The option to hold a home funeral is a true gift, for the deceased and especially for family and friends. A home funeral gives us an intimate place for family and friends to begin their grief journey together, share wonderful stories, love, laugh and cry.
If your loved one does not die at home I will arrange for transportation. Once we are settled in your home we will then slowly wash and anoint your loved one’s body with lovely essential oils and then do a final dressing. We will add fresh flowers, silks and other precious items that you would like to present for the duration of their stay in the home. This is a wonderful time for the family and friends to add beautiful pictures around their loved one as well.
Families may choose to have their loved one in their home between 1-3 days, where I will assist you with the correct cooling techniques that will be required for the duration of their stay.
To have the option of a 3-day vigil gives your family and friends an intimate time to reflect, visit tell story’s and say your good-byes. It also gives our loved one's body the time for their etheric energy, (this is our lowest layer in the human energy field) to completely transition which then leaves just our physical body.
At the end of the 1-3 day vigil, we will then make the final arrangements for your loved one to be transported for cremation or burial.
I would be honored to support you and your family through this difficult time. If you would like more information on my home funeral service please contact me.
