Living with ‘IT’

Posted on

I really do love my role as a Celebrant.  Not just the good bits, where I still get goosebumps marrying a couple, or officiating at a Baby Naming Day.  But the funeral side too.  It is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done, helping families through the saddest of times, and hoping […]
