that place of peace.
Some people call this work a Death Doula or a Death Walker.
Your body is in our hands. We will take care of you and support your family as they grieve the loss of your precious life.
Your life is worth celebrating. Allow me to help your family and friends celebrate the life you led while mourning the person that has gone.
