I’ll meet with you and whoever else I need to meet with, to get an idea of the type of funeral your loved one wanted. We’ll use that meeting to get as much information about them as we can.
I’ll send you a questionnaire that asks all sorts of questions about your loved one and request that you complete as much of it as you can and send it back to me within 24 hours.
Based on what I learned in our first meeting, and from the information in the questionnaire, I’ll write and send you the first draft of your loved one’s funeral ceremony. I’ll ask you to go through it and make any changes you want, before you send it back to me.
I’ll meet with you again, to run through the funeral ceremony – and confirm we’re all on the same page. I’ll make any required amendments and then email you the final version.
On the day of the funeral, I’ll arrive in plenty of time to meet you before the funeral begins. Then I’ll deliver your ceremony precisely how you asked me to – and ensure we’ve farewelled your loved one in a way that’s authentic and memorable!
