Some weeks ago I performed a Civil funeral for a man in Dublin, and his wife sent me this lovely message afterwards. It’s a huge compliment as a celebrant to get such positive feedback! I was honoured to put the ceremony together with the family, and to help them say a proper goodbye.

The funeral was arranged by Peter Maguire of www.masseybrosfuneralhomes.com and took place in the Victorian chapel (pictured above) at www.mountjerome.ie

Hi Barry.
Many thanks for sending the ceremony text. It will be a lovely keepsake.
You did a fantastic job of picking up on my husband’s personality, his interests and hobbies.  Many people thought that you had known him well.
The ceremony was very moving and the music was perfectly interspersed with the narrative.  I was very happy that you could make the last minute changes requested in the script and music.  All the pieces chosen were great favourites of his.
With kind regards
