• When I was searching for Celebrant's I had no idea where to turn. I requested a referral from our funeral director who pointed me to Dee as well as a couple other options. After reviewing the three and also a list I had found myself...I knew Dee was the perfect fit for our family. She spent hours with us, learning and fully understanding our mom's story and incorporated all the pieces that were of so much importance to our family. Dee took the time to ensure I was confident with the direction of our tasks as we moved forward and eased any concerns or reservations I had. Dee superseded any and all expectations and told our mother's story with such poise and grace. It was truly an honor hearing her story.

  • Your gifts gave this grief focus and attention which it so deserved. Your gentle voice spoke of this wonderful child who came into our lives so briefly.

  • I always have the utmost confidence when I call upon Dee to celebrate a life for a family. She has the ability to capsulate a person's life in 45 min, be tactfully truthful, and adapt to the desires of a family for religious or non religious kind of service.

  • Our experience is that Dee is awesome with creating a true celebration of life. We are proud to have Dee work with us and have her represent our funeral home.

  • Dee has people skills that are phenomenal. Families usually tell me that with in ten minutes they felt like she was part of the family. Her speaking abilities are unmatched. I have never encountered anyone that tells a life story like Dee does. I can hang on her every word for 45 min. and wonder where the time went.

  • You did a superb job at Dad's service. You conveyed fact and details about our family. What pleased me so much was it was all done in an upbeat way. People remarked that they left the service feeling good. Nothing could have pleased me more.
