Yesterday I was privileged and honoured to take the funeral service for a much loved family man, his family had so many amazing stories, the fun they'd had, the way he always put them first, a true northern soul.The funeral was limited in numbers because of the pandemic but it still has all the elements his family wanted for his send off. It was a funeral service held in a crematorium followed by a short, dignified car procession to his local graveyard which was full of family graves, all lovingly cared for, lots of funeral flowers, predominantly yellow roses which brightened the scene. The funeral director and all staff wore yellow ties and I wore a yellow scarf as this was his favourite colour. Some lovely words said at the graveside whilst flowers were placed onto his coffin. A funeral that was full of love and laughter as well as some sadness at what the family will miss. I get a lot of job satisfaction in my role as a funeral celebrant, for me the honour of being asked to take part and create a special funeral ceremony for a families loved one is something I never take for granted, this is the last thing families can do and it is important that the service /ceremony is created and delivered with the utmost respect for their loss and to ensure the true story of the deceased is told.
