As a Lifecycle Celebrant certified by the Celebrant Foundation & Institute,  in Funerals, Memorials, Healing & Transitions, I will meet with you and your family in an unhurried personal collaboration as we work together to create a loving, personal tribute to your pet according to your wishes. As a pet lover myself, I know that nothing can take away the grief we experience from such a loss, but a genuine, well-prepared tribute to your pet eases that pain and helps in beginning the process of your grief.
