As a certified funeral celebrant in Brunswick, I am honored and privileged to spend some quality time with you when some you love and close to your heart has just left for heaven. It is understandable that the fir few days after the death are extremely saddening. Death is usually a stressful situation and you may be still in shock or denial when we meet. The information provider can be very difficult for some newly beavered and deeply distressed people to undertake. My role will be to stitch together the information provided by you and create a heart touching ceremony, along with a patchwork quilt of words whose pattern of words flows from one edge to another forming a seamless narrative, and slowly the beautiful words create a mental image of the deceased. A funeral celebrant is actually the main host of the funeral celebration and officiates at the service.
A ceremony is deeply personalized, personal set of words which cannot be repeated to another family’s occasion, whereas a service is “insert name here template”. As a funeral celebrant, the joy and immense happiness I receive when I create ceremonies for both the deceased and beavered. There are some element which will recur in ceremonies as there are limited number of poems, which have been penned down to bring comfort of the bereaved, without speaking about hereafter, and using similar inappropriate metaphors. Comfort is very important in a funeral ceremony. A good and a well-organized funeral ceremony will bring comfort to the bereaved. A perfect funeral ceremony is when people say that wouldn’t have loved that? At the end of the funeral, feeling that it has been a helpful experience, then I believe that I have done a perfect job. A perfect well-knit funeral ceremony does not try to deny the pain and the sorrow of the death of your loved ones, but finds a smooth way and make it less unbearable.
It is an obvious fact that day after someone dies will often be painful for you, as it’s the normal human nature to react upon loosing someone close to your heart. And if a death comes after a prolonged illness or suffering, then it brings relief to their family and love ones. However, there is always a sense of guilt of how can I be relieved that my dear loved one has expired? However, it’s quite strange that someone unknown coming to your house and ask questions about the deceased person is quite intrusive, and can be quite difficult to handle the situation. This is the main reason I try to be as perspective and match the same tone as with yours and to lead the flow of questions as naturally as possible. I always prefer taking hand written notes and mental notes as well because of some possible reasons –if a person is aware that their words are being recorded, then the person becomes conscious, and a proper truth wouldn’t be revealed about the deceased.
