Memorials, Celebrations of Life, and other Ceremonies of Remembrance
When a Memorial Service or Celebration of Life is informed by the story of a life lived, it becomes a powerful and inspiring force. And yet we have all been to a funeral service where the officiant read the deceased’s name from a fill-in-the-blank ceremony. What a shame. We leave feeling even worse, like something vitally important was missing. Our ceremonial vision always is to create an atmosphere of profound connection so you and your family and friends can share memories, laugh through your tears, and find the courage to live in a world without your loved one.
Modern Celebrant loves giving voice to your memories in a way that illuminates your loved one in the fullness of his or her being. We weave all the threads of your words, stories, and thoughts into a beautiful tapestry — the actual ceremonial experience.No two Modern Celebrant memorial ceremonies are ever the same. How could they be? Each of our lives and the way we live them are so different!
“Thank you for an amazing memorial. Jackie would have loved it and everyone was so impressed by you and the way you captured her essence. I can’t thank you enough for the work that you did. You brought focus, healing and positive reflection.”
When people see Celebrant Michele celebrating marriages and births so joyfully, they forget that she works on “the death stuff” too. In fact, Michele’s primary motivator in becoming a Celebrant was to work with families in the raw times of their lives… by creating deeply meaningful Celebration of Life, Memorial or Funeral, Ash-Scattering, or Committal Ceremonies. Michele is a trained Palliative Care and Hospice volunteer, and she has mourned and experienced firsthand many deaths – friends, family, and strangers – some of which were tragic deaths including suicide. In many ways, being with death has transformed the way Michele lives her life.
To be with people at the moment of death, and to be of comfort to their families afterwards, is a tremendous privilege. Please feel free to call Celebrant Michele Davidson directly at 1-604-992-4217.
