When Someone Dies
Honouring the circle of life. Whatever your culture, circumstance or challenge, we’re here to help you care for, remember, mourn and celebrate your family members and friends. We can take care of everything, we can coach you in your version of a DIY funeral and we can custom-create a hybrid version where we work together in a way that fits your needs and desires. Start with where you find yourself today.
We encourage you to explore your hopes, your fears and your past experiences with death and funerals. We support you to be as actively involved as you wish to be. It’s our job to tailor our services to fit your needs and desires, not the other way around. We can take care of everything, we can coach you in your version of a DIY funeral and we can custom-create a hybrid version where we work together in a way that fits your needs and desires. We’re here to help.
