My values as a funeral celebrant
My work is grounded in the events of my mother’s final day. Her unexpected death was a profound lesson in what it really means to live every day as if it is your last. Live each day being true to yourself and to your values.
She was a deeply compassionate person, committed to equality and social justice. She believed in dignity and respect for every person. I am proud to bring those values to my work as a funeral celebrant.
You can read more about my mother’s story here.?This story and the quirky advice she gave me through my childhood formed the basis of my 2018 Adelaide Fringe show, Pearls. From time to time I stage Pearls at small theatres and venues throughout South Australia. I learn something new about my mother every time.
