Whether at a crematorium, place of worship, home or graveside, our lay celebrant is concerned primarily with the needs and wishes of the bereaved, and seeks to reflect the life and beliefs of the dead person in a personal way.
We are glad that you lived, that we saw your face, knew your friendship, and walked the way of life with you. Now in peace and thankfulness we bid you farewell. Your spirit we commit into God's care. Your companionship, your kindly ways and character, your words, and deeds we commit to our memories. Your body we commit to be cremated, and its ashes returned to the earth which bears us all.
