Pre-need Funeral Option
Writing a tribute with the contribution of one who still lives is a personal way of providing a reflection of your life prior to death. It takes away worries of leaving the finer details to your family at a time of emotional distress when thoughts do not always reflect on the past accurately after your passing.
More people than ever are taking matters into their own hands and leaving full instructions including their own personally written funeral service.
Meeting with you to create a story that will be presented at the funeral celebration is not something many people will think about but the action you may consider does mean that you have maximum input to the script with accurate information.
The detail is upto date at the time of writing, however, the tribute can be altered by you at anytime, it can also be amended by those whom you chose to arrange the ceremony should this be necessary.
The full service which can include songs, hymns, readings, poems and other elements can be included at a later date by the person arranging the service.
The script should be kept with your personal papers, it will also be lodged with the Institute of Civil Funerals. www.iocf.org.uk the third copy is in my files. Should I not be in position to deliver the service, a celebrant locally will retrieve the document, complete the order of service to your family’s satisfaction and lead the service.
If you wish we can meet annually to adapt and update the script as necessary.
" Thank you, Ashley George, for today, we thought it was going to make us feel low sorting out our funeral wishes, but today we laughed, heard some good stories, which made us feel good.
Plus knowing it's done the way we want, plus no extra stress on family puts us at peace."
Love you. Big hugs xxx Carol Y
